Deciding which brush is most beautiful in my collection is not any easy task.


Handle shape, rod stock and knot all bear influence on that choice.


While certain materials such as a genuine pre-cites ivory Plisson are a stand out, other shapes such as the Simpson M7 are also incredibly beautiful. 


Finally knot banding, shape and specification adds another element of beauty that is almost best thought of as the icing on the cake.


With all that in mind, I currently favour the SIMPSON ASTOR as my most beautiful brush...

It's not a particular single element of this brush that deserves praise, but the totality of the entire brush.


The handle shape is graceful and beautiful in its simplicity. 


The faux horn captures a likeness of the natural material its modelled on, but without the need for special care. 


Finally the knot. Beautifully bulbous, strongly banded and enviable specifications.

Please share your most beautiful brush...

He didn't say that it has to be in use on a regular basis, did he?  Doubt

Brian, a die hard synth fan, posts a badger brush.

Well let's just say, that I also think badger brushes look so much better....

Synthetics don't stand a chance in this thread.........

This is hard but I guess The Jubilee has my vote. Not only is it a beauty but probably one of my best shavers as well

Lots of eye candy for sure Biggrin

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, yet there are some commonalities that all these brushes share... halfway makes me wonder if there is an archetypal "beautiful brush", same way scientists have found the archetypal female and male face of beauty.
