I tried it, I like it, but not enough to keep it. Biggrin

So, my almost new Muhle Silvertip fibres (Muhle 31 K 257) brush is for sale. Faux ivory handle, and in perfect shape.

Specs:

Knot: 21 mm
Loft: 52 mm
Handle Height: 47 mm
Overall Height: 99 mm

Bought from Phil - these cost $68 + shipping (new) - take this one for $62 shipped CONUS.

Oh man, so tempting as that one is in my wheelhouse. Unfortunately I've got that money set aside waiting for May 15 & the new RR soaps.

Good luck with the sale. I'd be all over this if the timing was different.

This was a tough one for me to pass up. I'm looking for that brush but am set on the faux horn handle. Too many of my brushes have the faux ivory.

Sorry it didn't work for you, Yohann. I've been pretty impressed with mine so far. Good luck!

It just didn't separate itself enough from my other synthetics. It's a fine brush, but I have others that are just like it.

Huh..from all the praising it gets here and at B&B, I thought it was a kind of revolutionary thing in synthetics. Is it just a YMMV thing?

Yep. Like everything else involved with our hobby, it is a YMMV thing. I can see no reason to keep it in my den, but a lot of other people love it.

A bump for Yohann, his brush, and a nice offer. I own the same brush and while it may not be revolutionary - it is just a brush - as has been noted in the brush forum the new fibers have significant backbone are are very efficient. I have been surprised how little product/loading can produce an abundance of lather. I am not ready to sell off my Thaters, but this brush is a keeper in my book. Biggrin
