The knot is 24x48 loft and I had Aldo pack it extra dense.

There might be a couple more things coming, but today these came.

I ordered the Plisson (Ebonywood,european white knot, size 12) one week ago, what service. I washed it then palm lathered some Beaver Woodright Black Beard. All I can say is...fantastic. The knot has a great feel, plenty of stiffness, but most importantly whipped up a massive lather with no scratchy feeling. I've been enjoying brushes with a bit less density, more flow.  I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's shave.

Also arrived today: three tubs of Beaver Woodright soap. The scents are all very good, and the lather it made with the Plisson was abundant, creamy and slick.

That brass handle is very cool Barry, do you think that is the same knot in both brushes?

And after a further delay due to the bad weather disrupting flights from the Isle of Man, finally, it's here. Smile

This is weired. This brush is not the one I ordered. This brush is not even featured on their sale page. The one I ordered was brass covered in Enamel with a 24 Karet gold band around it. In addition the top was supposed to screw off so you could easily replace and change Knots. The knot was supposed to be European white 3 band. The knot however, compared to my other HMWs is a 2 band HMW not a 3 band European. So I have decided to keep it and run. I paid about 100 less for this knot than I would have. Will shave with it this morning.

That's going to be the crucial test. I will shave with it today. It is a heavy brush but seems well balanced
