Just ordered my first real brush and can't wait to get it...damage done at West Coast Shaving...Simpson Commodore X2 Best Badger , Tabac Soap, and Personna Red blades. Up until now, the last couple months, I have been using a cheap escali brush. I am currently using derby's and astras and have been wanting to try the personna reds. Looking forward to getting my new loot. Hope everybody is having a great week!
