I'm coming around on the Synbad now that I'm giving it a fair shake. The handle is too short, but this could otherwise be my only brush.

At the risk of seeming redundant

Synbad in WD handle
Homemade soap
Rockwell 6S Plate R4
Gillette Platinum blade
Homemade splash
Guerlain Vetiver

I've been using the same batch of homemade soap for about 8-9 days now, and I haven't used a brush other than this Synbad all week. It's really growing on me, and I may order one with a longer handle and make it the daily driver. Good splay, nice feel, superb lathering capability. Still doesn't feel like natural hair, but at this point, if it works, it works.
Regards,
Tim

Here we go again.

Synbad
Homemade soap
Rockwell 6S R4
Gillette Platinum
Homemade splash
Homemade bay rum edt

I have actually ordered a longer handle for the Synbad knot. I think I may wind up keeping this, a mixed knot, one Omega, and an inexpensive badger, and selling the rest of the brushes. Great brush.

Tim

Synbad

Great blades. The Tiz is incredibly smooth and sharp; smoother than a US Personna Med Prep and possibly as sharp. Looking at longevity as the week goes on, but they are impressive.

Tim
