This Shavemac is an amazing robust brush with a beautiful ebonite handle, but as much as I love density and backbone, this one might be too much of a good thing. I think the original owner called it a unique knot, but the card just says 2-band. It may as well be a D01 two band. It is so scrubby, has the backbone of a lint brush, and look at my pics to see how the density compares to a Chubby 2. The Shavemac is on the right in all photos. I'm not sure of the measurements, but it looks like a 26 if the CH-2 is a 27. However, it has more bloom, so on the face it is actually bigger. Ebonite brushes are about $260 on Shavemac's site. I'm looking for $200 shipped to the US or PR. Trades will be considered, but it would probably have to be a Varlet or Wiborg (yeah right).
