    Review by 'JoWolf' on item 'Zenith Chubby Scrubby Boar B27 - 28mm x 55mm'

    Zenith Chubby Scrubby Boar B27 - 28mm x 55mm This brush is fully broken in. The knot is very full and dense. Of my four boar hair brushes this hair is the finest or thinnest. Damp and drying knot measured at handle lip 30mm. The brush does not have a prominent bloom and for its size the...

    @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...

    MrBeez I’m sorry I had not responded. It is a 28mm knot with a 55mm loft. I consider the brush 95% broken in. It’s softness just short of my silvertip, but scrub is very nice, shorter loft also a tick off for painting comfort. I’m starting to understand boar brushes a little better and love...

    @MrBeez Very nice bloom on the 820, which from most Semogue photos I’ve seen they usually all have a wide bloom. I’m posting a more recent photo of the Chubby which I’m thinking is about 90% broken in, the same with the horse. This horse has all the same stuff as the Chubby but with a longer...

    @MrBeez I have two boars a Zenith Chubby and a Semogue 2000. In performance they are opposites. I just ordered some o rings and I am going to put one onto the Semogue just above the handle to see if that can snug up the loft and not look too cheesy. I shaved with it yesterday and even a three...

    @MrBeez The red brush is a real beauty. Two knots and two handles have arrived and I’m waiting for two more of each. The depth on the handle seems shallower then I would like and I cannot drill them out. If I’m not happy with the loft on dry fit measure I’ll probably use silicone rather then...

    A few months down the road from your review. Do you still favour the two band over the silvertip? Nice review. I also ordered that handle for a boar knot.

    Review by 'JoWolf' on item 'Fatip Original Grande GOLD Safety Razor'

    An eyeful of bling. My first shave with the Grande. The handle smooth with vertical lines can be slippery, I use a little alum on my hands. Smooth, efficient with a neutral balance. A steep blade angle is where the efficiency is at its best. Smooth strokes are accompanied with good audio...

    Thank you. I enjoy reading about all blades that shave with the exception of plastic blade cartridges, which I had used for too long.

    I do not have any knowledge or do I use straights. I enjoy your informative reviews. I f I may ask a question. Why did the razor only get two stars for shaving smoothness?

    Review by 'JoWolf' on item 'Game Changer 068 Open Comb'

    This was my first shave with the 068 OC. This is also my first open comb. Only the base plate is available at this time, you must have a Game Changer top cap. So I bought the 084 solid bar. I used a Plisson silvertip Badger, Saponificio Varesino Felce Aromatica, and Voshkod (1). A Mamba70 is my...

    l found the Yaqi 30mm to be a very comfortable brush. I shave head and face together and between six passes and buffing and clean ups the larger knot brushes perform better for me. I have a couple of badger 28mm high density brush knots coming and reviews spec them as being big on water and...

    All my brushes are big knot and after I broke a stand trying to put a brush in, it ain’t a thing for me anymore. General consensus on stands seem to be aesthetics and this has been my experience as well. Thanks for reading and commenting.

    Preview First off The Yaqui store is a great place to get shaving equipment. I was a little leery shopping online Alibaba in China with no tracking, I’m in Canada the delivery was around two weeks. All in with shipping under $30.00 Canadian. I’ve waited longer for stuff from the USA and even...
