    last year when I sold my FS Finest brush. It was probably the one I liked most of my badgers. I had gotten caught up in Synthetics and thought I wouldn't use Badgers again cuz, of course, I thought Synthetics are the best ever

    WRONG!

    Synthetics are great and I use them just about every day with wonderful results. But recently I used a couple of my badgers again and totally enjoy it. It was nice to get the different feel and action.

    So the moral is, for me, just enjoy the shave with whichever tool you choose. But keep those favorites close

    Don't worry ... I'm sure you'll find another, but it is a lesson learned. :)

    I have sold and replaced things also. Feel dumb every time.

    You can always replace the brush if you choose to do so. No worries. :happy088:

    I've gone through quite a few brushes to come up with a small number of favorites, which include several badgers, one big Omega boar, and a Tuxedo synthetic.

    I made the comment today that I replaced a razor I got rid of because I missed it. We all do that at times.

    I'm a badger lover, I've experiments so many different brushes from badger, boar and synthetic from 22mm all the way to 30mm knot, believe me, it took me a long while to find my brush face lather style and I choose finest badger 24, 26 and 30mm knot size.

    I only have one boar, one synthetic and 12 finest badger brushes in my den

    My place is just cluttered with stuff like that. I know if I clean something out I will need it the next week.
