Lol I speak it perfectly!

But yes, it’s not so easy to learn - it takes a good amount of effort.

Hi all,

We have been working with a new brush maker , and after much trials and testing, the first three brushes are ready for sale. The knots in these are plisson style synthetic fan knots. They have super soft tips and veyr good backbone. In our testing we found it best to set the loft the quite high (it's a sin tm choke up these knots :P ). The loft on these brushes is between 53 and 52 mm. The handle height is approciamtely 50mm, and the knot diameter is 22mm


Thanks again for your support :)

After much trials and testing, we are pleased to annouce RVT all natural shave brish cleaning soap! Removes soap scum, lather residue, and dirt from natural and synthetic shave brushes.

https://www.bidorbuy.co.za/item/4100623 ... 130_g.html


Finally got to try this out. Followed the instructions and it will be tempting to try shave with this lather. My brushes generally stay quite clean with at most a slight buildup of soap where the handle meets the knot. The knots all felt much softer while wet, and after drying returned to their normal state. Pleased with the product and likely to do an annual clean with this. Would be interesting to see what this does on razors as well that need a deep clean.

Very cool collection of brushes JeGreen! Glad the soap worked well. It did wonders in bringing some of my older neglected brushes back to life.
