This thing is a beauty. Is this a limited special edition run?

A couple Boellis shaving creams arrived today.  I've been wanting to try them.

Luis, I wish soaps by Los Jabones de Joserra were available from a USA vendor.   I have his Rodrigo de Jerez soap, which I learned about from you last year, and it's excellent.  I had to get that from a UK vendor, but have not been able to locate other releases anywhere.   He does not seem to have a website,  and his soaps are difficult to find, even in Spain.  Does one have to reach out to him personally through Facebook or email?

On January 20th there will be new releases and a very promising new base Smile

I was admiring this a few weeks ago. Is the handle substantially solid, Ricardo? What about the knot? I’m guessing the Sovereign fibers are different from those in the newer Chubby brushes? The Simpson site is now calling those ‘Platinum’ grade. I bought one of the £17 black handle Simfix brushes when they came out, but the fibers felt different from the original Chubby fibers. Have you found (as have I) the newer Chubby synth fibers look and feel different from those made a few years ago? My first brush is labeled ‘synthetic badger,’ the new 100 yr LE CH2 fibers are labeled ‘synthetic bristle.’ They look and feel different to me.

Charlie, you ask a lot of good questions!  I'll be posting a review of the brush, including a comparison to the Chubby 2.  It is a substantially solid handle, but not as much as the Chubby 2.  The knot is very different than the Chubby 2.
