I did receive this brush today.I must say that Its a stunning looking beautiful brush,but larger than I expected ,for sure.....

[Image: P1220051.jpg]

The handle looks really good,but no different than my old KIM SON VU or new Morris and Forndran brushes,both with horn handles (well,the M&F has a darker handle than this).

[Image: P1220052.jpg]

It seems like the Plisson decal logo its really stick to the handle,so I wont worry about loosing it ....

[Image: P1220053.jpg]

Its density its quiet normal,not like a Simpson/Rooney brush for sure,but more like a Semogue/Vie Long kind of density.Not really impress with this either.

Heres a pic with a T&H (Rooney 1/2 and 1/1) for a size comparison:

So,whats so special about this HMW badger hair?Well,I dont know.I only know that I palm lathered with it 5 times and I didnt feel anything special o discovered a new thing about shaving brushes...It lathers well,seems to have anough backbone to take care of triple milled soaps and facelathering but nothing than other brushes that I own cant do....

Ill shave with it tomorrow and find out but so far I think that I would like a size 12 or 10 better.

Modern Plisson's may not be worth their premium.

However, I have an 80's HMW 14, and that's easily the best brush I've ever used. I also didn't pay anything like what a new HMW 14 would cost.

The hair on my brush is like nothing I have ever used. I have stopped comparing any of my other brushes to it, as it is a waste of time.

Incidentally, I got another Plisson from the 80's - of a lower grade hair (not sure which), and that's pretty good too. If the knot was not peaked, I'd have said it was brilliant, but even so - it is like a smaller Caravela.

I have had two 'new' Plisson's and I haven't like them at all.

Since the upgrade some of my attachments have no longer been viewable, so I've reattached some of my pics in to my posts that (IMO) are lacking without them...

Thanks for your inputs,my friend.I need to try a HWM 12 or 10 to compare it with the kind of brushes that I like but some people (secially in the spanish forum foroafeitado.com) love the HWM brushes.

Nice looking brushes but I imagine on the expensive side.

How does the performance of the Plisson brush compare to a Shavemac or Thater of equivalent size? I'm interested in your opinions, I have several of each and I am interested in other users' experience. These 3 manufacturers are my favorites, along with Rudy Vey and the Shavemac knots he uses.

I dont have a Thater or a shavemac with 59 mm loft,but the Thater and the shavemacs that I have tried/own are much better brushes for me (IMHO).Softer tips than this HWM.However,the Plisson has a great backbone and flow,specially if you use paint movements to make lather.

Yes, that is true Teiste. I only place a few orders a year with Plisson so, it is hit or miss.

Sorry to be digging this up, but by two band hair do you mean something like this? It's just that I've never seen a true 2-band hair in a Plisson HMW.

Prior to becoming a Moderator, I exceed my upload limit. I don't like using third party programs to upload my images although I have since set aside my resistance I'm still not a fan of relinquishing my rights to any image uploaded with this kind of software.

Interestingly I've recently noticed a lot of my pics (especially of Plisson brushes) appearing on various blogger's pages. These bloggers are passing the images off as there own and no doubt receiving royalties for their review of products they in fact do not even own themselves (especially Plisson which I've personally paid handsomely to own)... Angry

Well, now I'm even more confused. I'd never seen an Ivory Plisson in EW, only in HMW. Huh

Special order in consolation with Joris Viart.

DrP and I collaborated and received 1 each (genuine ivory, size 14, 2 band EW)...
