New Forest High Mountain Two Band 2402

Another great all rounder for use with soaps and creams and for face or bowl lathering. The brush has a firm backbone and soft tips. The polyester resin handles are shaped by hand tools on a lathe. The 24mm knot has a loft of 52mm and the alternative ivory handle is 50mm high.

The price of this brush is £46 including worldwide shipping.

  1. The three brushes Tubby 1, 2403, and 2402 seem to have the same 24mm knot, each with a 52mm loft. Does this mean they will all perform the same, and differ only in the shape of the handle? Thanks!

  2. Crisis! The 2402 or the 2403? And don't say both, Peter.....

  3. The 2403 handle is 10mm or 20% taller than the 2402 and the 2204. Another factor?

  4. This brush is a total winner. I selected my least best perfoming soap. Wow! that Cella became a wild beast, I nearly drowned, suds everywhere, Father Christmas job offers, Complaints from the wife! etc etc.
    Lovely thick creamy lather and yes, I absolutey now understand the painting foam on analogy. Unfortunately due to my brush rotation and the fabulously robust build, I'll probably never have to buy another, which is a massive shame because Fido's attention for his customers is as faultless as his attention to detail on his wares.
    I am now fortunate enough to have 4 New Forest brushes, each has a personality of it's own and an ability to make shaving fun.

    I would class this as the must buy for everyone who face lathers and a proper alternative to the minimally cheaper alternatives from bigger brands.
    As always there is room for improvement, great handle shape, tedious colour.

    Fido, I found some funky rainbow alpolina on t'google.....just throwing it out there ;-)

    limited run of them in 1902 to test the water?
    pretty please with a cherry on top?

  5. Thanks for the feedback. We are not keen on many of the brighter and mixed colours. Tigris Perla sells well but it is in short supply. We will have some brushes in tortoiseshell and horn soon. And we don't rule out anything in the future.
