Using is with a cashmere brush: It's feels very soft and is a pleasure for sensitive skins. But at the same time, it performs just as good as any other high quality Knot. And the overall look is awesome.
The 28mm 2BED knot is soft tipped and very dense. I oredered it to be set at 50mm loft height and I am beyond happy with the results. The brush stays, splays and looks amazing.
Will be ordering again most certainly!
I purchased with a 28mm 2BED. This is one super soft knot! The initial flick through the strands felt softer than my well established badger and boar brushes. I was shocked. This is my second synthetic brush and my other synth was not even close to this soft. However, when it came time to lather up, it has a very sturdy backbone that holds up to aggressive face lathering. In my first use I had one loose hair. In my subsequent uses (up to 5 now) nothing else has come out. Very well done knot. I opted for the loft recommendation by AP and I don't know what magic number he went with but it feels really good and performs really good. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a big knot, good for loading lots of soap and has a sturdy backing that can hold up to a good amount of soap/lather/water - well done AP, well done!
Beautiful in every respect. Dense yet soft, and the handle is simple but very well made. I give 4/5 stars because loft was asked to be 58mm, I see it in the vicinity of 55mm. Regardless, I am a user of APShave Co. brushes since the early days and can attest that quality keeps increasing steadily - which solidifies my confidence in their work. Many thanks for a great product, terrific value for $$$.
