How floppy is it? Is it approaching Vulfix territory? Those are the floppiest brushes that I can think of off the top of my head. I have never tried a Muhle.

Sorry to hear that the weight is too much for you, Ben. Hope you find a Retro LE again.

I don't care for floppy brushes, but I imagine there is a big market for them because they are soft.  While us brush aficionados may generally look for backbone and scrub, I think many shavers out there are quite happy with brushes we consider floppy.  I used to have a Vulfix 41 in both Super and Silvertip and they were excellent brushes.  I wouldn't go as far as calling them floppy, but the Vulfix 2236 clearly qualifies as floppy.  I imagine this Muhle knot, like the Vulfix 41, has excellent flow and excels at bowl lathering with a cream.

It's what most would refer to as floppy in terms of backbone, but its a quality brush...

Sounds pretty much like the knot in the Muhle Retro I have.

That might not be a bad thing. The bloom on the Retro knot is huge.

Yes this version is more manageable or user friendly.

Anyone using their Muhle Anniversary brush? Mine got boxed up and I pretty much forgot about it. Thinking about taking it for a spin.

I chose the silvertip fibre version. Heavy, indeed.
Good synthetic brush.

You don’t find it a bit too springy in the 23 mm knot ?

I prefer the 25 mm knot, as that has a better balance between being too springy and too floppy.
Unfortunately they did not make the 25 mm in this anniversary edition.

Agreed, 25mm silvertip fibre is better.
