This is The Outlaw. A shaving brush by the Alpha Brush & Shaving Company. This particular brush benefits from a large size, 28mm knot of super-soft, synthetic fibre hairs and a matte finish. Animal friendly, no badger had to die for its coat.nNew generation shaving brushes perform to the same standard as the top-quality badger hair brushes, but without any of the drawbacks. They don’t smell, they don’t fan out, they dry quicker, and they don’t shed any hairs. They are stiff enough to lather soaps and creams with ease, but pillow-soft on the face.nnInspired by the Rubberset 400, and the Merit 99-x series, this brush is shorter, better in terms of its proportions, excellent handling and beautifully balanced in the hand. This brush, simply put, is class, but with big attitude!nThe Outlaw is a unique brush, totally designed in house at Alpha. The material is 6063 architectural grade aluminium and it is carefully anodised to stop corrosion. The handle is turned on a CNC controlled lathe.Colour-anodising is not a plating, it cannot peel off. Composed entirely of aluminium oxide it is fully integrated with the aluminium substrate. The colour will not fade over the years and the finish delivers exceptional abrasion resistance.nThe Outlaw has a super ergonomic handle designed to be palm held, not held with the fingertips. The belly sits nicely in your hand and your fingers are drawn automatically to The Outlaws neck. This brush feels superb in the hand and it’s easy to grip thanks to the seven, beautifully engineered, deep flutes.nOutlaw has a 28mm knot secured in place with a hard setting 2-pack epoxy.nThis OneBlade Stainless Steel Stand is the perfect match for this Brush.
