Very stylish handle.

It's been several years, and perhaps their knots have improved, but in the past the Men-U synthetic knots were not so great in terms of performance.

I hope they've upped their game. I won this today via Feelunique's prize draw. I was shocked to see this set retails for 76 GBP/125 USD.

Yes, the Men-U brushes have always been priced rather high, compared to the competition.

I look forward to your review of the brush ... regardless, it looks like it will photograph well!

That's a lot of money for a synthetic and "up to 20 shaves" worth of cream. Can't wait to read your review.

I received the brush kit today. Are there any tips and tricks on how to use synthetic brushes or is it the same as any other shaving brush?

Water control is the key for the new user. Water does not absorb into the fibers like naturals so you will need to modify your technique if you are accustomed to a natural brush.

1. Do not soak the brush. It is useless for synthetics.
2. If you are face lathering, have some water on the face and apply the shave stick to the face. Dip the end of the brush in a little bit of water and begin to lather. Dip the brush in a little bit more water as the lather builds until you have thick rich lather.
3. If you use soap from a puck or container, dip the end of the brush in a little bit of water rub the soap on and begin to lather. Dip the brush in a little bit more water as the lather builds until you have thick rich lather.
4. If you bowl lather, put a very small amount of water in the bottom of the bowl and dip the end of the brush in a little bit of water rub the soap on and begin to lather.

Good fortune.
