This past summer I bought C&E travel brush when a local store closed, got a good deal on the brush. Although the brush is not that bad, I wanted something better, because when I have to travel, I will enjoy a nice shave, too. I made myself a new brush with a faux horn handle and a 18 mm Silvertip Grade A. Great little brush, quite the face latherer (which I started since I use this little brush). This little bugger fits perfectly in the C&E travel tube. The other brush shown (next to the 7 o'clock pack) is a similar brush, but with a faux tortoise handle (also sporting a 18 mm knot).
