    Gents,

    This super Rubberset 400 tribute brush is the new must have brush.

    A better than the original shaving brush. Behold the Alpha T-400. The brush details are as follows:

    The brush:-

    Material is 6063 Aluminium. This is an architectural/furniture grade and is alloyed with silicon and magnesium. Very good corrosion resistance

    The handle is solid. The material is light and hollowing it out would only mean two things: More process time (+cost) and the handle would be so light it would not stand up very well on its end when shaving. My opinion is that at about 4 ounces (100 gr.) it is not heavy at all.

    The finish is a simple anodisation - a nice soft sheen as you can see from the photos

    Hand feel - superb and smooth

    Size - a nice hand size - my hands are average size and the brush fits comfortably in my hand

    Ferrules - the ferrule is a separate part as you can see so there is an option of supplying multiple ferrules to each buyer - then you can can have one handle and multiple knots so you can mix it up a little.

    Ferrules available for 26mm knots too - please message me for details

    The package includes:

    • 1 x handle
    • 2 x ferrules
    • 1 x silver tip badger knot
    I have ferrules available for 26mm knots too - just ask!!

    Unfortunately I can't afford your pricing at the moment. Otherwise the answer is a resounding yes.

    OK Metal-Heads - the time has come. The Alpha Brush & Shaving Company is pleased to announce the Titanium Group Buy Prices as follows:-

    Note: No money changes hands until I am ready to ship.

    1. Bare Titanium Handle - Outlaw style with 27mm diameter knot hole - $115.00 Shipping included
    2. Titanium Handle - Outlaw style + Quality High End Synthetic Knot, manufacturer TBA - $130.00 - Shipping included
    3. Titanium Handle - Outlaw style + Quality Super High Density 2 band Fan SHD "Manchurian"- $160.00 - Shipping included
    4. Titanium Handle - Outlaw style + mail in your own knot (ie knotting service) - $127.50 - ship back included

    If you choose the knotting service please specify the loft and how you want it glued in - ie epoxy or silicone. I won’t modify the brush to fit the knot so please make sure you mail in a 24-26mm knot

    These prices are unheard of and will probably never be seen again.

    Each brush will be beautifully packaged in an eco-friendly bamboo tube with the Alpha logo. The brushes will have the Alpha logo on the base and another marking yet to be determined - maybe the chemical symbol for Titanium. Each brush will come with a certificate of authenticity signed by me!!

    The brush will be made in titanium and precision machined on a CNC lathe. The finish will be a hand polish - beautiful and lustrous - like a jewel to behold. The handles overall height is approximately 65 mm, 38mm wide at its widest point. The weight will come in at about 90g once the handle is filled with resin and knot fitted.
    The Outlaw is a super ergonomic handle and is designed to be palmed and not held with the finger tips. The “belly” sits nicely in your hand and your fingers are drawn, as if magnetically, to The Outlaws neck. A superb hand feel and easy to grip featuring 7 nice deep flutes.

    It is going to be a relatively slow burn - I will gather the orders, make the PO and wait around 6 weeks before the handles are ready, the knots are ready and the packaging is ready. Only then will I ask you for money.
    Come on what are you waiting for?

    All the best, be an Alpha and stay sharp!!

    Is the "outlaw" the same handle design as the T-400? If not, do you have a picture of a sample?

    Ahh, this is the Chubby 400 style handle. Some of the modern Rubberset 400 replicas are slimmer than the vintage handles. This one is THICK. In the early design phase there was a not so obvious difference. Steve @Vlasta - do you have a view of the handle from the base? Did the "extra feature" follow through?

    Mate remind me about that “extra” feature in a PM. I cannot remember - brain scrambled.
