Hello Gentlemen,

I used vie-long mix brush for the last week.

The technical specs of the brush are:

Overall Length: 97mm.

Handle Length: 43mm.

Loft: 55mm.

Knot: 20mm.

The brush has a knot composed of horse and badger hair. I think the badger is of pure or black badger origin. It is a moderately packed brush. The knot makes lather with little effort.
It is suitable for both face and bowl lathering. Since it is not a dense brush it is not a lather-hog.

It has good backbone and flow. The knot has a great feel on the face, a little more backbone would make it perfect. The scritch is there but not pronounced, I don't recommend this brush to my friends who like soft-as-a-cloud brushes.

The shortcoming part of the brush is the handle. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful looking handle. It looks quality but you can not feel it when you hold the brush. The handle is plastic (or acrylic) and the inside of the handle is empty, so it is a very light brush, this is a no-no for me. It is medium-small handle and I can not say it is comfortable to hold with my large hand.

The knot is above average, but the handle makes it a pass for me.
Score: 6/10
