Vie-Long Lord Randal in Natural Brown Horsehair (Special Edition)
The Vie-Long Lord Randal brush is a BullGoose Shaving exclusive. Ron Press, Ben Lane and Ravi Dukkipati helped me design the brush and forum members at the Shave Nook chose the color of the handle.
We set out to create a horse hair brush that could handle hard soaps as well as creams and that was equally at home bowl lathering or face lathering. The Lord Randal hits the mark! Horsehair brushes require a slight break in period before they reach their full potential. By your tenth shave, this brush will be hitting on all cylanders and you will have a hard time putting it down. Natural Horse has some of the best qualities of badger and boar. It has excellent backbone and retains heat with a face feel that is similar to Best badger.
The Vie-Long logo is laser etched on the butt of the handle and it is very subtle. The approximate brush dimensions are:
Knot Diameter: 24mm
Knot Loft: 55mm
Overall Height: 115mm
Hair: Natural Brown Horsehair
Handle Color: Faux Horn
