By request, I took these photos before leaving for yet another 12-14 hour workday, my colleague is sick at the moment, so have to work 12-14 hour shifts 5 days in a row, because the rest are on vacation at the moment  Dodgy

I will post photos of 2 brushes every second week, to make it easier for me - and I will get back and post a small review of each brush.

First post here I will shwocase my travel brush.
I'm very fickle, so what I enjoy one week, I might not the next week - this is just how I am, so take my opinions with a grain of salt, please  Biggrin 

I have tried really really hard to like synthetic brushes, especially for travelling - but I have bought and sold 15-20 higher priced synthetics, and all are gone now.
It's to a point now where I don't take opinions of other shavers seriously, when they talk positively about a synthetic brush.
Not that I doubt their opinions are expression of how they really feel, I just know 99% surely the brush will not work for me, even though they might feel the brush is excellent.
For me it will feel like crap, at best......

Therefore my travel brush has to a badger brush.
I have been testing out several badgers and think this could might be one I hold on to.....for a week or two  Tongue 

It is the smallest brush in my badger collection, it has backbone, while still feeling soft at the tips. It's a hybrid fan-bulb and it's nice for face lathering.
It dries within 18-20 hours. It's relatively compact.


My travel brush is the Simpson Duke 3 Best in Faux ivory

I face lather 100/100 times, sold all my bowls and scuttles. All my brushes are bought with face lathering in mind.

I use a Plisson Paladium Fusion as my travel razor - it's a hefty long 102 gram handle, but just feel and shaves so nicely.
Feels so nice in the hand - great razor.

Agreed. However, rather than piece meal, why not start with a family shot then drill down? That would be a great shot based on your posts.

Thanks guys
I would ruin it by just taking an overhead shot of them all.
Sort of like taking a picture of 25 sports cars from the top........
You want to admire one or two at a time

As said before, I used to own 100+ badgers from $125-$600 in price.
Trimmed it down to my personal favourites, 25-26 badgers in total.

Claus, 25-26 brushes? This is getting down to a very reasonable number. I don't know what to make of this!!?!?! Certainly you plan to purchase 25-30 additional premium brushes in the next few months?? Biggrin
