So I find myself considering a new brush. I have a few in my rotation (shavemac 177, Colonel X2L, Semogue 1305, and a Omega).
I generally use the Semogue and the Omega for soaps, the 177 for creams and the X2L for both. The X2L is my favorite.
This time I am interested in something with fairly long total length (I am a committed bowl latherer), I also hope to find a brush that is relatively soft (i.e. close to the feel of the X2L), but a bit more dense with a knot around 23/23. Not interested in a floppy brush or scratchy brush at all.
The leading contender is the Duke 3 but I would be happy for any suggestions/recommendations.
Thanks in advance B&B!
