I should start this off by saying This brush is a very sexy looking brush . The handle has some great curves and fits very nice in my hands . That being said I think this brush is pretty floppy and will not be added to my rotation any time soon . I have given this brush to my wife and she loves the way it looks but says "it is way to soft" I agree whole heartedly .
I have used it for the past couple of days to see if my opinion on it would change but sadly it has not . the brush is way to floppy . it takes some time and work to get a good lather from it .
a few things about this brush the handle is blond horn and the knot size is 26mm . the brush is pricey at $289.99 plus shipping . I would say for the money you can spend much less and get a far better brush then this one .
check out the bloom on this baby it is just shy of 4 inches
A little comparison next to a $35 C&E brush on the left and an AOS $100 brush on the right
The set up
Thiers Issard brush , Speick cream , Large scuttle from Sara
almond size amount of Speick
And the work begins
after about 35 seconds of work
another minutes or so
the end result after about 2 minutes of work
This is a really nice looking brush and if you like floppy brushes this is an ideal brush for you . personally I prefer a brush that does not have so much give to it and that will be a little more scruffy . Based on looks alone this brush is incredible based on the way it performs I would rather stick to my $35 C&E brush any day .
