So I picked up one of these on a lark. Truthfully, I just liked the handle. It's a Butterscotch Portland. While I still like the handle, I have to say, these things suck. They seem to get a lot of love around here, but I'm not feeling it. The knot is set slightly off, a little angle. Knot isn't very dense, and the loft is just ridiculously stupid. Was it cheap? Well, 30 bucks shipped. Is it maybe that lot's of new shavers buy them since they are affordable and do not have a lot to compare it to? For the record, I have used various boars, the B&B brush with the frosted handle, small M&F, Omega Silvertips, Omega Pure, and TGN Grade A Silvertip, and lot's of TGN Finest in handles I have restored. Restores are probably my favorites after the M&F. I will probably replace the knot with a TGN, and set it properly after polishing off the Logo.
