I just purchased one as the regular brush to keep at a place where I spend one or two nights a week. I'm curious to hear any of your thoughts on these brushes. I bought a silvertip brush (here's the link to it if you're curious): http://shop.starshaving.com/Silvertip-Badger-Hair-Shave-Brush-0011.htm My regular daily brush is a Merkur Futur; I used the FSC brush for the first time this morning. I definitely have some thoughts about it but as I'm still a newbie to this I'd like to hear from more seasoned shavers who may have purchased / used this brush. Thanks.
