My vintage seventies #24 Plisson HMW set in plexi shown next to an ivory handled Chubby 3. You want a big brush? Accept no substitutes.

Re: Who still regularly uses 3Ts / DRH / Pens soap/cream

I'm a big fan of DR Harris Marlborough and Windsor soaps, as well as Pen's Sartorial soap and BB cream - use them regularly, and never grow tired of them.
