Your favourite brush

#13
Just sold my maseto. Will be ordering a smaller brush. Might go for a thater 24mm
A Thäter or a shavemac are both great brushes. I have two of each and I struggle to choose between them in every aspect, overall quality, softness of the hair etc. I think a 24mm 2 Band Silvertip is definitely the way to go. Well it’s what I would probably buy next anyway.

You do have the option with the shavemac to get a brush tailormade to your exact requirements, which is nice. I’d still recommend a Thäter as, for me, they just edge the shavemacs I own.

Good luck.

So hard to pick a favourite, if I had to choose it would be one from each hair type.

Badger: Shavemac Americana - Fell in love with the handle and coveted it for a long time before I purchased it. Well worth every penny and I am not a badger guy by any degree.

Boar: Omega 10098 - It lathers everything, inexpensive and is my go to boar brush. It probably is my number one brush across all of my brushes, if I could only choose one.

Synthetic: Omega 46806 - Prefer the type of hair to Plissoft, feels a little firmer and looks absolutely divine. Very sexy brush lol

Horse: Vie Long 13061b - I don't actually have this yet but it is on its way to me from Gifts and Care. It is the same hair (50:50) as my other horse hair brush only a 24mm knot instead of 21mm. The handle is a nicer handle and I already know it will be my favourite horse. Horse is a very under-rated hair for brushes.
