Arrived from Shanghai this morning. Super soft, heavy, beautiful brush.

welcome to the forum vegasvics. I have a couple of the Forest brushes and I really like them. Have had no shedders and the bristles are great.

I just ordered a 24mm as an upgrade from my Parker pure badger brush. I can't wait to see how soft it is in comparison. I find the Parker irritating and irritating to my face.

Hair looks nice, they seem to be improving in quality.

Prices went up as well.

Others have reported that the newer brushes are packed denser too:)

I have been using the same brush for a while. At the beginning, it did shed a fair bit, which was worrisome, but now it's stopped that and it is performing wonderfully.

Got mine a couple weeks ago. Decent backbone but nice and soft tips!

I have been using Frank Shaving brushes several years. Their finest badger are really great. Never shed.

I wonder how much backbone this brush has. Frank Shaving brushes seem to lean toward the floppy side, to me. Mine do. Just curious.
