Thanks Jim.Yes, the PF. Free shipping. (Much higher prices though on eBay so go to the PF website).
Vintage Scents also has great prices, but I'm not sure what their shipping is. I am also not sure what they're talking about sometimes in their descriptions but their prices are maybe better than the PF. I'd have to know their shipping to be sure of anything.
Marty, I really like butterscotch, and believe these mixed knots have great potential. I am glad to have joined this party, and also the butterscotch party.
I've forgotten which Zenith Manchurian you got and whether you liked it. I see Zenith now has some brushes in butterscotch. I don't think Zenith has a brush in mixed boar and badger; none I've found anyway.
I'm on a gentlemanly restraint (no more brush purchases; several are on order) until the fall so I'm not tempted but I can still admire them. The restraint began yesterday; I've had a recent brush buying spree of considerable proportions and had to reign myself in.
The mistura reviews are universally great.
I got the Zenith w/ copper handle. Love the knot but copper tainted rather quickly, spotty & tacky feel; still good, frequent use, enjoyable brush. I did see that Z now has a butterscotch Manchurian, hmm - also tempting, but really itching to try Semogue Mistura mix.
Thanks for the purchase tip; I did see price at PF site w/o VAT very attractive but wasn’t sure how much they’d charge for shipping. If free, seems a no brainer.
