Hello BrushFanatics Biggrin

I just ordered these 2 M&F brushes from Lee - any advice to corrections before I paypal Lee the money ?

I face lather exclusively, and only creams and croaps - NOT soaps.
My scuttle is only used as a brush scuttle........

I build lather directly on my face - sometimes for variation and if my face needs a bit of rest and also because I need to START USING ALL MY BRUSHES - I combine two creams, and use one brush for face lathering directly on my face for the first pass, and then for the second or third pass I use a second brush and palm-lather that the first 20-30 seconds and then face lather it for the rest of the time. This is an efficient way of breaking in some of my stiffer 2-Bander and a good way to use all of the brushes in my growing collection - plus I get to use more of shaving creams, having 60+ shaving cream means I NEED TO USE MORE PRODUCT TOO

I'm going for a Jade and a 'Snow Leopard' M&F - inspired by Mike P (Pic courtesy of Mike P)

Brush 1 - Jade colored handle
Handle height: 48 mm
Knot size: 28 mm

Knot size: 28 mm
Knot loft: 48 mm
Knot shape: FAN
Hair Type: 2-Band (preferably old stock Rooney Finest 2-Band)

I would switch materials.

The m7 type would look great in a darker color, whereas the chubby would be more luxurious in Jade.

Just my 2cts!

You see the pics are just a showcase - both my brushes will get exactly the same handle size, 48 mm tall, only difference will be the handle pattern and then knot loft and knot shape.
All other factors will be identical between the 2 brushes.
Pic above was just to illustrate the handle pattern I'm ordering.
It's a pic from Mike P - Lee Sabini has to built my brushes from scratch - right down to drilling out the handle and finding the material for the handles.

Lee may still have very little left in stock - it doesn't hurt to ask, now does it Tongue
