What's new

Kent Infinity Silvertex Synthetic, my thoughts.

Received my Kent Synthetic recently. Overall I'm pretty impressed with it. My first synthetic, so I can't really say how it compares to others. Soft tips and good back bone. Doesn't really splay like hair brushes, but I'm only on shave two with it. I bought it out of curiosity, and I'm glad I did. I think this little guy will definately see some use. I picked it up on flea-bay, BEFORE I realized that West Coast Shaving carries them as well. I think it's a deal at $25'ish . Sorry for the blurry phone pic...

They are quite decent and good value for the price. But the new Frank Shaving synths and particularly the Muhle V2 fibres have eclipsed the performance and feel of this one. I used to own one of these myself.
I love my Silvertex, but I prefer a scrubby brush. I find that treating it a bit roughly (maybe some strong palm lathering) will cause it to splay more easily.
