Winnie 24 mm in CobaltDark Holler Design Works, LLC
The Paladin™ Winnie™ handle-design was directly inspired by and clearly reflects both the iconic Rooney Style 1 and the even more iconic Rooney Stubby. There’s a longer story to tell (as is the case with almost all of our handle designs), but the short version for here is that after a first prototype, which aimed to capture a different vision, what became the Winton ended up melding some features of the Style 1 (e.g., wider bead) with others of the Stubby (e.g., more refined groove above the base), along with substitution of the PK-47’s curvature below the bead and a couple other Paladin subtleties. We’re very pleased with the result. We’re also highly appreciative and respectful of the source influences. This brush will best serve face lathering but should also work just fine with a bowl.
Please note that these photos was taken with a 2CLND9 knot, however the handle can also be set with either an Oumo or synthetic B3 knot if desired. Please notify us within 24 hours of your winning bid if you wish to substitute for a different knot than what is represented in the photograph.
