Plissoft Monster Synthetic Shaving Brush

Pros: Soft tips,great feel in the hand
Cons: None
I was looking for another synthetic brush and found this new brush. Italian Barber had it listed on sale for $10.00. Great price for a large brush. When I received it I was happily surprised. It looked great and I loved the handle. The tips were extremely soft. I use creams and it lathered it up very well. Nice addition to my rotation, right next to my Razorock Plissoft.

Pros: great beginner brush
Cons: none
I just began wet shaving a few months ago, and honestly this brush (not this specific brush, but the knot, the plisson knot) changed my view of wet shaving. I have the Razorock plissoft brush, which is the exact same brush with a different handle. When I first started, I bought a cheap $20 Van der hagen boar brush, soap, and mug set. I tried time after time to create a good lather, but it was awful everytime, and after shaving a month with irritating lathers, I decided to branch out because I was using all the techniques experienced wet shavers recommended, so I thought well maybe it is the products I am using, and I was right. The Vander hagen soap is actually a very good, inexpensive soap. But the boar brush that is included I wouldnt say is terrible, maybe it just needs breaking in, but nevertheless, it could not create a lather out of the box. So I did some reviews and ordered the razorock plissoft, and I get a great lather every time. I think the key is the density. It is such a dense knot with soft tips, it makes for the perfect brush, especially for beginners. Trust me, if you are a beginner and cannot create a lather, try this brush. It is a game changer, especially for the price. You will not find a better knot for under $15, I promise.

Pros: size, feel
Cons: none
I had not been a huge synthetic fan until now. The brushes always seemed too stiff and I much preferred a soft badger brush, not necessarily building the lather, but applying it to my face (or face lathering for that matter). This baby solves that issue. I'm not sure if it's the fiber material itself, or just the huge knot makes it behave that way, but there's now enough flexibility in this brush to behave like my best badger brushes do. I wouldn't say it's as nice as my silvertip brush, but it's darn close and, at the price listed on italianbarber.com, this is a brush that could be purchased annually and not break the bank!
