My new brush arrived yesterday.

It's a Kent BLK12 and it's massive.

It's by far the biggest brush I've ever seen (I know that there are a few bigger ones out there), but this brush is as much as I can comfortably handle.

I've only had chance to do a test lather with it so far and will give it a whirl tomorrow for the first time.

It feels very soft and seems to be quite floppy so it will be good to see how it performs.

Here's a picture of it next to my PJ2 and Tulip 3:

That thing is a monster, but a luxurious monster I'm sure. Enjoy it in good health and I look forward to hearing how it works for you.

Yeah, that's huge. Did you check it for a pulse? LOL
The handle looks comfortable, very nice brush. I'd like a Kent, but the moths in my wallet just shake their little heads at me.

I had a BK12 but finally sold it as it was just to large for me. It was a soft luxurious brush and worked quite well with creams.

Ahh...The BK12...like shaving with the whole Badger's tail....You'll go through a ton of cream with that "big fella"!

Enjoy it!

I think using the brush is the most luxurious part of the shave. Find what you enjoy the most and lather up. That's something that I think more would use if they would try it.

I had a BLK 12 for a short time, but it was too much of a beast for me. But for the most luxurious brush I've ever used? It took the cake easily. I found a BLK 8 to be a great alternative to the BLK 12, but I admit, I still toy with the idea of getting one again here and there. I just chalk it up to one of those unreasonable moments. Biggrin

Andy,

A great looking brush. I owned a BK12 once and truly enjoyed how it was a true monster on whipping up a lather with creams. Such a huge brush that I could cover my face after about four passes.

Enjoy the brush!
