Each day, as you've reached for one and used it, set it aside.
Do this for two weeks.

Then use only the ones you've set aside for the next two weeks.

You will have reduced your herd to the 14 that are your preferred ones.

If you choose one from the herd, then one of the two-week selection must go back to the herd.

Keep this method going for "a while."  You will find that you've selected the 14 brushes that resonate with you.

Which one should you let go? That's easy. If you have a Wilborg that should be earmarked for me. GLWTS when you decide.[Image: sGah3u5.jpg]

Shopify and PayPal do, at least since we launched the website in March 2016. And I still have spreadsheets from the First Batch, Second Batch, and 2015 TSN LE.

I fondly recall our meeting in Sweet Home on a pass-through there a few years back.

my question is pretty general. figured you were squared away.  my oldest is a pk 47 swirl/butterscotch  made in England.  town is the same although you are progressing further west now. best old friend

Keep two for creams, two for hard soaps, two for softer soaps, but make sure you have two for face lathering and two for bowl/ scuttle use.
Or sell whatever will sell and buy one more if the conditions aren’t met in the end :-)
I tend to keep a couple badgers, a couple Silvertips and a couple synthetics. All have different backbone, softness and density. This way all mood shaves are covered with efficiency.
Very nice collection, by the way! At your rate of collection, you’d make out learning how to turn your own ;-)
