I obtained a T2 a couple of weeks ago and it really is a great wee brush.I added a T2 to my T3 a few weeks ago. The more I use these brushes the more impressed I am. If I was just starting wet shaving I wouldn’t dream of spending a small fortune on a badger brush. The present crop of synthetic brushes are all you need for a perfect shave. If you have scruples about cruelty to badgers you have your answer. If you are an addictive, obsessive collector carry on spending and enjoy your badger brushes. I’ll continue to use mine but the synths will be in the rotation too.
