I decided to buy an SV brush, in tortoise shell handle. All the range is beautiful. I wanted a second so I could let them dry properly each day. I wanted one to be similar to the Chubby 3 which is luxurious on my face.
It is about the same size as my CH3 but not as dense a knot. I've done a few test lathers plus a proper shave and is certainly a match to the Chubby ! Loads soap and lathers like a dream. Very very nice. Highly recommended and will be a pleasure to use.
It's badger, but has not shed a single hair, and it dries well within 24 hours. A fine brush indeed.
