I already have 4 shavemacs : 2 D01 silvertip,one D01 two band and 1 finest badger.Today I got 2 more : 1 silvertip with a 19mm knot and 48mm loft and one pure badger with 21mm knot and 52mm loft:

I do have a friend who told me that he has a shavemac in pure badger and one Plisson in european grey and he cant find any differences in the hair used by both brands,but the handle,and the price. I find it more soft in the tips that I was expecting and also with a really great backbone,like the Morris and Forndran blonde badgers that I have.

The silvertip one has a 19mm knot and its soft and luxurious like my Vie Long 16910.Im finding myself liking these kind of small brushes with three band badger hair with knots under 20mm and lofts under 48mm,more than I even thought.Actually,they have became my favorite brushes,taking the spot of the 2 band badger hair.
This little fellow looks really similar than the Saville Row "Il Bambino" shaving brush,a kind of a famous brush among lovers of facelathering and silvertip brushes.Wink I would say that,besides the color of the handle,they look identical,even the shape of the hair....Anyway,I know that this brush its gonna make me happy from now on.

I find shavemac to be one of the finest brush makers on the market right now,even better,for my likes, than some famous UK brush makers.Im sure that I will be adding more shavemacs to the family in the future.

Thanks to Bern Bloss and his brand,shavemac,for offering such SUPERB badger hair shaving brushes!!!

I'm a fan of shavemac brushes - apart from their use of the lower case s!

Another excellent review Tieste. The shavemac brushes are excellent quality and their website is informative and comprehensive. But everything comes at a price, so it would be useful to know the price of the brushes reviewed.

Although they probably feel kind of lonely amidst all my Simpsons, these two shavemacs (167 in D01 and 173 with D01 flat-top) have their places in my regular brush rotation. I'm especially fond of the little flat-top. I had some other shavemac silvertips which I just didn't like quite as well, and I ended up selling them.

If anyone is interested, there is a shavemac model 501 in finest for sale right now on the auction site. I have nothing to do with the sale. It looks like a pretty good price.
