What is the best silver tip under $100? Also which Semogue do you suggest/prefer? I have sensitive skin and I'm looking for some quality brushes.

Hard question to answer.

For less than 100 dollars you have a couple of good options , not only in silvertip :

-Whipped Dog 22 or 24 mm silvertip , which you could add a handle.Theyre very nice packed with silvertip hair , soft and good quality : http://www.whippeddog.com/products/find/brushes-knots

-Vintage Blades 22 mm finest badger.Yes , its a two band , but the tips are very soft (ultra soft) and quiet on the inexpensive side.

-Wet Shaving Products The Prince in Silvertip.Extra dense hair , soft tips and nice handle : Wet Shaving Products " The Prince" silvertip

or The Monarch in premium silvertip (ultra soft tips) : Wet Shaving Products " The Monarch" Premium Silvertip.

-The Truefitt and Hill or Rooney 1/1 or 1/2 in super silvertip.You can find both the Rooney and the Truefitt and Hill for 99 dollars and they are great brushes indeed.

-Simpson Duke 2 in best badger.Some best badger behaves like silvertip.

-shavemac finest badger : the finest badger may have darker tips than the silvertip , but its as soft and luxurious as silvertip , and also less expensive.You also have a lot of handles to choose from http://www.shavemac.com

I would like to add the New Forest Tubby 2 as being another great options. Really soft tips - almost gel like with a good backbone.

This is good advice. You could get more value for your money. Plus you can message the seller and ask questions about how soft the brush is.

+1 on the WSP Prince, both 2 and 3 band. No frills, no angels singing, just tons of lather, and very soft tips.

+1 for the Tubby 2. I own a New Forest Tubby 2 in 2-band super and a New Forest 2213 in finest Silvertip and don't hesitate recommending either one. Both are high quality brushes at very affordable prices.

Under $100, an excellent choice would be a custom Shavemac in finest badger.

http://www.shavemac.com/products/Experts...rrency=USD
- Finest badger
- 23mm knot
- 46mm loft
- Fan knot
= $99.97.

Ok, so it doesn't include shipping, but you'll have one of the finest, softest brushes on the market Cool
