So, wetshavers thought Chubby synthetic was expensive? Well, here are the new "Cesare Battista" synthetics with artisan wooden handles: A real bargain at a mere EUR 349! This goes for EUR 399: They are sold in an italian shop (Goodfellas). Quoting the known forum motto "you get what you pay for", i expect that these will be the absolutely best synthetics by a long shot and with the most ergonomic handles ever! Don't let the beautiful shapes that remind Picasso fool you! These HAVE to be the best handles and brushes ever! Dear American friends, drop your cheap Chubby synthetics and support the italian economy! Bonus: If some of you gentlemen miss a finger or two, do not worry, the ergonomy of the handles is so carefully studied that it makes no difference how many fingers you have! And remember! You don't buy just the best brush in the world (price never lies). You also buy a wooden sculpture to decorate your living room when you are not shaving. Your wife will thank you!
