I am not new to wet shaving but I am new into the artisan world and taking my morning shave routine more seriously thanks to this forum and seeing shave of the day's on IG. I saw a brush on instagram (Brush Craft) about two weeks ago and it was love at first sight and I knew I had to have it; Long story short it wasn't listed on the site for sale anymore and as fate would have it I was able to get it after contacting the artisan! I got the brush this past Thursday and could not be more excited. Its a Black Water Buffalo Horn and Stainless Steel with a 24mm Silvertip Badger knot soft with nice backbone, it's weight whips up a great lather all while feeling wonderful in hand. Enough rambling:

Welcome to TSN.  Congratulations on a very nice and unique brush.  I've never seen horn and stainless combined in one brush.  Please let us have your thoughts on what looks like a nice knot..

Small update; After using it for about 5-6 shaves since I got it (I don't have to shave every day), I feel like I have almost figured how to get the results I am looking for. It being the nicest knot I've ever had I am blown away by it's performance and will be able to give a better review of it once I can get a baseline for a few shaves! I will say the handle feels perfect in the hand with a nice weight to it, but because of this the knot would be slightly better for this setup if it had a little bit more backbone since I bowl lather.



Thanks for all the kind words everyone, cheers Cheers
