Yaqi Shaving Brushes

Seem to have a reasonable rep with synthetic tuxedo knots.

Might have to order myself one to see what it's like. Not to badly priced.

Looks decent. Only trouble is stuff from AliExpress takes about two months to get here

Yes, that's the only downside.

I nearly ordered a bunch last week, the shipping delay killed it. Very inexpensive though.

I dig those brushes. I would definitely go for one... I've had poor luck with brushes lately.

Gotta say though: my mouth has been watering for one of those Wolf Wisker brushes from the US. Unfortunaltely the shipping is more than the damn brush.

Check out these bad boys...

I see that Peter was saying that the supplier of his Black Wolf knots have changed the knot slightly and that they aren't as densely packed as the previous generation.

That's unfortunate...

They still look amazing, don't they?

Let me see if I can get a few Tuxedo samples out of her, I'll revert back as conversation progresses.

Read up a bit and it looks mostly positive. Some people get if for the handle but it's that black and white knot that generates the most interest. Bit of debate whether it is tuxedo knot or ... not. Most people seem to agree it is, but the quality control is not great and you can buy a dud with a huge glue bump. But at those prices it might be worth the risk! Their Alibaba shop has unbelievable prices if anyone wants to buy a minimum of 500 knots :lol:

Ok, she will chuck in two of each size at a few dollars a pop, I'll use a few, send me a PM if you want one and what size, and I'll see if I can accommodate you.
