So I recently picked up my first D01 2-band from Optometrist (who has written about and review this brush previously) and it showed up in the mail today. Its a Shavemac D01 2-band 28mm (with 54mm loft) using the 167 handle in Ivory. I want to thank him for giving me a good deal on it and shipping it over the pod to me here in the states. He says its been used 10 times and still has a bit of scritch so we will see tonight when I give it my first trial run. So far I'm really digging the handle feel, much better than the narrow grip band on the Chubby 2.

Sorry for the poor picture just picked it up on my lunch break and snapped a quick shot of it in the window with my Chubby 2. Think I'll give the Shavemac a run with some Leviathan tonight.

I've got a Shavemac with that same handle -- very comfortable. Keep us updated. The D01 2-band is very firm at first, but stick with it. It'll open up and soften a bit with use.

Glad to see the brush arrived safely, Phillip.
Leviathan is one of my favourite scents from Will. Just wonderful. Enjoy.

I liked Leviathan too but my wife called it "that poop soap" (she thought it smelled like poop), so it had to go.

We're in the same boat.  My wife made me choose between Leviathan her. That sucked, because I really liked her.

The 167 is my favorite Shavemac handle and that is a beauty of a brush- enjoy!

Very nice brush, congratulations.

How big is the knot in person?  I'm between 26 and 28, same loft, but trying to figure out how big the 28 feels in the face.

Thanks!

I like the 28mm size feels a lot like my chubby 2 just not as dense

Hector, to me, that 28mm knot felt somewhere between a CH2 and a CH3, size wise. The Shavemac is less dense than the Chubby 2 and splays more, as a result.
