Ok, here's my situation. After 4+ decades of pin-balling around different methods of shaving, from electric shavers to bazillion-bladed razors, I've returned to my roots. I'm back to shaving with my old (kind of like me) Gillette Tech. Occasionally, I'll use other old safety razors as well. Trouble is, my shaving brush doesn't match the feel and precision of my blades and razors. My old Ever-Ready BP 500 shaving brush is too soft, and the synthetic Burma Shave brush that my wife gave me for my last birthday is too hard. I guess I'm sounding like Goldilocks wanting something "just right". I like my grandfather's old Rubberset 200-4, but it wanders all over my face, feeling like I'm lathering with my high school girlfriend's ponytail. Please, some suggestions for a better brush! BTW, I'm willing to spend $25 to $75 - ok, maybe more - for a brush that will be reasonably stiff (without being abrasive) for precision, with good lather and moisture transference, and durable (though not too much so since I am, after all, 60 yrs old this year and have had 4 strokes).
