This isn't going to be a story of the worlds best brush, quite the opposite. I really enjoy fooling around with brushes and I think "fooling" is an excellent choice of words here. I'm also a big brush fan but beginning to understand there is a reason to have a brush 24mm and under, I just don't know if it's a good reason. The brush pictured has a homemade handle and a 28mm Super Badger knot set at 60mm in the pic. Pic is post bloom. Well, no real surprise, it wasn't what I was looking for, way too mushy, just about zero for backbone. So, adjustment, no good, adjust again, no good. Final setting the loft is at 48mm and I still don't care for it, still too mushy and lacks backbone. It could be used for bowl lathering but I'm a face latherer. Now, it's knotectomy time, similar to a hemorrhoidectomy but much less painful (I know this, I just had the procedure done). I had some dandy, large 2 bands that I PIF'd, it might be time to get another finest knot. Have a good one.

Max, the last adjustment, I glued. I figured this is it, or bust, well it was bust. I must admit that the finest knots are superb. I'm also a a fan of the Grade A's but strictly Golilocks on the rest, too scritchy, too soft, well, you know what I mean, too fussy.
