Vie-Long Maroon Tulip with Fibersoft Knot
Vie-Long has really advanced the synthetic fiber market with their Fibersoft series brushes. The knots have a really soft face feel with medium backbone and much less "springiness" than some of the other synthetics. They work great with both hard soaps and creams.
Knot Diameter: 24mm
Knot Loft: 52mm
Overall Height: 106mm

This brush has very soft tips, but has just enough backbone to not be floppy. It lathers soaps quite efficiently. For comparison, it is not as soft as the ”plisson” type fibers, but definitely softer than the silvertip fibre found in the Muhle/Edwin jagger brushes. No glue bump. The fibers are not densely packed, so the brush has great flow through but also holds plenty of lather. I get 3 passes, plus several clean/touch up passes, without having to go back to the soap (I’m a face latherer and I don’t shave my head, so YMMV). This is currently my favorite go-to brush.
This is a nice brush. I like the color and the style. The synthetic knot creates great lather.
