The faux marble handle is RESIN, and imitates the look of marble. This is the second batch of these handles, hence the v2.
This is my second synthetic brush from AP Shave Co. and it did not disappoint! I've been very happy with my SynBad knot, but wanted to try something with a bit more splay and the 2BED certainly delivers. I tend to face lather and the balance between splay and backbone of the 2BED makes it well suited for that. I've been consistently impressed with the quality of the knot, and the imitation badger combined with the cream marble handle also make for a truly nice looking brush.
