After many months and many emails back and forth, we finally have the prototype. This is a Vie Long brush with an OliveWood handle. The 24mm knot is a combination of badger and horse. The loft will most likely be set around 50mm. This prototype is on it’s way from Spain to California to be approved by reddit. After approval it can go on sale. The price hasn’t been finalized, I think he’s waiting to see what reddit adds to the top before setting a price, but it should be under $50 I think. This brush began as a post a couple of months ago wondering why all the other shaving forums have their own brush except us. It seemed there was enough interest so I figured I’d shoot an email or two out and see what can happen. I immediately figured since reddit is a little different, out brush should be a little different as well. Badger and Boar are common, so why not Horse?…Well, how about Horse/Badger mix, certainly most people don’t have a brush like that. A few weeks back Juan (the distributor handling the brush design and sale) contacted me asking if I could have someone make up a logo for the brush, so I made a post looking for someone. A few people said they would “draw” something up, and then A redditor with the username u/element33 stepped up to the plate. He husband talked her up and she delivered. She was kind enough to make up a few different options and after some deliberation, we went with this one. I think it looks great, and hope it gets approved by the reddit licensing team as I’m sure many of you will be excited to see it up for sale as well.
