This is my goto brush if I need an all round great brush. It's more suited for bowl lathering but will do a fine job at face lathering too if needed. The silvertips badger hairs in this brush is 10/10 in quality. Leaves Simpsons, Kent, Thater, Rooney and Plisson in the dust. Some will call it floppy, but to me it's the softest silky most smooth brush I've ever tested in my life. It rivals my Kent BLK8 in this regard. The handle is made in black high quality resin and the bottom is made in polished chrome with the Mühle logo on the bottom. Top marks for design - it takes a custom Shavemac to match this design and quality. I often use this brush to wet and prepare my face before I either face of bowl lather with my brush of the day because this Mühle brush is just so silky smooth and soft in feel. Will always be a part of my den because of this.
