The 151 combines two of the 150-series shaving brush designs made 100 years ago by the Rubberset Company of Newark, New Jersey.
As some might know, Rubberset offered a variety of brushes with the 150 designation. At least one modern source suggests that Rubberset assigned model numbers based on suggested retail price ($1.50?). But regardless of how the names came about, we designed the 151 using the rounded ferrule from one brush mated to the gentle concave handle from another. The result is an extremely ergonomic handle we use for both face and bowl lathering.
The example is hand-crafted in deep, rich faux Amber resin topped with a Lapis Lazuli resin ferrule filled with our new Super Badger hair in a Hybrid shape. (Our Super Badger is discussed here on our Knot Properties page.
As with all BSSW shaving brushes, this 151 comes gift boxed with complete usage & care instructions, a signed Certificate of Authenticity, and one-year warranty.
