Hi all,

Something new from Wriggly Tin: Coffee, CedarWood and Litsea shave soap. A clean earthy scent with woody notes, and a dash of citrus. Very nice indeed. :)

The Barber pro has a denser knot, and the handle is bigger. It's a more classic barber style brush.

Thank you very much Mo.
if you say denser what do you mean? Is it thinner bristles? Both are 27mm and also the same loft. Sorry for the stupid questions but im still very new to this.

The knots diameteris the same but the 10098 has more boar bristles in the knot. I meant to say It is packed a bit more densely.
