This one is also from their pro / barbers line. Extra does not mean extra quality hair, but that the hairs have been treated to make the tips extra soft. Price is good, some 13 euro shipped to Europe, some 16 international. It has enough back bone to easily lather soaps and creams, but feels quite soft on the face. Usually mane hairs are a bit prickly, but the treatment has cured that. Quality is good, only lost a few hears during the break in. No 1 is a medium size: the handle is about 2,8 cms wide and 5,5 high, loft 6 cms high and 1,8 cms wide. No 2 has a bit bigger/wider handle (3 cms) and a bit bigger/wider loft 2 cms. Density is fine with both. As I have large hands no 2 fits a bit better, but not much difference. It lathered great from the very first time (I simply start using them, no treatments), Williams soap, Tabac stick and cream, Arko stick, Jentlemen Classic Fern cream and Sanders soap were no problem for the brush. A very nice brush, well made and a good performer. Worth a try. This brush is also available in black hair.
