I have received this cute,little,shaving brush today and it is what I was expecting,a shaving brush really close to the Omega 631 silvertip,the first quality shaving brush I bought when I was 18 years old.
This brush is the small one and has a knot of 19 mm and its loft its around 48 mm.I do have a silvertip fibre brush,which has the same specs and I do truly like it for facelathering with it.
The handle has a classic style,and while its not as heavy as a Simpson handle,its close enough.
I like that it shines,so its kind of a glossy black,instead of a matte black.As I said,pretty stylish and classy.
Its hair density is there,not too overly dense,but either "bold".This silvertip hair has white tips and also a very good flow,something I was looking for too.The backbone is there,since its loft is kind of low,but I was looking more the "flow' than the firm backbone this time,and it seems I got it right.
This brush seems to shine with facelathering,and I did used it today with a triple milled shaving soap (Geo F Trumper Violet tallow version) with no problems at all when I had to loaded it with the soap.In the face feels soft,and its good flow makes face lathering with it a good experience overall.
I will compare it with the Silvertip Fibres S and make a post about it.Its gonna be interesting.

Well done Teiste! I can't wait to read more about this brush and comparisons because I'm interested in buying Muhle silvertip soon. I just don't know which size of knot to choose - 19 or 21mm. I saw a review at Foro Afeitado but I don't know spanish I wish it was a version in english somewhere. Anyway, thanks for your fantastic work and keep going!
