Very nice. It looks like a dense and scrubby delight! If you don’t mind me asking, where did you find one with a Made in England decal?

I bought one two years ago from Maggard's and it had the same sticker with "Made in Engalnd."  Awesome brush, but I only use on weekends or when I have extra time.  It takes much longer to rinse clean than most other brushes I have because it holds sooooooo much lather.

Love it, this is my first chubby 3 and I’m really happy with it.
I know some people complain that is kind a big but for me at least is perfect.

They are a tough nut to crack but when fully mastered, should deliver a unique shaving experience.

It’s a best selling brush.

Yeah, me too. I bought mine from the Superior Shave 2-3 years ago. MIE sticker. Mine’s got a Best knot that is as soft as my Chubby 2 Super. Sometimes you get lucky and find a Best knot that rivals the Super grade. I have a Keyhole 3 like that. A beautifully soft Best knot Biggrin

Ya, in this humidity mine takes 3 days to fully dry.  At 28.5mm it's pretty dense.  I prefer the big brushes—a much more luxurious shaving experience.  Hardly ever use my little ones anymore.

Do you guys with super knots also find a tonne of shedding?  Losing about 15 hairs every shave and very carefully broke in the brush as well as religiously clean and hang dry after each usage.  My Kents never lost a hair and had 4 of them

I haven’t had any problems with any of my top notch brushes at all.
However I have a Vulfix in super that sheds like a wet German Shepherd every time I use it.
But even my Americana XL which is the biggest knot I have don’t show any signs of shedding, Knock on wood.

Sometimes a knot will be a "failure".....I mean, it will just fall apart or shed hairs forever.
I've had this with two well known, quality brush makers.

I lost perhaps one or two hairs per shave.  I was told to expect this.
