1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What are Kent and "Em's Place"?

    Isn't there a standard size brush? The Art of Shaving ones look very similar to many of the ones I've seen above, like Penhaligon's.

    www.emsplace.com - sells silvertip badgers at very good prices. I just bought one from them - definitely a step up from a regular badger. Panzer

    How does that compare with Art of Shaving stuff?

    I've never tried AoS - if I recall correctly, RJMan once said that AoS is simply rebadged Taylor's at a hefty premium.

    Art of Shaving is way over priced, and may brand you as a parvenu [​IMG] Kent was a great suggestion; won't knock your socks off, but fair priced. I alternate between a Trumper's Brush and a Simpson. I think the Simpson is the better brush. By the way, Trumpers reverses the top two grades from what all the other companies do (e.g.; best is super and super is best . . . or something like that). Has anybody examined, used, or repaired a Plisson brush?
