Latest reviews

Pros: Good backbone, soft bristles, solid handle, very little bristle loss
Cons: None for me
Oh man I really like this brush. It was the second badger hair brush I ever shaved with and the first two-band badger. This has the perfect amount of backbone and density for me. The bristles are soft but still have a bit of scritch. I've been using mostly boar since I started DE shaving a year ago, and I kind of like a little scritch so this brush is perfect for me. I find it so easy to lather soaps and creams with this brush. It's a real pleasure. The sale price was right too at $13!

I like to splay my brushes a few times while I face lather. This brush has just the right amount of splay with it's 55mm loft. I'm still getting used to badger brushes, so my opinion may change, but for know I like this two-band badger even better than the Yaqi slivertip I got. There was some shedding of the bristles but not much. That's pretty much stopped now that I've been using it for a while. The handle has a nice solid feel to it, is easy to grip, and looks great!

Looking forward to a lot more shaves with this brush

@JoWolf No worries at all! Glad that Chubby is working out for you. The largest knot I have is a Yaqi 26mm Two-Band. I really do love it but I think it’s as large as I’d like to go. I think 24mm is the sweet spot for me. But I gotta say I love they way that Chubby looks in the pic! Hope you’re well in these funky times 👍

@MrBeez The Zenith Chubby is easily my favourite boar. The shorter loft and higher density knot has a tighter footprint than its knot size would indicate. It is the thinnest boar hair I have and probably one of the reasons for it’s softness. I have started journaling and there is a full spread on knotting my new brushes and prepping them.

I hope you are also doing well in our new abnormal when ever we figure out what it is. We are doing well in the numbers. I do notice everyone holding there breathe when we pass each other in the grocery stores. I hope that changes I can’t hod my breathe too long😷
