Johnny, this current crop of synthetics is making me consider the same thing you are doing. Mike Allen recommended a H.I.S synth that has been my daily driver lately, and I just received my Muhle hjm from Connaught last night. Looking forward to trying it. The other day Celestino had a 4th gen synth from Franks Shaving that caught my eye in the SOTD section. It's exciting to see the advancements they are making with these brushes.BTW, I hope your hand is feeling better. Biggrin

WOW! I'm surprised also. But the current crop of synthetics truly are fantastic brushes.

If I thought I'd ever need a spare WeeScot and Case I'd snatch them up. They're really nice brushes.

I have an H.I.S. synth that has too much loft to be of use. But a Napa Soap synthetic brush with unknown generation black fibers is so good it has me looking. No soak necessary, fast dry time, good backbone, super soft tips, looks like real hair. What's not to like.
