There is a relationship between the two German firms so I would not be surprised to find they shared the same knot. They look identical to me as well.View attachment 1027216
Used the 28mm fan Shavemac synth in jade today. There’s a 26mm bulb tortoise synth next to it. These are great dense synth brushes with nice backbone and soft tips.
There’s a Thater 2-band badger in the background. That is one of my very favorite brushes, great for face lathering.
If I was had to choose between the synth brush or the badger, I’d probably go for the badger. Luckily, I don’t have to do that. They excel in different ways and I appreciate them both.
I’m operating under the assumption that the Shavemac and Thater are the same. I’d expect the Thater to be just as nice.
