I'd like my next brush to be a M & F Stubby size 2. I would be open to white, disco haze, jade, or a few others.

Probably a Boar then, a Boar/Badger Mix, then a Badger.

Synthetic..I only use boar and synthetic now...about a 70/30 synthetic/boar ratio. I recently placed an order for another silvertip fibre from the UK and hope to have it in the next 7-10 days.

At this time, I think my next knot will be a synthetic. Maybe I'll find a handle and get a knot from somewhere to restore.

I've tried all the types up there except Synthetic, so I had to go with that. Those V2 Muhles are tempting especially after Teiste's lather video.

I voted badger. I've been wanting to try a TGN finest knot I just need to find a handle to put one in.

I'm all set for badger but need some new boar brushes, or rather new handles for some Omega knots.

I answered badger but I think there is a synth in my future too. I may give boar another shot but it didn't do much for me the first time.

Teiste, as a former vegan with strong sympathies in that direction, I would love to hear more about your move away from animal products. PM me if you want to talk about it. It's a way of life that still holds some appeal for me.

Exclusively badger right now with no plans to change. I tried 3 different boars from Semogue and Omega and they just didn't work for me.

Yep, the handles are what have me pondering two new ones from Bob. What fun though, right?! Biggrin

I have used only boar so far in my wet shaving journey of 3 or so months. I might be about to give some badgers a try just to see if they can help my lathering problems.

* Yes, i understand, gentlemen. Need is irrelevant sometimes, but i am trying to contain my overabundance of brushes. Well, my great excuse is that they can just go to my 12-year-old son when he gets started on this great journey, so the experimenting continues!Biggrin

It can't hurt to try. That said, I could happily use boar long-term, although it took badger brush usage to get me comfortable enough lathering that I could go back to boar and maximize its usefulness.
