I'm a weak guy with no real character - just had to buy this only based on it's looks. I already own the Black resin version of the exact same brush - and it's not as floppy as a Kent BK8, but what is that to be honest - but it's a soft backbone free 3-Band Silvertip. I prefer using it for shaved on 1 day growth, because it's so silky smooth and soft.

But it lacks backbone and any kind of scrubbiness......but it looks like a real beauty.


Reason I'm a bit depressed over it that it's the first brush I buy, where I own an exact copy of it already (in black resin), and I have promised myself NEVER EVER to buy 2 of the same brushes. I broke my own rule here, and that is why I'm a weak fool Sad
I also never buy brushes with 55 mm loft or higher than that in 3-band soft Silvertip - I'm a weak jerk Blush

But just love the white porcelain finish with the golden stand....just love it !

Hair: 3-Band Soft Soft Silvertip
Loft: 55 mm
Knot: 23 mm

Claus is either doing research and has plans to start making his own brushes, or finally decided like I told him awhile ago; there is no such thing as the perfect brush!

Claus, very stunning brush. The brushes are cloning, it is not your weakness.

If you really want help we'll have to stop reinforcing your behavior.



That's an ugly brush. I don't know why you bought it.





Did that help?

Will you actually use it? Huh

You should have tried to contact Muhle and seen if you could order that handle with another knot. Because... Well... You and I are alike when it comes to brushes and we both know what happens with impulse buys.

As said, I already own the Mühle Sophist 23 mm 3-Band Silvertip in Black Resin, and actually - despite it being floppy and soft - I quite like it and enjoy it from time to time.

This was not an impulse buy - I have been looking at the brush 5-6 times during the last month or so before I pulled the trigger.
I just don't like to own 2 or more of the same brush - but loved the white porcelain handle and also kind of like the gold finished foot, even though it looks a bit 'pimp' [Image: attachment.php?attachmentid=275633&d=1348947359]

I know this brush is - for some - a floppy brush, but it's not as floppy as my Kent BK8, and I still like my Kent BK8, even though I almost sold it.......again....after having owned it twice Tongue

I may consider having some expert doing a reknot of it for me - Rudy Vey maybe..... Cool

There's always room for one or two floppy brushes in any collection. They're soft and luxurious on the face. Also, the problem is not the loft, but the knot diameter. I like 55-56mm brushes, but will look for 26-28mm diameter. I like the handle on the Muhle olivewood brush, but have not gotten it precisely because of the high loft and small knot diameter. With time this brush may grow on you. A floppy brush can be a nice occasional change from the usual backbone/scritch.

Could not have said it better. You need variety in your brush collection.......
