    Add to this:

    Rooney Style 1 Size 1 Super horn handle
    Savile Row 3228 Silvertip

    Love the Rooney :D , it's a great little scubby brush that has very soft tips.

    I think I got a lemon of a SR, my 3228 has been shedding, I may have to try and send it back....:confused:

    Send it back

    I have a 3824 and it has yet to loose one hair.

    Thanks Will,

    I may have to try, I got it from another forum member, so I am not the original owner...not sure how that will all work out..:(

    Yeah true,

    I wonder who I could contact about it, the guy I bought it from got it from QED...he said he used it about 5 times. the first time I used it it lost 15-20 far has lost a total of maybe 40...

    None of my other brushes have ever shed like this :(

    Call Charles at QED and see where he gets his brushes, tell him you have a Quality control issue with SR.

    Dang brush lost another 15 hairs today, I think there is a problem with the glue in the knot :confused: :( :( :(

    Sorry to hear that, buddy. Sounds like Simpson made that SR :confused: :rofl

    I have two Savile Row brushes. They may have shed one, two, or possible three hairs each.

    This is a rare thing to hear of a problem with them, I'm sure Charles will make it right ;)

    Good luck!

    Thanks Joe and Will,

    It's going back to him this week, I am sending it back to the original owner as he only used it 10 times before I purchased it, I think I've used 4-5 times.

    Maybe the hair was just loosely tied in this one, accidents happen.

    Thanks guys, sorry for the Hi-Jack...:(

    Top 5? I wish! I only have two badger brushes, a Vulfix "Burlington" and a Kent BK12. Guess which one is my favorite and which one is my "travel" brush!
    Congrats! You're right!

    Just wanted to follow up, I got my replacement SR 3228 yesterday, so far, with 3 latherings not a single hair loss :D Must have been a problem with the epoxy in the knot as this new one looks very solid ;)

    If you could drive a Mustang one day, and a Charger the next, then a GTO, would you? :D

    I haven't done that but I did drive the following on successive days. We had a week of car swapping in high school.

    Pontiac GTO Convertable, Chevy Mailibu SS, Mercury Cougar Eliminator, Ford Mustang and finally an Olds 442. Maybe thats why I have so many things in my shave locker. :D

    Hey you guys!

    How 'bout a little courtesy to the know-nothing-about-brushes people like me?

    I need pics and links to where I can buy these things. I need a new brush or two, myself. The last one I got was the B&B fancy-dancy badger mop, but I could very well have made a dadburn mistake. The friggin' thing is so big that when I make a single pass from side to side on my face, it covers my adam's apple and fills my nostrils full of soap. Yuk!

    You would probably like a 22 knot brush with a non flop.

    Check out the Savile Row 3822, Charles at QED. :D
