Big Brush Time - SBAD has set in

I was so convinced I didn't have SBAD. SCAD, sure, I know I have that. RAD real bad. But SBAD, no. One little cheap Vulfix pure, and one Shavemac finest. I am happy with them. Sure, fun to read about Persian Jars, and Saville Rows, and Plissons, and wonder what they are like, but I'm not buying anything else.

And then some gent has to post a Vulfix #41 on SMF for $75 and I just have to buy it, totally on a whim, because as soon as I see it, I have this irresistible urge to know what it is like to use a really big brush....

So yeah, I have that AD too....
 
Emsplace.com has a large selection of Omega pures and silvertips. I just bought the charcoal handled pure - $49.50. It's a beautiful and very well made brush, full and surprisingly soft. I'm quite impressed!

Nice, is there a 25mm knot on that bad boy?
 
Joe,

My charcoal is 24mm; she's got a faux ivory that's 25mm. Check her site out, there are 2 pages of Omega brushes. There's also a measurement page for Omegas. I can't believe how soft my Pure is!

I kept telling myself I would ignore the temptation of Simpsons. There are so many great brushes that are cheaper. I don't really need any new brushes. Etc. And then, today, two days after buying a Vulfix #41, I find I have again succumbed. To a Simpson PJ3. Used from Leisureguy. ARRGHHH. What's next, a Plisson HWM??!?!?
 
Hey Moses, is your brush in Best or Super grade? I would be interested to hear your take on this brush. I am waiting for Lee's stock of PJ's to be replentished, and then a PJ2 in Super should be headed my direction.
Thanls, DJ.
 
Mitch,

I guess I have to stop chuckling at you PJ fanatics now. :rolleyes:

DJ,

Super. I'm really looking forward to seeing what high grade badger hair is like. The best I've used so far is Shavemac finest. It is getting shipping tomorrow - not sure where leisureguy is located though, but I'll report as soon as I get it.
 
ARRRGHHH!!!!

I believe it is getting worse and worse. I think I just bought a T3 Super. Wanted to be able to compare it to the PJ3. Now I just really want a Harvard 5, so I could compare the Best hair.
