  1. Good brush to have in your Den

    Posted by Jason C. on 3rd Aug 2017

    This brush is little bit floppy is not too bad because the knot type is not the same as a Plissoft synthetic fibre as the RazoRock Plissoft "BEEHIVE", however, the knot size and loft height are both the same this brush doesn't have the same backbone and density as the RazoRock Plissoft "BEEHIVE".

    The RazoRock Plissoft "BEEHIVE" 28/63mm is the real winner sorry Stray Whisker, all I can say is you're very close and I'll keep this brush in my shaving rotation thank you.

  2. Great brush

    This brush is a lather monster, soft but with some backbone, very useful for head shaving.

  3. Ticks all the boxes for a great synthetic brush

    Posted by Brian on 13th Feb 2017

    I bought this brush a little while back and left it sit for a while. This morning I decided to give it a go. I grabbed my bowl of Tabac, a 'Chrome Series Rockwell 6S setup with an R3 plate loaded with a Gillette 'Silver Blue' and set to work. I soaked the the 452/28 in some warm water for 10 seconds, shook it vertically three times and started to load the unbloomed puck.

    This brush easily picks up lather and stores it nicely in the bulb of the brush without losing much to the knot base at all. The face lather told the whole story though. This 28mm knot is brilliant. it has decent backbone without being as obnoxiously stiff as a 24mm "Plissoft" and has the splayability without the floppiness of my Stirling 'Kong' - for me this is shave brush nirvana right off the bat.

    This combination is supremely comfortable. The brush feels crazy soft and generates absolutely ridiculous amounts of perfectly hydrated lather without having to think about it. It willsplay a little or a lot with linearly applied pressure as required. No resistance point whatsoever.

    Con, whoever produced this setup for you got it totally right! (on my face anyway). I own all sorts of synthetics - Plison style, Ubersoft knots (I & II) , Edwin Jagger, Omega, an a few others and I have to say all of them must now prostrate themselves before the '452/28' . even my Savile Row 3326 feels like a little less comfortable after using this brush. (and that thing is my pillowy soft badger brush of choice

    Well done Con mate! This brush is a winner. I'll be ordering another for travel, no worries there! A great investment for fans of synthetics.

  4. My new favourite brush.

    The 28mm is big. It is really BIG.
    So not many people will find it comfortable.

    In this case stick to 24mm instead. However I like the size. It is very soft and holds lots of soap - enough for six or even more passes.

    Excellent value for money.

  5. Excellent brush

    Posted by Greg on 12th Nov 2016

    This is quite a big brush, and it does a fantastic job.

    Very good face feel, good backbone, holds an absolute ton of lather.

    Fantastic value for the price.
