Somebody please buy these new Wiborgs!
The faux aged ivory has my name written all over it, and the turquoise is screaming my name even louder!

There's no way I can justify another two of those finest 2-bands!

Beautiful brushes, how do they perform?

If they are as good as the previous batch (every batch seems to have a new logo) they are excellent two banders!

If they have your name on them, it would be pointless for anyone else to own them. Wink

If you need permission from someone, I say Proceed!

I've had my eyes on Wiborg since they first appeared on line. Mainly the fan shape ones but all are beautiful brushes. Unfortunately the only feed back I've seen from owners is negative. But gawd are they gorgeous!

Wait a minute! That is good to hear, and bad....budgetwise.

I am of no help here as these brushes are firmly out of my price range, no matter how good they look in the pics. Cool

I have owned a Wiborg 2 Band and sold it. The quality is excellent! Just a bit more scrub than what I prefer. Otherwise a great alternative to high end 2 bands.

Granted I haven't clicked on each of the pics, but are they all giants knots?

I don't recall ever seeing a 24mm Wiborg.

I say pick one up! I'm still waiting on mine!

Good point! The more experienced I get, the more I prefer 24mm or smaller knots, except for my Rooney Heritage Stubby that is 26mm and the best brush I have by a mile. Still, I'd like it even more if it was smaller. The smallest Wibourg I've seen is 25mm, and another thing, in the many months I've been "following" the brand, it seems like they run out of a particular brush and never get/make more. But they leave it up on the site. There are some that have said "sold out" for three or four months.

My Manchurian Wiborg is 25mm but does not open out too much on the face. I would say it is about equal with a Chubby 1 at 23.5mm. So it is a good choice for those who don't like "monster" brushes.

My Wiborg 2 band is at 30mm. That is big. I haven't used it yet. It would be my biggest brush by knot diameter, but I would be surprised if it feels much bigger than my oversized Tulip 3 (27mm) in 2 band.

Mouser, I agree that Florian would be well-advised to move the "Sold!" items off the main page. Maybe a gallery of past brushes would be ideal. But mostly I give him props for photographing each brush individually. This really gives me peace of mind as a buyer.

These are beautiful brushes!!! I've checked them out for a little awhile but stopped once I decided my BIG brush would be the Chubby3 2-Band...The handle design and colors are outrageous, I just don't know enough info about their longevity and specific hair grades to pull the trigger, maybe in the future though...especially if I know more of what to expect with regards to the Manchurian and 2-Band hairHuh

I finally received my Wiborg last night. I really like it and if performs well for me. I'll have to run it through all my soaps within the next couple weeks. But so far it's great!
