    Fellow wet shavers, we are back! And boy is this one a Big One!

    The long awaited
    Wickham LE 2019 Spring Group Buy
    in association with ATG and UKWSS


    "Apricus"

    Darron, Mem and our guest brush maker Steve, of Alpha Brush & Shaving Co., have pulled out all the stops and have been working extremely hard on this one.

    We are very excited to bring you the 2019 Spring Group Buy! !

    The Group Buy will run until the Sunday 5th May.
    Not only do we have our famed soaps and balms but this time we’ve teamed up with Alpha Brush & Shaving Co. who are launching their amazing CNC machined Aluminum "Outlaw" shaving brush. To mark this special occasion, the group buy brushes have all been beautifully embellished with Wickhams branding. Making them the first shaving brush to be offered by Wickhams. A quality shaving product we feel proud to put our name on.

    The Shaving Brush:

    Presenting: “The Outlaw”

    Inspired by the Rubberset 400, and the Merit 99-x series, this brush is shorter, better in terms of its proportions, excellent handling and beautifully balanced in the hand.

    Having taken months to design, with two ditched attempts, and with the collaboration of an Austrailian customer/friend, we know you will agree that the time and challenges we faced have all been worth it. This brush, simply put, is class, but with big attitude!

    The Outlaw is made from 6063 aluminium and available for this group buy in three finises and a choice of 2 different 28mm knots.


    Handle Specification:
    • Height (handle) - 65mm
    • Widest Point - 43mm
    • Material 6063 architectural grade aluminium
    • Surface finishes: 3 Options Available

    Handle Finish Options:
    1. Polished semi-shine = £30
    2. Satin aluminium = £30
    3. Anodised matte black = £32.50

    28mm Knot options:
    1. Arctic Fox Synthetic = £5
    2. Silver Tip Badger = £25 (High Quality Bulb)

    Our Arctic Fox will give you the best balance of all modern synthetics, excellent backbone, dense, evenly splayed and tips like you wouldn't believe.

    To give you an idea of how good our Silver Tip is some independent reviews:
    5* Nothing more to say. A superb knot
    5* If you want a fabulous shaving brush with jelly tips! This is a must have.
    5* A knot to die for. Plenty of backbone and soft, soft, gel tips. What's not to like?
    5* The knot is one of the best I’ve ever owned. It is dense, has plenty of backbone yet is soft at the tips. It holds an amazing amount of lather and releases it easily

    These brushes will retail at least double these prices after the group buy and will never be offered at this level again, so don’t miss these great Wickham group buy prices!


    Wickham Leather Razor Cases
    High Quality British made black Leather Razor Cases, available in a choice of stitching colour for both DE and Straight Razors.

    The shipping for just the soap is 10£ for Greece with the option of the group buy.

    The soap very reasonably priced but in the end the price will be 20£.

    Its £3.80 shipping to UK. International postage is much more. I don't think Darron/Mem/Alpha can do much about it. This thread is not the place to complain about postage costs. It is what it is, we have accept that.

    The Shipping has been discounted and capped already Randy, its cheaper than the standard RoyalMail Uk post to Grace with Shipping which for a small parcel is £12.65.

    Sorry Randy, as Mem has pointed out Royal Mail are quite expensive and I have discounted what they charge by a couple of pounds to help people. Shame as I just sent that bottle of after shave to you and could of done a job lot.

    Great job, guys!

    What’s the loft, please, and depth of the socket in case wanting one without knot? @vlasta
     
  15. vlasta

    vlasta Über Member

    The brush is bored out in order to keep it light. The depth is therefore whatever you want it to be!! - What I will do is fill the void with hot glue or resin before sending it out to give a shelf for the brush base setting. So the final hole depth will be around 20-22mm leaving plenty of scope for setting the knot to your desired depth.
