Synthetic El Dorado 26 mm Satin IvoryPaladin Shaving
Most highly prized among the vintage shaving-brushes/handles in our collection is a butterscotch Simpson M8 dating to the family-era. It is an exquisite example of both design and execution. The Paladin™ El Dorado™ handle pays respectful homage to the M8 and its maker; however, our interpretation also incorporates a few purposeful modifications. We substantially re-worked the bead, which also allowed us to open up the lower, concave section, yielding a more secure and comfortable grip. Then we very carefully scaled our design so as to preserve the overall proportions and balance of the vintage M8. The El Dorado should work just about equally well for either bowl or face lathering.
