The damage was done years ago.

The birth of the industrial revolution was in Britain, and the government - when in the EU mind you - dismantled it to almost nothing, the largest manufacturing solid economy for exporting is left in Scotland where the largest concentration of steel workers are. And just a few months ago was on the verge of shutting down.

Britain is done, London and tourism will be it's saving grace keeping it alive. They have absolutely nothing to add to the world in a sense of goods. My girlfriends family LEFT the UK because of how fragile the state of the nation was.
People were on a one track mind when they voted to leave, and that was xenophobia.

Ironic isn't it. Newcastle voted to remain.

A sad day for all. None of my British friends think leaving is a good idea.
In fact,
I'm proud to say that all the Brits i know and work with think leaving is a bad idea.

Sure...I got mine on Amazon, but I think if you order direct it's fulfilled from the UK:

Kent Men's Combs

They also have women's brushes and an entire assortment of beard brushes too. From their "about" page:



G B Kent & Sons Ltd, manufacturers of brushes since the eighteenth century is one of the oldest established companies in Great Britain Kent Brushes (as they are now more commonly known) was founded in 1777 by William Kent in the reign of George III. Kent holds a pre-eminent place in the history of brush making, with an unbroken record of excellence in the quality of its production which has been recognised by the granting of Royal Warrants for nine reigns.

...

The company continues to retain the craftsmanship and unprecedented quality that is Kent's reputation. Even in today's fast moving, mass-produced assembly, Kent are proud to still be manufacturing many of their original brushes by hand.

Nevertheless, Kent Brushes is committed to developing and enhancing its products with every step they take. Kent harness the latest hi-tech manufacturing processes, whilst building on the time-honoured traditional methods to create the world's finest example of each and every brush that leaves their factory.

About

They also carry a Royal Warrant or Appointment:



Royal warrants of appointment have been issued for centuries to those who supply goods or services to a royal court or certain royal personages. The warrant enables the supplier to advertise the fact that they supply to the royal family, so lending prestige to the supplier. In the United Kingdom, grants are currently made by the three most senior members of the British Royal Family to companies or tradesmen who supply goods and services to individuals in the family.

Wikipedia

They hand sand the combs so there aren't any sharp edges and your hair doesn't snag. Seriously, they're pretty awesome. I have a small pocket one and a larger one. The larger one I have is the A 2T.

Very rare that I actually suggest or find a product that lives up to its reputation.

I know. I'll buy some spotted dick and order some black and white pudding. Love me some black pudding and rashers. I know I know, that's Irish, but I'll see if I can order some British pudding anyways.
