I got my Chubby 1 from WCS in the mail today, and I must admit, my first impressions, after taking it out of the box was "what is all the hype about?" it looks a bit like my other two brushes (Vulfix pure, Edwin Jagger best), both of which are priced much lower than the Chubby. Well, I just got done shaving with it and all I can say is WOW! I used it to face lather with Tabac soap, and I must say the Chubby 1 DELIVERS! I am not too good at descriptions, but I will just say that the brush felt very luxurious on my face compared to my other two brushes and it retained heat very well. After one shave, I am very impressed with the Chubby 1. Glad I bought it!
