In deed. In his video he also explains some curious details for just a "common" customer. Like that all brushes are perfect, because they are individually inspected at the end and any brush less than perfect gets tossed into the garbage bin and only the perfect ones are sold. How can you know such a details if you are just "another common customer" (of a brush without shop)?I'm sure he didn't forget to mention it... I'm thinking if he mentioned a price in the video's it would scare off more than a few potential customers!!
btw... Maybe its just me but the handle design is... well... ugly imo!! I see nothing ergonomic at all in those pics...
3D is not artisan, sir! It would be as if an industry mass produced MdC! It wouldn't worth EUR 60. This is the supreme synthetic. The price is testimony!Some enterprising person could use 3D printing and create handles like that for minimal cost, I suppose.
Of course, the more you pay, the more it is worth.
As one fan of Gary Cooper to another, i urge you sir, as well as the other Americans of the forum, especially those who vote "the sky is the limit" when it comes to purchases, to support the italian economy and buy finally a premium synthetic! You get what you pay for. You can't really expect something cheap as a Chubby or a Muhle to be on par with this brush, can you?I’ll wait for you guys to review it first!!
It's the same soap base as any other Extrò Cosmesi, just with different scent and label. But I forget that scents and packaging are very important to shavers these days.Probably, because as i just checked, his soap is currently "out of stock" in said shop. Sales go well! Production can't keep up with demand!
Not to mention the added value and personal prestige, from using the shave soap, that has the name, face and seal of approval of a wetshaving celebrity! Surely, this distinguishes it from other Extrò Cosmesi soaps!It's the same soap base as any other Extrò Cosmesi, just with different scent and label.

But you also have to use it like the celebrity M*D*L. Thick paste, stucco method.Not to mention the added value and personal prestige, from using the shave soap, that has the name, face and seal of approval of a wetshaving celebrity! Surely, this distinguishes it from other Extrò Cosmesi soaps!
His plaster (stucco) lather, i suspect contributed enormously into becoming a celebrity, because 1) Nobody else did it, 2) He used it to make his patented review method, where he can review a soap and evaluate its qualities, without actually shaving. The plaster lather is paramount to the success of this review method, since it ensures repeatability of results. Maybe i don't understand the logic behind it, but he is the celebrity, not me...
Now this would be extremely funny!next month Yaqi , same brush 17 different colors of lucite & wood $ 22.50 + shipping
The price is not crazy, sir! Think if you could go back in time, when the first Chubby 3 brush was made. Wouldn't you buy it? A first of its kind? Yes you would. You are witnessing, the revolution of the shaving handles as we knew it. And unlike Chubbies, where, nowdays they are everywhere and once you 've seen one, you 've seen them all, these brushes are unique, each one of them. Imagine a Chubby 3 that nobody else in the world has.Crazy price, very cool brush. I'm not a big fan of a lot of new artisan or yaqi handles (but artisans handles some look fantastic).
Love the look of these, i'm sure very interesting to get used to compared to the average "cylinder"ish handle.
I'm guessing if you are a demographic of his for the cigar stands and humidors, this brush price aint a thing.
