I purchased this brush from the Sydney store 4 weeks ago and have used it travelling for the last 3.5 weeks. It has consistently achieved a good lather only using a very cheap Palmolive shaving stick. I recommend it to anyone on the go but it will not replace my 'home' brush due to it's size.
I recently added this little brush to my travel kit and wont ever be leaving home without it. If you care about how you look and feel either for business or leisure then I thoroughly recommend you using this brush. Produces an exceptional lather for a great shave.
