($3,50 shipping included)

I hope your brush comes out ok. I ordered the same one, and mine came out good. Its super soft, and also my 1st synth. I'm quite pleased with it.

I really think its the same fiber, but i don't have a Plisson to compare. From what other people (in other forums) say about this knot, is that its similar to the TGCo knot.

I just hope you don't get one like Emanuel did... There's been some mixed experiences with this brush.

I know, it's a gamble but for the price of a stamp on a letter .....

I just got some "new" vintage C&E Sweet Almond Oil shaving cream. Unfortunately, about a third of it is missing, so I've had to file a claim for a return.

Edit: Not all eBay sellers are bad. This one refunded my original payment and told me to just keep the product.

Very much so, Rui. I only asked for one sample of the Orange/Vanilla but Michelle added more, to make up the parcel weight to the shipping cost limit. In fact, she enclosed four samples but one I already have as a tub.

If you wish, can you send it for me along with another MWS you wish to trade/sell for.

Rui, unfortunately, I've already mixed my Vanilla Sandalwood sample in with the existing tub I have. The other three samples I received have already seen use.

Thanks Ben Biggrin!

I regretted not buying one when they were more available, and I was fortunate enough to stumble on this one at Fendrihan, as it was their last one. I was completely surprised they still had one, and as soon as I saw it I didn't think twice. It is certainly unique and the density surprised me. I hope Muhle makes another run of brushes with similar attributes in the near future.

Thanks, Ravi.

I have the Muhle in Ivory, so resisted when placing the order. I feel an urge coming on though. Biggrin
