    Default I found a Plisson at the flee market

    Hello guys !!

    I just come back from the flee market and I found a nice shavng brush.

    It's a Plisson with a horne handle. The hair seem's to be a High white mountain grade. What do you think about it ?

    It was without box, but I think it was never used. Maybe a NOS piece ?

    So I had the confirmation by Plisson. This is a High Moutain White.
    It was made until 1989. Then they've changed this model

    Now I have looked on the hair base. There is no trace of soap. So I Think this brush is NOS.
    Now the question : Keep it and use it for myself or at the barbrshop.
    Or sell it on e-bay ?

    I have one probably like it, and have had a couple of others I sold. I'll keep the one I have until I see the pearly gates. I would suggest you try it. IME Plisson HMW of that sort are delightfully scritchy. Others have described them as having soft tips. Anyway, try the brush and see if you like it. If you don't forward it to ebay, or put it in the SRP BST.

    Plisson is considered the "king" of brushes pricewise anyway.

    They do make a quality piece and their HMW models are really different in a good way.
