In 2008 Badger & Blade issued a Limited Edition that was made by Kent. The knot is far denser that the Kent norm and feels much like my Simpson AS4.Polo 8.
The BK 2 is the same size as the BK or BLK 4 but has a Pure Badger knot.
Kents modern Silvertip line is the BK or BLK 12, 8 & 6. BK handles are Ivory colored and BLK black.
Kents modern H series brushes have striped handles and Pure Badger knots. An H12 is on the left, a H8 on right.
This is an earlier Kent M6C with a Catalin handle.
Kent sold the V8 series from the 1960s through until the 1990s. This is a late V8, likely from the 1980s.
Kent also makes Boar and today even synthetic bristle brushes. This is an older wood handled VS80 boar. The current VS80 handles are a different shape.
A prior owner of this brush was told by Kent that it was made in 1923. For almost a hundred years it has been patiently waiting to get used for the first time and finally it will get it's chance to show why it was created.
Likely a 1950s to 1960s Kent Pure Badger
Here is the whole family together so that you can see relative sizes.
