DFS 2018 LE Brush is now live. Read more here!!

My first order direct from Shavemac.

26x50 Silvertip D01 2Band
Flat Top
Rubberset 400 type handle in Abyss

I've wanted a flat for a while. They just look so unique. And the abyss color has a lot of shiny pearlescent that's hard to capture. I'm really smitten with this brush.

I don't see that handle option on the Shavemac website. Did you send them a handle from a different maker?

Someone on another forum got one made so I asked Berndt if he could do it. I didn't order through the Shavemac site.

Its a beauty for sure, have you used it yet? I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the flat top aspect as opposed to the bulb. I have a fan shaped (sort of flat top) Thater that I quite like and it performs much differently than the bulb shape Thaters. Floppier but in a good way, it can whip up a lather like nobody's business.
Beautiful brush, Sleeper!

Marko, I've got several flat tops, and have grown fond of them, as I find they work well for face lathering. The bulb-shaped brushes just don't do it for me for face lathering, but fine for bowl lathering. Something about the 'bulge' in the brush-I don't get the 'wall of badger' feeling I like. A hybrid like the Simpson Chubby shape, works well for me either for face (most of my shaves) or bowl (once in a while) lathering.
All the best,

Michael P

I haven't used it yet. I'm currently working on a 30mm Manchurian Brad Sears.
I prefer fan over bulb and I wanted to see who this would compare. I'll probably dig into it next month (I do this weird 30 day rotation thing... I don't know why...)

Beautiful brush! Congrats!

I would be interested in your thoughts once you have a chance to use the brush.
