The Peregrino - 24mm Roswell (grey) Hybrid Synth Brush - Retro Shave Tech!
Peregrino: a person who journeys to a sacred place for religious reasons.
"The PAA Peregrino brush is a lather monster..." ~ Mantic 59, The Sharpologist
However, unlike the Atomic Rocket's 26mm knot I opted for a 24mm hybrid (Fan/Bulb), in the end and it wasn't a tough call, it really just felt right. This was after experimenting with over 10 different synthetic makes, sizes and models! Seriously, there was a real harmony and balance to this combination. You will experience what I mean as soon as you give this baby a whirl I promise!
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?
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 out do each other every other month!
Not only that but you need not worry about "babying" these knots as one does with animal hair! That alone makes them great brushes to take anywhere with you! Tougher, softer and lightyears more affordable than their analog counterparts; animal hair.
So with those thoughts in mind, we came up with The Roswell (Grey) Hybrid Synth, something REALLY special. The feel is pretty much a combination of our Suave & Tribble knots.
A Shave Peregrino
Lastly, we get to the name. Peregrino is Spanish for Pilgrim. Many of you know by now we select our product names with much thought and care, The Peregrino sticks to the script in this regard truer than most. As I cryptically hinted at where this sales page began, I believe we are all Peregrinos or Pilgrims on this sacred, traditional wet shaving road, paved with lather and probably lined with aging Burma Shave signs.
Just like pilgrims on a holy trek it is always our own experience, no one else's and no one can take that away from us or define it in absolutes. This parallel is seen everyday in the many groups and forums we participate in by the constant mic drop phrase, Your Mileage May Vary. We often compare traditional shaving to ritual and ceremony, which no doubt it is in an obvious kind of way, but might I say it is even more; a great, epic, daily journey or quest. And with every passing new day we get closer to somewhere that really doesn't matter. What really matters and where the real joy is found and felt, is the act of the journey itself.
The design on the bottom of the handle is not only the sun rising or a scallop shell (symbol of the pilgrim), but also a visual representation of all the different paths one can take to get to the same destination. Enjoy the journey my friends!
Buen Camino to my fellow Peregrinos!
