sachin..How do you like the "Tubby 2??"

Best regards,

Julian
Julian, I am really enjoying this brush. The knot itself is very dense with a firm backbone and soft tips. I can compare the Tubby 2 to the Shavemac D01, I have. I will give a slight edge to the Shavemac on the backbone but the Tubby 2 definitely has softer tips of the two. I have used the brush with both soaps and creams and the Tubby 2 has been effective at creating a nice creamy lather in no time with nice flow through of the lather.

Good morning. Sunday:

Jaggerooney w/Dorco 301, #2
Rudy Vey PJ Omega boar
Trumper's Rose soap
Thayer's Lavender witch hazel
Harris Pink
C&S O&C

My best lather yet from the Trumper's Rose. It is beginning to strike me that I get better performance with the British veggie soaps when I use boar brushes. Must continue unvestigating....
Best,
Chris
