Damn. This site needs font colours. Without colours, it just doesn't feel right. :(

Say what? Isn't this what you're looking for?:

iconCode:
[color=#f00]red[/color]
[color=#882299]purple[/color]

red
purple

regards,
Matt

Wonderful Conner
I do love my 1305 :thumbup:

many thanks and best wishes
Ralfson (Dr)


I did like the 1305. Great brush. But strangely, I like my 2000 better. And I thought I liked smaller brushes!!!
I'm giving my badger brush another go now too, so the 1305 sees no use here now. Off to a better home for a great cause. I do hope this fundraiser kicks ass!!!

Oh. By the way. That barber hone has been lapped, and is ready to go. Figured you might need that for the listing.


Brush and hone came today safe and sound, many thanks from all of the Associates

P.S I can see the 1305 is not as broken in as mine, maybe that influenced your feel for it? and the hone OMG! its a precious thing for sure.

I like the feel of the brush. It's nice n sturdy. I like that. It just doesn't seem to hold any water for making lather. I have to dip the brush in water a few times and bring that to my face when making lather in order to get it wet enough. My badger brush holds enough water to make great lather but it's too soft and floppy. Do the boar brushes make lather better after they are well broken in?
The hone is nice, but I'll never get around to trying it. Maybe you will have time to take it for a spin before the auction.

As per today, the timeframe to donate items is closed.

We will now take 2 weeks to inventory all items, shoot pictures, and write proper descriptions.
The aim is to have them listed on Ebay from December 1st, right in time for Chritmas shopping.

Further announcements will be made in a new thread.


A big warm thank you for all who have contributed so far!

Ray, Cedric, Ralfson, and Bart.

I have found the Semogue boars are like a different animal once properly broken in, and that can take some time, I almost gave up on my 830, now its amongst my favourites

I may well try the hone before its on Egay too, TBH I have never really got on with barbers hones, although I have "Our Best Hone" that did surprise me when I was on holiday, 5 strokes on lather improved a slightly dull edge no end

Regards and thanks again

Doh. I barely got Ray's address on Thursday and my first chance to go to the post office is tomorrow. Oh well, I guess I'll be bidding on something!

No worries, If you have announced to donate something in this thread, you still have a few more days to ship it.

But the first post in this thread already said we'd close on the 15th.

Kind regards,
Bart.

Well, my dear Wim, I was at work. :) During Mondays I am doing the last technical steps before my colleagues can start printing a newspaper on Tuesday morning. During the last part that process, I merely have to monitor and feed a plate-setter, during which I can check in on Coticule.be.

But what are you doing up so late? :sleep:

Fuck, I'm stupid. Why didn't I think of a Wapi?!?

I thought only some cool, fancy and good looking would make sense, d'oh...

Of course, a wapi may be ideal to put in a 'starter' package

Glad to hear it.
Must say it's a pleasure to give something back to this wonderful forum.
Without it I'd probably be doing "shamicot" by now. :-/
