I think I am done buying brushes because I am very happy with what I have. None of them are anything special, but two of them are originals that I doubt anyone else has
- Back right is a Fendrihan supper badger, under $50 soft as a cloud and makes great lather with cream, really good lather with hard soap.
- Back left is my Omega 005 that I put a TGN silver tip badger knot in, it is stiffer than the Fendrihan, but at the same time softer. Kills it on all soaps and creams, total cost, with the shipping for the knot, about $40
- In the front is a one off custom that cost less than $10. Its my travel brush, the knot is a cheap best badger from Lee Valley Tools, and the handle was turned to my specs by a very generous member on Badger and Blade. He wouldn't accept any money for it not even shipping. Its a stiff little brush, and fits into a large pill bottle that I drilled some vent holes in for ventilation. Small and stiff but still makes great lather on all my soaps and creams.
With these three my brush wants and needs were met and I haven't found myself wanting anything else. Now if I could only do the same thing with razors and soaps
