Here's two photos of my brush after my first lathering with it. Quick bloom. Nice stiff backbone, soft tips, great lathering, feels good in the hand, good on the face brush. The favorite in my rotation now. It is a 24.5 mm knot/49 mm loft Ace badger silvertip. Dense knot, but has lost few hairs.

Several months ago Gary used a TGN Super Badger knot to replace my eshave knot. This Ace knot is even better than the TGN.

This is a densely hand packed knot so there will be a few shorts that come out. Mine lost a couple of hairs a day for about a week then it stopped.

I am glad you are enjoying the brush. Thanks for the opportunity to allow me to make it for you.

As I told you, it's hard for me to use any other brush out of my 13 brush rotation now. I had to let it dry one day out of the week and use another brush. I might have to research how to hasten drying so I can use it every day.

Use a fan. Works on boar btw. Dry in 4 hours. Badger usually only takes 1.

Sometimes, the simpler they are, the more elegant they are.
