FS: Huge Chubby 3 with three-band Super hair SOLD!!!

I have that huge Chubby 3, just measured the knot and the loft: knot-size is a tad shy of 32 (!!) mm and the loft 52/53 mm, this brush is extremely dense. A bit too large and too dense for me, I found the max knot size I like is 26 mm for a brush. The hair is the three-band version of the Super qual...

FS: Simpson Tulip 2 in 2-Band Super - SOLD!!!

For sale is: Simpson Tulip 2 in two-band Super. I am the first owner and have used this brush in the beginning quite a bit (in a rotation of about a dozen brushes), but lately, it does not see much use anymore. I prefer the Polo 8 over it, it has a shorter loft and is more fan shaped. This T2 has lo...

I have transferred a couple of Kent BK4 knots into new handles. With Kent this is quite easy as the hair knots are in a plastic sleeve, so the hair is not attached with glue to the handle material. The same is true for Omega boar knots. The knots are sitting in a plastic sleeve as well. I even have ...

Soaps (and some Pen's and other cream samples)

No, the EF is still the dominating scent. The unscented AOS is also a good idea.

I got the Third Eye soap. As for the performance, it is good, it is in the same range as the other Italian soap tallow based soap, Cella and P.160. However, the scent of the Third Eye was supposed to be Sandalwood, and, liking Sandalwood, I ordered it. However, it does not smell like sandalwood at a...

I am also a sucker for Pen's EF soap. Luckily, I was able to score a number of the tallow first soaps that will last me quite a while. The re-formulated soap is actually not that bad at all. The scent is about the same as the tallow version. I have used a cheese grater and grated a half puck of the ...
