this was tonight's shave. the brush pictured is THE sleeper brush of my den. i prefer wildly colored handles, this one is plain white - with lettering that's wearing off, to boot. very bulby knot, and i much prefer fans. so much so, in fact, that i'm looking to trade a jade 2xl in finest for a fan shaped finest 2xl. the knot is a blonde - which can be great knots - and i generally prefer finest. so, this brush has everything going against it.
but, you know what?
every time i use it i makes me laugh because even though it has all these things going "against" it, it's easily one of the brushes i like to use most. how about you guys? what brush (or brushes) do you have that should have been traded/sold off ages ago but keeps earning its place in your rotations?
