Used the bush for lathering for my head shave. Great knot. Going to get another brush with a little more Loft.
Beautiful brush and extremely soft with a great backbone! Perfect mix of softness and backbone!
This.....is an awesome brush, and is just knock out gorgeous in the shave den! It's got a soft....soft cashmere knot that holds a boat load of lather! I've recently bought my 2nd brush from AP Shave.....and I have my eye on a 3rd brush....I'll have this one ordered by the end of the month! Although I have 6-8 badger brushes.....but my wife is sooo distressed! I'm now going all synthetic.....and AP Shave is the go to brush company!

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.
