So since my holidays I've been considering a new brush to replace my wee 21cm Shavemac. I ended up coming across this site and the price was so low I ordered this walnut handled 23cm silvertip for €40. https://www.korium.de/rasieren/rasierpinsel/razzoor-rasierpinsel-silberspitze-walnut/a-644/ It arrived today so I couldn't resist doing a quick shave. On first inspection it has a moderate backbone and appears dense as it hasn't bloomed. Was soft with a little scritch on the face. While shaving had a bit of badger smell but should die down. Punished it with my hard puck of DRH Windsor. Not luxurious but certainly soft, scrubby (time will tell), and no scritch. All in all it loaded up very admirably and seems a fine little brush so far. Will post updates in a few weeks if anyone is interested.
