Picked one up from ebay some days ago. A small mistake, didn't mean to bid on it but I did. Great brush, in Best, and I'd probably think better of it if it was a 1 instead of a 2. Feels great in my hand, (again, a 1 would be a better fit) lathers great and feels awesome on my face. But it's a distant second to my Rooney Heritage Stubby. Look for it soon on the for sale board. If it was a Chubby 1 I'd keep it.

I am considering if this line might work on the wife? Would it be dangerous if I used it before, and she remembers when I do not?

Sorry to hear of your error but you should be able to fully recover from it.

Oh, it's very good, it's just too big for me. A Chubby 1 would be a keeper, still a second to my Stubby, be a keeper. I don't understand why there's such a big jump in size from a 1 to a 2 and hardly any difference up to a 3.

Believe me - there is also quite a jump in size from 2 to a 3.

There is quite a substantial difference as "Claus" stated.........

I have them all (1) is 23.81mm Knot,Loft is 47.41mm (2) is 29.46mm Knot, Loft is 48.44mm (3) is 31.23mm Knot,Loft is 55.18mm.

Don't be too hasty on the Chubby 2, leave it for a while..... If you read some reviews by members after a short while they slip into larger knot brushes.

Very wise words Charles.

My first Chubby was a 2 and it took a good number of runs to warm up to what seemed to be a monstrous brush. Then I moved to a Chubby 3 two band. There was an adjustment period when I was apprehensive that I made a significant mistake in getting the Chubby 2. Such advise as yours is spot on.

I love my chubby 2 in 2 band, it's a lovely soft dense monster. Don't give up on it yet.

+1 The Cubby 2 is one of the best brushes you will ever use, in my opinion! It may seem large, but give it a few weeks and then revisit the smaller brushes! You may be very surprised!Biggrin

Out of curiosity what's the loft on those? I think mine looks quite a bit higher.
