My favorite is the Cashmere but the Synbad comes in second, not far from it!
Brush with soft tips yet with a very strong backbone.
Super soft brush, holds water well, makes lather instantly and great coverage with the 30MM size.
This 24mm SynBad has been excellent for face lathering. Great price, and cruelty-free!
The know is perfect, the size is ideal for either bowl or face lather. The brush is soft and yet has a great back bone, not too stiff and not too soft. I surprised by the quality of the badger hair, top notch.
I have had the 24mm SynBad brush I for about two weeks now, and I cannot be happier with my purchase. At first I thought the knot was too small, but it splays wonderfully, even with a firm backbone, and distributes lather evenly across my face. It holds water and lather very well, and retains heat from my scuttle. I can say with confidence that I will be a repeat customer in the future.
This is my second SynBad. I bought one right when they first came out on here, and have paired it against Tuxedos, Cashmeres, numerous 2-band and silvertip badgers, etc. Genuinely, this is the best shaving brush knot I have found by a long shot. It holds water and lather well, perfect backbone, and as soft as the Cashmere. At this point, unless AP shutters the business, I won't be using any other brush.
After a couple years I've worn my first one out, though most of the damage came from my toddlers getting hold of it and "shaving." Overall, it holds up very well.
I have probably 20 brushes. They are mostly all synthetic as that has become my preference. This Synbad brush quickly became my favorite. Great looking, lathers like a champ and soft on the face - yet, has enough backbone.
This brush lathers very well, much better than my previous synthetic brush did. I honestly did not know it was possible and blamed my lack of lather on my previous brush on the fact it was synthetic. It is well made, have not experienced shedding, and very soft. My only regret is not buying this brush sooner.
This is my second synthetic brush from AP Shave Co. and it did not disappoint! I've been very happy with my SynBad knot, but wanted to try something with a bit more splay and the 2BED certainly delivers. I tend to face lather and the balance between splay and backbone of the 2BED makes it well suited for that. I've been consistently impressed with the quality of the knot, and the imitation badger combined with the cream marble handle also make for a truly nice looking brush.
24MM SynBad w/ Winter Handle - Extra Dense Shaving Brush - Cream/Brown - Imitation Badger
oday I tried out the brush in the work. Perfectly whips up the foam and keeps a sufficient amount of foam, sufficient for three passes . And also does a little facial massage. Everything is just super.
An absolutely great knot. Feels great on the face, medium back bone but splays nicely. Don't hesitate to put this knot into one of your favourite handles! Will be buying more in the future.
An awesome, dense 24 mm brush that blooms larger then some 26 mm I have.
Great brush, I have two Apshaveco co brush with SynBad node and SilkSmoke. SilkSmoke 28mm has a larger spine in contrast to SynBad, dense padding and soft tips.
Fast shipping and excellent communication throughout. The brush quality is outstanding!
I'm relatively new to badger brushes but I did my research and started with a Maggards SHD knot and I really liked it. I wanted to try a bulb knot and this was the one. It has the great backbone I wanted and even more density and great face feel than my Maggard's which is also pretty great. I have since ordered a 24mm in a handle from you and I'm hoping it is just as great.
The 2BED knot looks just like a 2 band badger knot with the feel of a SynBad knot. One advantage 2BED has over of SynBad is the fan shape. As a result of the shape, the knot splays very easily. The fiber tips are soft and mid to low on backbone. I don't find this knot to be more or less sense than my other APShaveCo knots, however that could be a result of the finer fibers. This is the perfect knot if you want a natural look, but prefer synthetics.
All of the APShaveCo knots I've tried are fantastic and silksmoke follows suit. The silksmoke knot has mid to firm backbone with soft tips. It's comfortable for face lathering and splays without much effort. It would be suitable for bowl lathering as well. Great knot, great price, from a great company.
My favorite knot by far. Silky soft, but enough structure to load any type of soap (including triple milled pucks). Holds water decently, but doesn't hog lather or fling it around.
I have yet to try anything better (for me).
Love this brush. Takes a bit of effort to get it to dry since it's so dense, but it's worth it
Very soft knot. Not for everyone, but great for bowl lathering creme!
Just a beautiful knot with a perfect blend of softness and backbone.
I have been struck lately by butterscotch handled brushes, and also the look of tuxedo synthetic knots. Low and behold! AP had a butterscotch handle on sale as well as a tuxedo knot. Andrew was kind enough to glue the knot into the handle at no additional cost. This brush is not absolutely gorgeous, it also handles lather chores wonderfully! Badger-soft tips with moderate backbone; will keep me reaching for this brush exclusively! ( where do I post the pictures?)
I really like the Tuxedo knot, which has more backbone.
Great size, beautiful, what's to ask more?
Great knots at an amazing price! Knots are great looking and fully live up to their descriptions.
Awesome brush!! Comparable to my Simpson super badger and I never in a million years expected to say that about a synthetic brush.
Softer than my ball skin
Good quality gear soft as my balls very impressed!
Perfect made, shape, colors. Pleasent to use and owe.
I wish this handle gets added to the lineup!
Beautiful, and a delight to use!
I love this brush and all it stands for. Definitely recommend
The Best! Excellent quality. Quick shipping.
Excellent brush, no sign of any faults in manufacture. Works very well.
Despite being a factory second with a couple of minor "defects", I love that brush, there's no problem at all with it!
