Acquisitions Monday June 26th - Sunday July 2nd
Got my 25mm Superior Brushes Super Badger brush today ( I also feel like I've been physically violated by Customs yet again, God I hate those *******'s!)
In light of Joel's comments about the brush I was somewhat apprehensive about receiving it, but like everyone here always says YMMV.
With regards to the handle, it is, simply put, absolutely stunning. Very heavy, yet much more well balanced than any other brush I have held. The bristles are very densely packed, more so than my Simpsons Persian Jar (although truth be told I am so nervous after my initial run of bad luck with brushes, that I haven't had the PJ out of it's box for more than a couple of seconds) the bristles are slightly less robust than the Simpsons bristles, but for me that is a good thing as I prefer a softer brush. I think the combination of densely packed but thinner bristles will be ideal for me.
Pictures when I figure out photoshop ( I can actually work my camera now, but getting the pictures from my album to the site is going to be the big hurdle.)
Obviously, the real test will come when I start to use the brush properly so I reserve judgement until then, but if the level performance is anywhere near as good as the look then I will be happy. Whatever happens, it is the perfect eye candy for a wet shaver.
