I've been wanting a reknot for a while, but haven't been able to just yet.

I've literally heard nothing but fantastic reviews about Scott's new brushes.

I almost bought a Jefferson when I saw it in stock the other day, but stopped for a couple of reasons. First, I really wanted a Franklin. Second, I've heard reports that there's no scrub. Just dense softness. Not sure how I feel about that. I've always been under the impression a super dense knot with much backbone would provide a pleasant scrubbiness. The lack of scrub gave me pause. So looking forward to other reviews.

I too enjoy a little scrub, however, due to the gel tips and backbone, what you get is more of a massage feeling than a scrub.  I have a Jefferson and I love the face feel of the knot.  No matter how much you splay it it just doesn't get "rough" like a lot of other brushes do.  I love my Chubby 2 Manchurians, but this knot is softer and denser.  It takes a few shaves to get the lather release to optimal levels, but it really isn't an issue. And the thing has shed maybe 2 total hairs.

My Franklin has been taking a whirlwind tour of the Southern States, according to USPS tracking it is finally above the Mason Dixon line! Hopefully I'll have it in hand today and can report in on it and compare it to my other brushes.

Definitely not scrubby, but definitely a wall 'o badger. For a 24mm knot this is plenty big for me. If it were bigger I'd need half a tub of soap to load it.

I've never heard of this brand before. Your brush looks real good Chris.

I got a chuckle out of being released from the tyranny of european shaving brushes. I quite like my tyrannical european brushes thank you very much! lol Wink

The lighting of your brush makes it look very desirable. Almost a sort of cream butterscotch. Definitely don't see that on the website.

The Franklin is in the house! First impressions, this is an enormous knot and the handle is quite a bit larger than I expected, that's a good thing! I'm not sure how the heck he managed to pack the amount of hair he did into this thing, but this is absolutely stuffed with badger hair. Looks like mine is the third Franklin, the box has #3 on it and the bottom of the handle has his signature and F03 on it. Size wise it's my second largest brush behind my PL12. Just as dense as my Chubbys and the hair feel is most similar to my M&F Finest brushes, the tips are ridiculously soft but not dramatically hooked. I can not wait to put this brush to my face!

Odd... can't seem to post pictures with my IPhone anymore don't even see the option to do so...not sure why...

I just received Jefferson #11 and used it for the first time. I'm impressed. So soft and the the face feel is great. No scritch or scratch whatsoever.

It's a different beast than my brush with a Franklin knot. It's not as "wall of badger" but still plenty dense.

Have a Washington reknot:

It's phenomenal. Dense as hell, excellent backbone, super soft tips. $99 for this knot is a steal.

Love the shape of that knot.  It's definitely not straightup fan - I like leaning a bit toward a hybrid.

I'm intrigued.  Sadly they're all out of stock at the moment or I'd have one on order.
I'll have to find a handle for him to reknot in order to try one I guess. Wink

That's a very cool setup you have there. All those products look great together.

The knots look and sound (from posted comments) amazing. I love the handle shapes, especially the Jefferson. I'm not crazy about the color. The handle looks a little plain. I'm just thinking the handle would look better with some writing on the side. Maybe "Jefferson" or something in black text to give some contrast.

Anyway, my interest is piqued.

My Washington was fantastic last night during it's fourth use. Whipped up plenty of lather and felt great.  There is enough back bone to be able to dig in a bit without the hint of scritch. The handle color may be a bit plain but the weight, density and texture are all excellent.

I think they were all available as I had two sizes in my cart. When I went to checkout the Franklin was removed as it was sold out. I guess the Washington will hold me over for a little while.
