This is a good looking handle especially considering the reasonable price.
It is relatively small and may not be hefty enough for someone with large hands. I am very pleased with it and would certainly buy another with a different knot. I have purchased from AP before and am really happy with the quality.
After purchasing the bulb version I couldn't resist trying the fan knot. 26mm set in the white and gold fleck handle proved superior in softness, backbone and a joy to lather on the face. Works well lathering in the shave bowl as well. No stink at all and great service by Andrew.
Beautiful knot, soft with backbone and of my 23 badger knots has become a favorite. Beautiful selection of handles and Andrew's great service. 24mm
Well made no shedding
What a knot ! Great knot feels amazing lathers beautifully , the best Synth I ever used. For the price range a nice little handle as well.
Great value handle , light in hand but quality fitted a 28 mm knot into it no problem and looks and feels great !!
Very nice brush. Looks great and performs great! Enough backbone to create a thick lather but quite soft on the face.
another awesome shave brush!!
A couple of years ago I ordered this brush. At first, being used to a badger brush and its feel, I wasn't sure I liked it. Recently I thought I'd give it another try . . . and I love the soft feel now! It always did lather up fine, it was the lack of "scrub" on my skin that I didn't like. But for some reason, now I love it, and have used this brush exclusively this week. A good value in a synthetic brush and handsome handle.
Loving these new Gelousy knots from AP. Apparently my customers love them also. Great product for sure!!!
26mm Gelousy SHD Fan w/ Ivory+Red Signature Series Handle
the brush i bought is great. i love it. 5 stars here
This knot is probably the the softest I have ever felt.
I just received the shipment on June the 12th. I've only had the chance to use it for the first time yesterday. I was very impressed with its performance and I'm looking forward to using it a lot more in the coming days.
The SynBad knot is the softest synthetic knot I've found to date. I have it lofted around 53mm and it has some backbone, but not enough to feel pokey when splayed. Great knot that looks nice in any handle it's set in.
Huge Knot. Very dense. Very soft. I set it shallow (just past the glue) and it doesn't hog lather. No exfoliation, so suitable for sensitive or sunburnt skin. Would readily buy the 30mm again.
The SilkSmoke fan is a different animal than the bulb shaped version. The fibers are finer, softer, and the knot has a shorter overall loft than the bulb. The shorter loft makes it the perfect knot for a shallow socket. I set mine with a free loft of 50mm and it's just about perfect from a softness and ease of splay perspective. Great synthetic knot!
First Gelousy knot for me. Now i understand what makes this a great knot. The backbone is very good even when it is soaken for a long time and the softness of the gel tips is perfect for the skin. It also holds a good amount of water due to it’s high density.
This is a nice short loft brush that loads easy, is soft and has some backbone.
What can I say a great brush , having owned and simpsons chubby 2 , silvertip and Manchurian badger brush I would say this is definitely up there with them for sure !! Super soft gel tips and good back bone of knot set to 50 mm high ( my recommendation)
This is a premium brush
The 26mm SilkSmoke fan offers a great combination of qualities. It takes about one use to "break in" the glue bump, after which the knot has a nice ability to splay without being floppy. The tips are pillowy soft and feel great against my face. The backbone is noticeable but not unduly stiff or uncomfortable. And the knot works with both a splay/scrub style and a painting style of applying lather. Great performer and very comfortable in use!
I just got the knot and have only used it once, but in love the backbone in it! It is soft, lathers well and still splays well. Matched with my lightsaber handle and I think I have a new favorite brush.
I have never been a fan of those cheap Chinese made synthetics but I contacted Andrew regarding which synthetic would work with a handle I had recently deknotted. Andrew recommended the 2BED and I received it within a few days (very quickly). It is soft with just enough backbone allowing me my desired flexibility and splay. I am now a believer in synthetics and wonder why I never tried APShaveCo before. I would recommend and use Andrew (again) because of his customer service and excellent products.
Very nice brush for sensitive skin. The handle is beautiful too and it also is affordable. Thank you Andrew, I am very happy with this one.
This is the second knot I am buying from AP Shave Co. The first was the Cashmere. All knots are of excellent quality. I installed the badger knot in Razo Rock Bruce handle because I like the shape of that particular handle, and now the brush looks and feels like the most expensive brushes manufactured by Shavemac or Thater for fraction of the price. I highly recommend this knot!
I have only used this brush once. Love the handle, feels great in the hand, and looks good too. Did a face lather nice soft brush with back bone. This brush will break in and be great.
Still not received it.
Awesome Knots as always!!
This knot is great. It seems to have slightly more backbone compared to my other synthetics. The color is also beautiful in person. I can't wait to continue using this knot.
place and order and it arrived quickly and the 2BED knot is fantastic in looks and feel, nice and dense feel to it.
This was my first badger brush after only using synthetics... You can really feel that it is a quality product, the handle in the picture didn't appeal to me but once it arrived the colors of the handle match with the brush very well, very nice look to it overall i would say. It did take me a little time to learn as synthetics are different than badger brushes, but after i adjusted my technique a little i was very very pleased with this... I have already ordered 2 more brushes from Andrew, can't wait to get them, great products!! thanks!
Bought for a gift and the recipient is highly pleased. Said it will probably become his go to brush.
This is a gorgeous looking brush. It's ergonomically great in the hand, the gel tips are very soft. This brush whips up a great lather
This knot has to be the best knot around , superb backbone and tips are the most gel like I’ve ever bought used !! Super soft but the most fantastic backbone !! Trying is believing, Andrew will custom the loft as well to suit !!
