Thank you, Ben.

I just ordered more Huntlee tins ... as you indicated in another thread, these are sized nicely for travel ... this is a superb soap. The Muhle STF 25 is fantastic ... the best synthetic I've encountered so far. I am awaiting a Plisson delivery ... to compare ...

This is bad news. My itch is getting almost unbearable! The 25mm has been calling my name for ages Smile

Sexy pic my friend.

Agreed. I might do the same. One of my tins was badly dented, so I need a replacement. Yes OCD in full effect! Blush

Yes, I'm awaiting my Plisson brushes too. I miss the one that is on the way to Johnny. I can't wait to see your Plisson imitation horn. I debated that one and I'm sure I'll regret not ordering it after seeing yours!

Your comparison of the two (Plisson vs Muhle) will most likely be the impetus for me to acquire the Muhle or not.

Just order one Ben. You will not be sorry. And, if you want to save some money, get the XL Edwin Jagger Synthetic. Same synthetic fiber as the Muhle for less money. HERE is where I got mine.

Ravi, I had a feeling you'd feel that way about the Muhle. The 25mm has been described by some as the primo version in the STF lineup. BTW, have you measured its loft? It doesn't appear as tall as some versions I've seen, which is a plus. (Of course now I'm kicking myself for ordering the 23mm instead of a short-lofted 25. I was afraid this might happen.)

I will also look forward to your Plisson experience. Between you, Ben, and Johnny, it feels there's a sea-change brewing in brushes around here.
