Very nice looking brush and yes I think it qualifies as something completely different.

If only knot was 25 mm or larger, I would consider buying this......

You are correct.

Let me rephrase: "If only it was 25 mm knot and 2-band badger hair"  Wink

Thanks. The last shave there was only one small curly hair that shed. I'm hopeful that it's almost finished.

Arrived today. On spec: 23/53mm knot.


The handle is truly beautiful and VERY heavy!

The knot is a Mühle 3 Band knot: soft tips, medium to light density, relatively high loft and thus - as to be expected - quite floppy!

Definitely more for the bowl lathering, cream using crowd. Not that you cannot use her for triple milled soaps and face lathering, but probably not the ideal use.

But as I said - to be expected.

I will give her a run tomorrow morning and provide a face lathering soap update...   Biggrin

Great sharing of information, Georg  Thumbup

I take that Vie Long over the Mühle any day, though.

I almost sold my Vie Long, similar to yours, a week ago.

Only honest advice from an honoured member in here, made me realize I was about to make a mistake.

But love the handle on that Mühle, it looks exquisite.

It looks splendid! And as stated no surprise as to its characteristics. Can't wait for mine.
