well hopefully my last brush purchase....I managed to only accrue 1 razor in 1.5 years of wetshaving! (merkur HD)
I currently use a tweezerman brush. The specs are hard to find, but I believe the knot is 20-22 mm..
What I am looking for:
I have sensitive skin and hate a brush that feels at all "prickly".
A brush with a smaller knot and possibly smaller loft than my tweezerman, probably in best badger. I only face lather; I need a brush that will work well with creams and soaps (col conk, mitchells wool fat, KMF creams, proraso cream). I am thinking just under 20mm knot and a short loft (under 45?). I am a pretty small guy so even my tweezerman is not quite as maneuverable as I would like. I would rather have a short, compact brush.
Budget- $50 or under would be great, but am willing to go $75 if this is "the one"
After reading up on B & B, I am thinking about purchasing the wee scot...just don't know if it is too small! I like the simpson line....maybe the Case or even Special 1?
any recommendations would be great!
