Cyclotrode X | 24mm Perihelion Hybrid Synth Brush | Glow In The Dark Retro Shave Tech!
Quality ~ Value ~ Style...a lifestyle.
Just in time for Halloween! (and beyond!!!)
Meet the Cyclotrode X, possibly, no definitely, your NEW Favorite Shaving Brush! It's just frigg'n cool!
Once more we tip our hat to the classic, Ever-Ready Lucite brushes of years past with The Cyclotrode X. We also once again tip our hat to the iconic American film serial of the 1940's, The Crimson Ghost! *Bonus points to you if you caught the reference! If you didn't, no big deal but please check out the reruns on youtube for a real throwback treat!
You see both of these classics come from the same decade and by this time you know how I roll when it comes to themes and piling up not only the value but also the related themes! Note: The Original N500 was one of the industry's early nylon brush models also! Possibly the grandfather of the modern synth knots we know and love...but truly pale in comparison. That is unless you like the feel of bundled up nylon fishing line across your face! So a real fitting tribute if you ask me!
We also felt it high time to deliver a Glow in the Dark shave brush to pair with our other Glow in the Dark releases; shave soaps, CUBE, El Fantasma Slant Razors, etc. The Cyclotrode X will really complete your next thematic SOTD I promise!
But apart from the sheer novelty of The Cyclotrode X, it's also a damn fine piece of shave tech! It feels great in the hand; substantial and durable. Oh and the 24mm Perihelion Hybrid Synth Brush is truly something special and the cherry on top! This is the same synthetic fiber knot we introduced the world to with our Doppler brush, and the same knot that inspired many a request for a 24mm version! Well Shave Cadets, HERE IT IS! (More on this below!)
An Homage to the N 500
If you have been following us for any length of time you know rebooting/reimagining classics is where we shine, um...glow. And this release is no different, but rather than go entirely Lucite looking we decided to have some fun using some Glow in the Dark effects too! I really thought it would be cool to backlight the logo. It's a really cool visual result I think fans of the brand will appreciate!
Think a revolver cylinder and an hourglass melded together in some sort of radioactive lab experiment gone awry and you get the idea. In short, I wuzzled* this one. (*my generation will catch this other obscure reference me thinks too.)
The Cyclotrode X really is a badass brush and I swear I came up with the name and logo long before the recent Twitter name change I promise! Just been waiting for October to drop it!
The 24mm Perihelion Hybrid Synth Knot
You'd be amazed at how fast synthetic fibers are evolving. With the market and demand for synthetic knots growing, the competition in quality & development will send your head spinning! This is also due to the fact that a lot of big shave giants, like Art of Shaving, are also making the switch to offering only synthetics...this is huge and forcing manufacturers to outdo each other every other month!
Fans (pun intended), of our recent synthetic knots are going to love our latest Fan/Bulb Hybrid, Perihelion Knot! Not only is it visually stunning on its own, mounted in this chunky, beefy handle of awesome, it also comes off even more visually calibrated! (yes that's a thing.)Such a cool, collectible and bitch'n piece of shave tech you are gonna absolutely LOVE!
Featuring super soft tips and a killer fiber density, providing you with some great backbone and more wispy than scritchy lathers. I know the performance will really take you by surprise! This is NOT your grandpappy's shave brush!
Phoenix Brush Aesthetics
Before any of our brushes are released they must pass a simple test aside from quality control and performance, it needs to move me. It has to appeal to something deep inside me that I really can't describe in words, that I should not need to describe in words. It must evoke this same feeling in our customers too...or what's the point?
Quality, Value and Epic Style!
Have A Safe & Happy Halloween!!!!
