Paladin® Barely Second™ Shaving Brushes have small – and in some cases virtually indistinguishable – imperfections. Each brush has been discounted to reflect our subjective assessment of its particular imperfection’s aesthetic significance.

After careful consideration and much discussion, we decided not to attempt verbal description or photographic representation of what accounts for any brush’s having been selected for offering as a barely second. Descriptions would be difficult, time-consuming, subjective (and, consequently, arguable). Photographs intended to clearly show imperfections would also be time-consuming and often require high-resolution images captured by use of a macro lens with exaggerated results. Our conclusion was to let customers just for themselves with the brush in hand. Upon receiving your barely-second Paladin shaving brush (and prior to use, please) carefully examine it as you would any Paladin shaving brush, and let us know if you’re not satisfied for any reason. We’ll accept prompt return of an unused brush with no fuss or hassle. "See our Warranty and Return Policies here."

At present, we only offer knots containing what is commonly referred to as 2-band badger hair, the characteristics of which combine resilient (springy) shafts with soft tips. High quality knots of this type are prized for their overall performance. The resilience of 2-band hair confers optimal backbone without excessive density. As a result, 2-band knots typically deliver superior lather production and flow-through without sacrificing comfort in use. We offer these knots first and foremost because they are what we prefer to use ourselves. Please take care to note additional details regarding the various knots installed in listed brushes here.
