Brad recently made me this Rubberset 200-style shaving brush, which I had him stuff with a shavemac pure knot.  The brush is aesthetically and ergonomically superb.  The knot is terrific, being soft with moderate backbone and good flow through, and exhibits only the faintest hint of prickle, but only when I lather in a circular motion.  I lather on my face only and find this knot has a very nice face-feel.  I have only one other pure badger, a pre-Vulfix Simpson Duke 2.  It too is a pleasure to use, exhibiting most of the same characteristics as the BS shavemac, but I prefer the latter because it has a taller loft.  Based on these two brushes I’d say that high end pure badger is grossly underappreciated and overlooked.  I actually prefer these brushes to several of my 2-band silvertip.

Looks great. Your description of the knot sounds intriguing as well. What's the size of the knot? The loft is very well balanced to that handle.

I should have included that info.: knot is 24 mm X 50 mm and the handle is 67 mm high. I should have mentioned as well that the picture is of the brush right out of the box; now that I’ve used it several times I’ll post a picture of the knot bloomed. The brush is very well balanced and feels great in the hand; ideal for face lathering.
