Muhle Synthetic, 23mm, Lather off!

I just got my Muhle 23mm Synthetic and had to run it through some of my main soaps. Here ya go:

Up first.. MWF!
The loading went extremely fast and easy. It wasn't as airy as it starts out like when I use my other brushes. Creamier. Definitely decent. When I brushed it on my face the brush felt definitely different than badgers or boars. It did give me a slick, cushiony lather but it was kind of cold and not very scritchy. I will try a shave tomorrow but Im betting it will be good!

Here is Tabac. This was the soap that really surprised me! This brush lathered it quicker (and better) than any of my brushes. It was shocking!

I am quite surprised at the results I got. I got some extremely good lather but I didnt get the same "feel" on my face. i.e.. It doesn't exfoliate the same as my natural brushes. I won't really know until I try some shaves how it works out but so far my main complaint is cool lather. Otherwise, this is a crazy brush! It has decent backbone and feels really "smooth" on my face. Smoother than my Shavemac and Thater silver tips!

I prefer a cooler lather anyway, tepid or so, not hot. I use warm water to soak my brush while I shower and when I get out it's about right where I want it. During the summer I use colder water and cold shave, too. Shouldn't have any issues with my STF 2.0 when it gets here. :)

I'll definitely try it, I have a bit of my Tabac sample left. I wonder how it will like Calani and Speick if it likes German soaps. ;)
