    Please note all resin colours are to supplied as a full link into the 'comments' box. If you pay by paypal you are charged extra due as opposed to the credit card option as has been the case with previous group buys. I also believe VAT is deducted for those applicable at checkout.


    Thank you once again for your consideration.

    I could very well be interested in this, @Nishy I might need to speak to you more by PM as you know how new I am to the brush game if you would be so willing...

    Whenever and wherever, I would be happy to help. What I will do perhaps this weekend is list all my brushes and a detailed analysis of each, which I hope will help others in understanding the virtues of each.

    Excellent news Nishy.

    I have to say, I love the 400 homage handle design. Chubby types are also great.

    That would be an amazing starting point actually. Thank you as always for being so willing to help. Said it before and I'll say it again, you're a pleasure and have been influential in my shaving journey along with others on this forum!

    Thanks Nico, what I will do is perhaps after collecting ideas, put up a poll to confirm choices :)

    No worries my friend, it's always a pleasure. I have had unpleasant experiences spending hundreds on certain brushes and not getting a quality product. Hence these group/LE buys, hopefully allowing others to experience how a quality badger brush should perform.

  10. I loved the 400 you are showing on that thread. I'm thinking 400 flat top :wink:

    I definitely wouldn't rule out another 400!

    I think Nico has the best flat top, although a black m7 with flat top would look stunning.
    @Nico1970 how does the flat top feel on the face?

    It is breaking in nicely @Nishy and has developed a wonderfully uniform splay as you can see below.

    There is still quite a bit of backbone which means that you really feel it on the face, however, this makes face lathering a breeze. I expect the backbone to reduce with increased usage. The hair quality is absolutely top shelf and I can feel no discernible scritch at all.

    It also is a soap monster - easily picking up enough product for 2-3 passes without going back to the tub.
