Still in - DFS+ with a flat bottom Tech and a Bic Chrome Platinum (3)

Revisit of the 22mm Yaqi Sagrada Familia 2 Band, nice biggish knot but a bit unbalanced in regards to the small and slim handle. Simpsons does it much better with their Commodore X1 which has the same knot diameter and a comparable handle. The loft is overall shorter and the knot is not so densely packed as the Yaqi though.

Simpson Black Friday sale brushes are up. Bunch of crap. Yay. Still in!
Some lovely Chubby 2, Duke 3s, and M7 Manchurians on offer. And the Emperor 3 Manchurian caught my eye. The days of Black Friday Manchurians at 40% off might be over, but what's on offer is hardly a "bunch of crap!"

I appreciate your effort to prevent other GRUMERs from heading over there. A noble effort. Consider this flame-post a gift in kind for your excellent work seeking to destroy our Arko thread.

LOL.

The discounts just aren’t nearly enough to make me buy. GRUME or not.

The Duke 3 Manchurian is the only thing that is calling my name. Not bad for £175. The M7 Manchurians are discounted a little bit and are a good deal as well.
