I 'm looking to add to my collection a bit in the different knot sizes - I'm looking for things that once you get them, you tend to keep them.

I primarily use MWF, Tabac, Euro Palmolive and Arko...face lathering.

I'm looking to fill in the 23mm, 24mm and 25mm slots. Money isn't a huge concern as such...but let's say you have a limit of $200-$250 per brush.

I know this is a YMMV type of thing...but I'm still interested to see what the various opinions might be.

Currently my "first string" regular rotation includes:

Rooney Finest 2/1 22mm

23mm - open
24mm - open
25mm -open

Simpson 59 2 Band Super 26mm

Simpson Tulip 4 Super 27mm

Simpson Chubby 2 Best 28mm

Vulfix 41 Silvertip 29mm

Thater 4292/6 30mm

Simpson Chubby 3 Super 31mm

Rudy Vey TGN 2 Band Finest 32mm

Thanks Johnny!

Well..I used to collect handguns, so this is easier on the wallet than that hobby ever was. Confused

A nice Colt Python will buy you a few brushes...

Been there, done that and I know what you mean. The only one I have left is my Dad's WWII issue Colt 45 and you could not put a price on it.
