What is Acetate? Is that different than their normal resin handles?

Is that fiber similar to the one used in the Plisson brushes? Huh

I believe it is the same as used on the Plisson Cade brushes that were selling for $55.00 not to long ago.

Made by Plisson, same as Plisson (size 12, Plisson synthetic), rebranded "The House of Barber", better price, moulded as opposed to turned, acetate and resin are much the same.

Boy, they have some luscious brushes! Thanks for the link.

Update: Interesting: the price was €45 but dropped after I entered my shipping address in the US; but the checkout is all French: they didn't go for English there. Smile Still, I made it through, and thanks again.

Thanks for sharing the link. Out of curiosity, did anyone else read the brush description closely? I like a soft brush with emulsifying power, but was entirely clueless that I should have been looking for nervousness too.

I think it just means that it will help aggitate the lather get it to whip up. If I am reading the Italian forums, I see words like charging when they refer to loading the brush so maybe it is just something lost in translation.

Agreed it was a translation issue. However you want to describe it - nervousness, agitation, awesomeness - I agree my Plisson has the characteristic. I am glad my friend convinced me to give one a try.

I had the same handle with pure badger hair.It was very common to find 'La Maison du Barbier" in French supermarkets like Auchan , not too long ago.In fact the shaving soap was the same than the Plisson one , as well as the shaving cream.This brush looks gorgeous with the synthetic fibre on it.

You really can't beat the price of these. The Plisson Cade was a nice deal for $55.00 but now this is even better. The total price after shipping charges is only $40.00.  And the brush looks really nice. This is what I ordered:

Mr. Johnny Sir! Which Plissons are those? I can't find them on the Plisson website. Similar handled ones have a different "blocky" logo.

Well, it appears they no longer have the ivory and ebony brushes like mine. Just the tortoise and a few others. Darn them.

That's a shame. 

The latest incarnation represents a much better investment, but I'm glad I secured a pair like Johnny's.
