G'day Nookies,


Today I received two brushes from classicshop2012 via eBay online, on the left is the Maseto Extra Density 2 Band Finest Badger 24/54mm knot and on the right is the Maseto 2 Band Finest Badger Horn 30/54mm knot see 2 image below. I give these brushes below a real good clean before I used the brush.

For some reason the 24/54mm bloom of the Extra Density 2 Band Finest Badger looks better than the 30mm on the right, I can see the 2 Band Finest Badger Horn 30/54mm knot doesn't have enough bloom and splay to allow enough flow through when face lathering. Anybody owned a Maseto Extra Density 2 Band Finest and a Maseto 2 Band Finest 30mm knot, which brush do you like best that suit you because I'm interested in you're feedback... Cheers  Thumbsup

I have two MS 30mm (actually 33mm) and two 30mm extra dense knots (actually 32mm) and I much prefer them to the 24mm and 26mm ones I had as I much prefer larger knots, these days. I have never had much of an issue with flow-through as I adjust my technique to get the lather I want from my brushes. These larger knots have never given me any issues when lathering. Smile

Good luck with the brushes.

I had a 26mm extra density that featured good flow-through, but didn’t soften up enough for my tastes. Good brushes for the price, but when folks pitch them as ‘chubby killers’ I sit back and chuckle; as I know better.

mike_the_kraken I don't have a 26mm extra density, I have a 26mm Stirling Finest Badger see below 2 image FYI. I would love to see a Maseto 26mm Extra Density 2 Band Finest Badger on the market.

When you can buy 7 Maseto for the price of 1 Simpson....
Do I even need to finish this sentence?

I totally agree.  After owning a Maseto, I'll never buy another Simpson.
