I am an admitted brushahollic! And I'm not sure if I can even follow through with this concept, but I would like to try and use a different brush every day until I run through my entire collection. Please forgive me if I cannot provide all the information on every brush, as I have collected them over many years. Please feel free to share yours as well.
Here we go....

Din, I do this, almost daily, my friend!  Big Grin

To be honest, I doubt I could incorporate, all of the brushes I own, as quite a few are reserved for my son and I don't use them as I have enough (too many actually) of my own.   Happy

Best of luck to you and I look forward to seeing your lovely collection. Happy2

Sometimes I wish that I had fewer choices too....well maybe not...but maybe this will get me to thin the herd a little.

I hear you celestino I'm not really sure that I will make it, as I have some beauties coming in soon and it will be very hard not to use them more than once.Tongue

Though I have somewhere between 15-20 brushes, I feel the same about them as I do my soaps/creams (probably at least 20), EdTs/colognes (15-20), and my razors (again, probably 15-20).  Not to say what you're attempting, Dinder1, isn't an interesting experiment but I always choose what I use on a whim.  I enjoy my morning shave and part of the fun is deciding what I'm in the mood for for my next shave.  If I used the same stuff every time or set up strict uses, such as using a different brush, soap, razor, EdT each day until I went through them, I would feel as constricted as I do with a cartridge razor and canned gel or foam.  It is those delicious choices I make each time, without restraint, that adds so much to my shaving routine.

Good luck to you on this and I shall look forward to seeing your posts on the brushes. Happy2

I don't have enough brushes to join you in your quest Sad. I will watch from afar though, as clearly this seems to be a significant challenge for some people lol.

DAY TWO OF A BRUSH A DAY OR ABAD SOTD.  Big Grin

This is a Lee Sabini brush pre M&F and probably purchased around 2008? Anyway it is the same badger as the early Rooney finest Knots. This thing is huge and luxurious and probably only the second time I have used it. This is the reason for this thread, to rediscover brushes that have been waiting patiently for me to love them again.

Freddy  I guess my goal is to revisit brushes that have not seen the light of day in quite a while and to see if they should stay or go. Heck, maybe I will find a long lost love?

NeoXerxes this will be quite the challenge for me but maybe a good dose of discipline for me.

Thank you, Nathan Merkur Man I really don't think that it is a 2 or a 3...more of a prototype. The handle measures 70mm tall and the knot is approximately 26x65 it's a monster!
