Alright, so admittedly, my brush knowledge is not great. I have an Omega boar, a Vulfix Grosvenor, a Vie-Long Zurito....and a Lijun 22mm Finest. Am I missing something here? I was under-impressed with everything until I got the Lijun in a trade. It is super dense and soft, lathers like a beast and has great back bone. Do the Simpson's, Thater's et al have that much much on the Lijun to warrant a price tag of 300%-2000% more? And as a side note, how to the Frank Shaving and Ace Shaving knots compare to both Lijun and the Big Dogs?
