What a brush!
Thanks! I just realized I forgot to list it. It's my first brush I've assembled myself! Eastern red cedar handle with a 24 mm Maggard SHD 2-Band badger knot. Loft is approximately 52mm. It's not broken in yet but man it is comfortable on the face. It'll definitely be one of my favorites from now on.

The star of today's shave was Leonidam brush ! Fantastic. But now my wife want to try it for her legs.
Love the sent of Seville soap, and good combination for me with the sent of The Wanderer.
Have a great shave, and a great day !

Those Maggard SHD knots are super nice. Very soft, and even as dense as they are, they don't seem to hog the lather. Did you make the handle too?
