Crown King "Checkmate" Suave 26mm Synthetic Shaving Brush - Faux Antique Ivory

Crown King

$29.95 USD 

The Checkmate is a rather handsome piece of shaving hardware; a solid brush, a good weight, great balance and feels extremely comfortable in the hand. The Suave Synthetic Teddy Bear Hair knot will be reminiscent of a certain other brush on the market currently but quite denser, larger, and more tightly packed, plus set deeper to provide more back bone. Then there is the Faux Antique Ivory handle, a truly striking feature, a more elegant touch you would expect on a much more costly brush.

I first saw this brush at the Old Town Pasadena meet up a couple of weeks ago and couldn't get it out of my mind. I was impressed by the back bone that it had,considering that it was a synthetic. It was so soft that I ended up asking Douglas himself if it indeed was synthetic. It's big and has considerable weight to it, and I love the way it fits in my hand. Performance is great, everything i expected and more. To date I have only used it with only my PAA and Crown King soap collection ( which is formidable) during testing, yet this morning I used it in the shower during my shave and was blown away with the shear amount of soap/lather it holds. My third pass was just and thick and slick as my first. Then there is the price. You're going to have to pay more to get this level of preformance and quality from other Synthetic.
