    In spring 2019 a customer of mine in Germany introduced me to one of the owners of H. L. Thäter, Harald - boy was I excited!! We had an email chat and I eventually sent a selection of Alpha handles for evaluation. Herr Harald came back to me with some specific requirements for his brush. He wanted something that looked like my Alpha T-400 Rubberset tribute brush, but he wanted it bigger and fatter. Big enough to accommodate a 26mm knot. I did not want to just scale up the T-400 - that would be way too easy, so...


    [​IMG]
    Behold, the Alpha Bully Boy 400. This is a from scratch redraw of the T-400 - look at them side by side. The ferrule is redesigned with the threading modified to start a few mm from the top of the edge so as not to risk damage to the beautiful Thäter knot. The flutes are deeper and wider. The handle is taller. This brush is MEATY!!!
    Price - $189.99 with FREE worldwide shipping. Fully tracked.

    THE BRUSH IS A TOTAL REDESIGN
    • Taller at 82mmHere's where it'll be.
    • Redesigned ferrule

    • Thäter logo on base
    • Thäter gift box
    • Amazing Thäter 2-band fan knot @26mm
    These are available in limited numbers. The first batch is only 40 units - first come first served. I have opened a waiting list and I expect these brushes to be ready in about a month from now - maybe a teeny bit longer.

    Maybe you have answered this before... What is the purpose of the 'Part 2'? Just a back stop for the Knot within the Ferrule? Also does it have any type of groove cut to aid in unscrewing it at a later time?

    Part 2 is an aid to setting the knot at 1. Your desired height and 2. Sitting squarely. It also looks good - finished look shows no glue. It does have a groove but its not meant to be unscrewed - I suppose you could set a knot on top of it if you were really careful.

    EverGoose - a collaboration between Alpha Brush & Shaving and BullGoose Shaving supplies.

    The EverGoose takes some design hints from the Ever-Ready 200 and 300 brushes. However, it is remade in modern materials and is fitted with a superb 4th generation synthetic knot with a knot diameter of 26mm.

    EverGoose is machined from aluminium and is anodised in a delightful two-tone red and black to echo the Ever-Ready original. However, EverGoose is a little bit better - it is hard wearing and anodised in two delightful colours. It benefits from a very grippy matte black sand blasted base and a lively satin red top. It has a superb looking BullGoose brand coin on its base. The EverGoose has 5 sweet little steps echoing the Ever-Ready designs of yesteryear.

    • Height including knot: 112mm

    1. Note that these are machined in solid, raw, tellurium copper. There is no surface treatment apart from polishing. They will develop a patina if not polished - some like them with patina and others do not.
    2. Delivery will be in approximately 8 weeks from order.

    Tellurium copper is an alloy of copper and tellurium. Tellurium improves machinability of copper.
    Tellurium is usually added to copper to improve machinability ("free cutting"). ASTM specification B301 has 0.5% tellurium; at concentrations of up to 0.75% machinability is improved whilst electrical conductivity and hot working behavior is maintained. Mechanical properties are similar to tough pitch copper, whilst machinability is similar to brass - the alloy's hardnesses are increased by precipitation of copper telluride
