As a lot of you know I like big, Chubby-style brushes. Right now I have 3 Simpson Chubby 3's (all 31mm+), a Rooney 3XL (30mm), a 34mm M & F (Finest hair) and a 31mm M & F. Well, this one will trump them all. It is a 35mm knot x 63mm loft "Chubby-style" brush made with a Shavemac D01 2-band knot. Inasmuch as it's a D01 2-band, I'm sure it will take months of regular use and palm-lathering to break it in, but once I get it to where I like it, I am expecting (hoping) that it will be a spectacular performer.

Well done Sir, that is indeed a beast. I'd love to see some pics of it next to the others.

It looks like it will eat soaps for breakfast. Enjoy.

I suspect building lathe with this brush will be a bit of a challenge. I had a 34mm Thater bulb a while back that was the biggest soap hog ever - this one will probably be at least as hungry.

Nice Brush Monster, Bob Biggrin

Good choice to get it in bulb, in fan you would have problems getting into any shaving cream/soap pot on the market besides Castle Forbes pots, which are very wide.

Does this thing use a whole puck of soap for each shave? Smile

Nice looking brush, though.

If any of you are as crazy about big brushes as I am, Rudy has two more of these amazing knots available.
