It's a decent brush, provides a fair priced alternative in horse-hair. The handle seems small and short. Makes it a bit awkward for hanging on my rack, and lathering using a scuttle or bowl. And consequently, I'd probably not purchase again, but that is not meant as negative. Rather, just not a favorite among my brushes. Visually it is not particularly eye-catching. It's functional. Shop price with this purchase. Was $8 less at Walmart than most of the other sellers.
