This brush handle is big and heavy. Maybe a little tooo big and heavy.  I just got it in today from Connaught along with the 500 ml tube of Proraso. Haven't used it yet but am wishing I had got the EJ87. EJ even makes a bigger, heavier handle, the EJ10 Deluxe. I guess the length is okay but it is a club, very heavy.  Just a heads up if anyone is thinking of ordering one. Too wide for my Muhle plastic travel tube also. If anyone would like to sw[Image: BvGSliO.jpg][Image: AtGpBie.jpg][Image: LT4aDyl.jpg][Image: rA90sC7.jpg][Image: oojLu0Z.jpg]

Wow! That does look to be a monster! I have the EJ28 XL and love both the brush and handle. The EJ28 XL is also a perfect fit for the Muhle travel tube--but nothing larger would fit.

Excellent advise!

I was already neglecting the weight as I looked at it.  It pays off being a member here!

Looking on Connaught's site it lists the EJ10 tall, my brush, at 118 grams. I guess it didn't ring a bell when ordering it. I have had some tall Persian shaped brushes before, but made out of wood and not nearly as heavy.

That is a nice looking brush. I already have a Muhle STF XL but I am tempted to buy one like this.

Used the EJ10 for the first time this morning and I like it.  Didn't seem too big or heavy after all. Fits quite nicely in the hand and works well bowl lathering and applying the lather to my head and face. Prior to the I have been using the L'Occitane Synthetic exclusively and would be hard pressed to prefer one knot over the other. The knots are different but both are top notch performers.
I may order the XL EJ28 or 87 soon just to compare the handle to the EJ10 and see which I like better. I'm leaning towards the 28 but haven't decided yet. So many choices in handles compared to the Muhle and cheaper besides. Blush
