    Default Rooney 3/1 "Genuine Silvertip" Ivory

    I have been using the "premium shave kit" brush for about 3 months. It was my first brush and I liked it. I recently purchased a Rooney 3/1 because a lot of people vouch for it here. What a great brush! If you are reading this and wondering if you should part with the money. DO IT. Your face will thank you. Once again your suggestions have helped me. I'm very grateful for the fellas who post on SRP.

    I use a very nice little rooney myself, it is a good allround brush.

    When it comes to brushes like sop many things you get what you pay for.

    The 3/1 is one of the best all-around brushes you can buy--great for both soaps and creams, face- and bowl-lathering. Good move getting that one.

    I've been using that same brush for the past several years and can say I'm really happy with it. I'm sure you will be very pleased with it.

    Rooney has always had a great reputation and made a really great brush with thick fill. I have one of their classic 2 banders and it's the tops.

    Who is now making Rooney brushes? Who is the distributor for Rooney brushes in the USA or North America?

    I can't answer your first question, but the only online distributor for their brushes in the USA that I know of is Vintage Blades, which advertises here at SRP.

    I think Vintage Blades is a dealer like Classic Shaving in California, both online dealers. They have to buy them from someone, but who?

    Now I know. They buy direct from the manufacture. I have several D.R. Harris (Rooney made) best badger brushes, which are some of the best brushes I own. I'm seriously thinking about buying one the Heritage 3/1 in silvertip.
