Andy got back to me and suggested the aluminum slim 400 handle with a 22mm Synbad. i might go for it.
I can personally vouch for the .22mm Synbad, but that's just my experience.Andy got back to me and suggested the aluminum slim 400 handle with a 22mm Synbad. i might go for it.
This!May I suggest Whipped Dog? His tall handle in a 24mm brush probably meets your expectation for a handle. He has some very nice synthetic knots if that is what you are after, but I would highly recommend his High Mountain Badger (two band finest).
For that matter, he also sells handles by themselves, so you could buy this handle and go shopping for a knot elsewhere.
the captain’s choice stuff is nice, but i’d feel pretty crappy if i dented the bowl from slippery fingers or just plain clumsiness that i seem to suffer from more and more :/ maybe i’ll get one when i have to live in a rubber room
Actually on the majority of Italian barbers Youtube videos what I see is either 10049 or the Proraso brush. Not even sure I have seen 10098.Omega 10098 Pro gives you a 400 kind of handle and a big boar knot for small money. The preferred choice of Italian professional barbers.
I believe it is just because the Proraso and the 10049 are the cheapest of the professional models. And that is the reason for the barbers in Italy to prefer them. On one clip I saw 9-10 pcs of the Proraso brush next to the sink. On another ~20 pcs of 10049.So they have to drop the Pro designation?
