The Paladin™ Chief handle-design reflects traditional influences that proximately include the Morris & Forndran L7 and several timeless Simpson models (notably including the venerable M7 and AS3), which themselves have antecedents in US-made Rubberset shaving brushes dating to the early 1900s. The basic shape has been around for a long time (probably because it was easy to produce on primitive lathes, looks good, and works quite well). Our design objectives for the Chief aimed to achieve subtle yet distinctive aesthetic and ergonomic refinements. This brush is especially well-suited to bowl-lathering, but it also works just fine for face-lathering. 

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.
