I cant decide whether to buy a wee scott brush or get a sight unseen kit from whipped dog. I don't have any straights and I was interested in trying one. I have quite a few brushes, 2 Simpsons (persian jar best and chubby 2 best), 1 Thater silvertip,1 EJ BBB, and 1 Morris and Forndran Blonde Badger. I was wondering would consider either one a must have?

I don't know what to say. I have RAD so for me the decision is to get both.

However, you have to determine what you want most out of your purchase ...

A Wonderful Little Shaving Brush that you will enjoy for the rest of your life

Or a Whole New Shaving Experience.

Good Luck

Now you may have use a Random Decision Maker to make the choice for you. When I have to make a tough choice, I use a two-headed coin.

Well, if trying a straight is something you want to do, I think you answered your own question. Appears you already have a nice selection of brushes.

You already have a bunch of good brushes. The Wee Scot is pretty unique to say the least.

How much would you really save on the sight unseen kit?

There's also my straight razor pass around to consider. It's almost free.

In answer to the question posed, no. Neither is something I would say you must have.

Well Crypto I believe in scratching an itch but if it's either/or the razor does fill a vacancy in your line up.

You can get a shave ready Gold Dollar 208 and a 2" Star Shaving strop for the same price. It's a better deal IMO.

Full disclosure: That said, I seem to be the only person selling the Gold Dollars shave ready. So take my opinion for what it's worth.

Well, as someone who is rock steady, but will never put a blade that sharp without a safety comb against my neck, for me it's a no brainer.

I'm still trying to get a decent shave from my Rolls Razor. (on hold at the moment)

I have used a WeeScot for the first time this morning and while it wasn't as "invigorating" as a straight shave experience I think it was more my speed.

Since you're going to have both anyway, just flip a coin.

Ask your wife to choose, that will make her feel part of the process and since you will eventually own both you can't lose.

I've had a Wee Scot for about a year. And though I have SBAD and use nearly all my brushes, the Wee Scot has never touched water or soap. Its a decorator piece.

I just can't leave a great brush on the shelf and reach for the WS. Just seems no reason to do it.
