Here they are in all their beauty...

H4 2 Band 22/48mm Bulb
X3 2 Band 24/48mm Bulb
D3 Manchurian 24/47mm Fan

Beautiful handles... just palm lathered them and the 2 bands are as soft as ever! I am sure the X3 will grow into my favorite's list: the handle is perfect to hold.

The D3 Manchurian is VERY densely packed. Palm feel is not much different to the 2 Band. The face lathering test will tell... will report back on the Manchurian...

Excellent.

That Manchurian is a really nice handle.

I have similar material in another handle and pictures really do not do justice to how they look in person.

Enjoy!

Great brushes. Did you have them put the "I" in lowercase like that? Or did they do that on their own? Personally, that would bother me. However, they are nice brushes.

The typeface was the first thing I noticed, apart from the beautiful brushes.
Luckily the Duke looks normal Biggrin

Excellent. I prefer the Duke 3 but that H4 is appealing.

Hi

Three (very) beautiful shaving brushes Clap

I really! like the classical shape and gorgeous (generous) curves of the Harvard handle, simply stunning!

Take care, Mike
