Beautiful pinkish/yellow hue in person doesn't photograph. Arrived today and got it's maiden voyage in a ten second swirl of MdC Fougere. A very nice brush. Celebrated by purchasing a Victorian era Barbershop Numbered "Guest" mug from 1900.

Slightly different from the Duke 3 I had...The Duke was a 23mm knot and loft on it was 46mm

Looks like it would be an excellent bowl lathering brush, and accurate when applying the lather to the face.

Funny enough, my recently arrived D3 has different specs: the knot is 25,34mm and the loft is 52,22mm, which is a considerable difference from the loft on yours.

You were thinking that its a great-looking brush! I've always been intrigued by the Victorian. Such a unique handle and with an incredible knot.

Exactly. Despite having never tried the Victorian, it is a gorgeous brush, I'm quite sure you won't regret buying it but, if by any chance you do, I suspect you'll have no trouble getting rid of it. Smile
