Just saw these go up on the Executive Shaving Company website and thought i'd let you guys know, the 30mm knot intrigues me. Not sure if they are they same fibers as the ones used in the Chubby 2 synthetics, they look a bit different.

Thanks Andy, they look good. Not sure on the fibres as well.

I have one of their travel faux horn turnback synthetic brushes. Great design, but don't think they are same silvertip fibres as the Muhle.

I like the handles on these synthetics.  I'd like to know if it's the same fiber as in the Chubby 2 synthetic.  These are set to a higher loft, which would make them appeal to those who feel the loft on the Chubby 2 is too low.

The 30mm is a nice looking brush. I'm not sure that I like a 60mm loft, though. I'd order one if it were around 55mm.

Yea, I would prefer it to be around the 55mm area as well but with the 60mm loft I'd assume it would splay well.

That's interesting i thought that they looked a bit different, so it's good to know they're a completely different fibre.

Mark, since you've opened Pandora's box you must elaborate.

I like a bit of backbone myself but picked up a WD 30mm and had the knot set at 65mm loft- works like a champ and I am pleasantly surprised. 

Great performance, plenty of backbone but still splays on face lathering. Lathers like a shorter lofted brush (I have not measured the glue bump to determine effective loft).

Not apples to apples but for reference...

Now that Mark has spoken we know the fibers are not the same as the Simpson.  I emailed Executive Shaving with the question and promptly received the following response:

 Dear Ricardo,


According to the guy who owns Simpsons / Vulfix, the fibre hairs used on the Chubby and the new Vulfix brushes are “completely different”.


Best wishes,

 Brian Mulreany

Does anyone know of any US vendors carrying these?  The Chubby 2 is my preferred synthetic, so this new Vulfix is definitely a synthetic I want to try.  I'll order it from Executive Shaving if necessary, as I was pleased with the quick response to my inquiry.

CH2 SYN = £78 inc VAT (UK) plus delivery
Vulfix Large SYN = £40 inc VAT (UK) plus delivery

There must be a reason for the premium on the CH2?

I owned a CH2S and I currently have a Classic 1 SYN.  They have the softest tips of any brush I've used and I would still have the CH2S if it required less force to splay.  The Vulfix L is a bigger knot than the CH2S, there must be a good reason for the lower price so before I send even more of my money to the IOM, how does the Vulfix brush differ?  Ideally what I 'think' I'd really like is a D3S with a 50mm loft, if the Vulfix M performs like I think a D3S would perform I'll get one...

I assume the higher price of the chubby is probably due to the handle, I don't own a Chubby synthetic but it's engraved isn't it? That could probably Contribute to the higher cost and what not, also the chubby probably has more hair packed in it, but these are just wild guesses.
