I just received this incredible Saponifico Varesino 26mm HMW brush. I can't say enough about this brush which goes right up there with my favorite Simpson ,Wiborg and Shavemac. The knot has just the right amount of backbone and the tips wonderfully soft. The perfect combination for either face or Bowl lathering.. Alessandro was wonderful doing business with and the brush shipped on Monday from Italy and I received it in the United States in two days on Wednesday.. I certainly did not need another brush but I am so glad that I bought this one. With this price and quality it can't be beat..

Yes that 30 mm looks beautiful and should be another great one

That looks really nice, those knots are some of the nicest looking ones around IMHO and they look very consistent as well.

Fantastic Brush; great acquisition! Mine gets better and better every time I use it and I'm contemplating getting a second soon to put in rotation just because it's the only brush I've wanted to use lately!

You might want to add the 30 mm it's coming out very soon

I'm waiting for that 30mm, my "26mm" measures 29mm coming out of the handle if the 30mm follows suit it should be a 33mm monster!

These brushes are just beautiful, and very nice pic! I've got one in Cocobolo, and I agree with you gentlemen that it's a fantastic performer.

And I noticed the same thing: They measure larger than the published measurements. I'm not complaining! I didn't hear about the 30mm brush. Is it on their site yet? That should be a monster, and think I already want one!

Also thumbs up on Alessandro: What a great fellow to deal with. I've ordered directly from SV in Italy several times, and they've been unfailingly helpful.
