Does the Duke 3 really have that much better than the Commodore?

The main difference are the handles tbh.

They're both really great brushes with knots that are very similar.

You can't go wrong with either IMHO.

I have the Commodore 2 and enjoy the handle good enough. I would like to go up into the next knot size. I would like to have the Duke style handle since I have the Commodore, but not for the price. I have seen the Duke on selling and trading, but would buy new for the price and protection from getting a shedder.

The Duke is more dense compared to the Commodore.

I was looking for this info, I would hope it would have been. I may have to look into the Duke even though it isa bit more.

I must have struck lucky when I got my X3 as the density of the knot in it is virtually identical to the density of the three Duke 3's I own.

That is the thing about hand made brushes, you just never know. Although, I believe they pack the knot based on total weight of hair, so you wouldn't think there would be variance in that aspect.

Well if I had a bit more funds looks like it would have been a good time to pull the trigger. Another one just popped up.

I had a Commodore x2 that was denser than my Duke 2. It was the scrubbiest brush I ever used until I got a Shavemac D01 two band. The X2 was deffinetly an outlier.

I think the duke 2 looks a bit small in pictures, for the money I do not see it. What I mean is I would buy the Commodore all day. I would like to try a Duke,but the price kills the deal for me. Thanks guys for the info.

I love my Duke 3 brushes (I have more than one), I've never owned a Commodore. I would have thought the Duke might be denser...

I have both and the D3 is more dense than the X3 even though not by a great margin.
