I have heard so much of Heinrich L. Thater and the great brushes that they make,that I finally had to get one.Of course I got it from <!-- m -->http://www.bullgooseshaving.net/hthst14.html<!-- m -->

As many of you know I have several shavemacs and I really love that brand,so I can compare this Thater brush with any of my shavemacs.

This brush has a 24mm knot,51mm loft and a total height of 97mm

This brush has silvertip hair,which I can tell you right now its closer to the shavemac D01 silvertip than to the regular shavemac silvertip.It has super soft tips,close to the Vie LOng 16910 in luxurious feeling.

It doesnt have the density of a shavemac D01 silvetip or any of the mayor UK brands (as you can see in the pic),maybe in this case is closer to the regular shavemac silvertip or Semogue/Vie Long silvertip brushes,however has a really good firm backbone,something that I really like.

The pics doesnt do any justice to the handle,which is really nice and pretty ergonomic.Its kind of sturdy,like the Simpson habdles and so easy to handle.I really like it in black better than the white version,which also has the new Thater logo (the white version,I mean)

Ill be using it this coming week,but so far Im really,really impress with this brush,and I dont get that easily impress with a brush,or at least I havent been in a while.

It's vey subjective. I find my Thater Porter 4292/3 I've bought from Phil softer than my flat top D01 3-band 22/48. I feel D01 tips have a little more scrub similat to Savile Row Silvertip. I perceive Thater is closer to my T&H 1/2 in respect strictly to softness.

I picked one up too when Phil put them on clearance. The only similar chunky silvertip I've had is the Frank Richmond, which is nice but smaller and less firm. The Thater has lots of substance to it and enough backbone, but it's like lathering with a cloud. I do love it.

The only other silvertip I have is Vie-Long's flat-loft brush, which I'd call a completely different format. Terrific brush. My only other badger is the Wee Scot. I've been getting horses lately.
