At first I didn't even consider a synthetic brush, but after much research and reviews I'm excited about this brush! Anyone already have it?

I had a couple size 23mm and didn't love it but I have tried it a few more times and it is a good brush. I think it is best to give it a really full load to help give the fibers a bit of bloom and to give it some pressure when you face lather. It helps along the jawline and chin to get the knot to spread out.

I have had the 23 and 25 mm versions, preferred the bigger one but both are really excellent brushes that can make great lather out of every soap or creme that is out there.

I had one and thought it was a very good brush but finally opted for the larger Plisson synthetics.  As mentioned above, load it up and use it either in a circular motion are paint stroke motions.  Works well either way.

I wondered about going bigger, but actually prefer a brush which isn't huge (and I have to watch the budget).

I'm using my Muhle STF 23mm tonight! One of my most used brushes. 
Enjoy It!

I had one the same size and in version 2 but I sold it. I liked it until I tried the Loccitane Plisson and I could not go back. The muhle is quite scritchy for me when face lathering and the Plisson is cloud-soft.

Muhle STF is a great brush.
Personally prefer the 25mm. Larger but significantly softer and better splay

I'm also waiting on the same size brush but in ebony. I was unsure whether to get the 23mm or 25mm as many people have said that the 25mm feels so much bigger and better compared to the 23mm but I didn't really want a massive brush and opted for the 23mm. I would like to hear your thoughts when the brush turns up. Hopefully it is the right choice!

I had one th
e same size and in version 2, and I did not sell it.  I liked it until I tried the L'Occitaine Plisson and I still liked the Mühle after using the L'Occitaine Plisson.  The Plisson is cloud-soft, and the Mühle is not scritchy on my face.  I use them both, because I have found that the Mühle works better with some soaps than the Plisson does, and the Plisson works better with some soaps than the Mühle does.

sold my Plisson after I tried a Muhle. Both are outstanding brushes and often leave my badger in the dust.

Those brushes are just great, I nearly sold all my brushes and am using it alone for at least the last six months...
I just saw the other day that even though these are synthetic brushes, the knots are hand tied... Saw a video on the Mühle website...

You made a very good choice. I have the 23mm and the 25mm. Both are very good brushes.

I have 2 Edwin Jaggers and they are fantastic.  Very easy to care for and does a great job of lathering.  Feels great on my face.
