I have all three of these brushes, the T1, T2, and now the T3. Used the T3 for the first time today and it did not disappoint. It exceeded what I was expecting. Once I loaded the brush with good old Arko soap I never had to reload again doing a 3 pass shave. At these prices I might just order another complete set for the future.
The first things I noticed about this brush were the weight and height. I’d expected a somewhat diminutive brush with a large diameter knot. Turns out this brush is actually a couple millimeters taller than my Kent BK4 but with the much bigger knot. Handle style and weight are absolutely solid in the hand.
No problem eating up some soap, easily enough for my usual two passes. Simply pleasurable on the face. Just really nice. Clean-up and dry time were easy and fast, as I’d expect for a synthetic.
Not synthetic fan or user, so can not compare to others.
Looks nice and makes a fine lather.
As always Phil is tops to deal with.
I have more than a few brushes. Badger, boar and synth. This synth version of the excellent Simpson “chubby” is a fantastic brush. It’s easily better than many of my badger hair brushes. Once these are back in stock, buy one and face lather with it! You won’t be disappointed.
