We’re going to do a special release of 33 brushes with Vesuvius and Phantasia handles on Saturday, June 29. This is our first offering to include Phantasia, an Italian-made acrylic produced exclusively for Dark Holler Design Works and Paladin Shaving.
By present count there will be 12 x 28 mm Vesuvius PK-47s, 11 x 28 mm Phantasia PK-47s, 6 x 28 mm Phantasia El Dorados, and 4 x 26 mm Phantasia Chiefs. All of the brushes with handles turned from Vesuvius in this release bear a special engraving on the backside that is a representation of Mount Vesuvius (which famously erupted in 79 AD*) drawn by Cody’s wife Courtney.
The Vesuvius release will go live at 12:00 Noon Central on Saturday, June 29, and the Phantasia release will follow by two hours at 2:00 PM Central on Saturday afternoon. A separate page under Special Events on the Paladin Shaving website will be dedicated to each of the two releases. Those pages haven’t been constructed yet; however, they will generally follow the layout and functionality of the page on which Paladin Ebonite brushes are offered here.
The best strategy for getting a fast start would be to navigate to the page of interest shortly before release time and then refresh your screen repeatedly until the photos populate and live Add to Cart buttons appear.
As usual per Shopify’s standard practice (which we aren’t able to modify), there will be no reservation of a selected brush either in a Cart or during checkout prior to payment.
This will be different than any release we’ve done before. We hope it works out well.
