The BK8 is a wonderful luxurious brush. When I use it, I'm always surprised by its backbone. It doesn't splay out of control. Sometimes, I face lather with it with no problems. It's a big and soft brush by nature but I don't find it too floppy. Against most opinions, I don't feel it as soft as Thater, Rooney Super, Simpsons 2-band, or VL Silvertip. To me the softness is comparable to Simpsons Best and Shavemac Silvertip. The handle is very stylish and pure elegance.
