I’m probably due for a new brush. The Tony Forsyth auction brush is showing it’s age. Will add Yaqi to my list. How does it compare to say a Paladin?

They both are good brush producers. For the price you could have 10 Yaqi brushes or 1 Paladin. I have silvertip badger brushes from both companies and honestly cannot tell a difference between performance. Value for money vs performance on both synthetic and badger knot brushes, Yaqi is very hard to beat

In saying that and knowing what I know now, I would forget the above options and obtain a custom brush made to your own specifications with advice and guidance from great local artisans brush makers such as TF Customs or Forgotten Art. I know TF Customs has a live YouTube channel where you can participate in the making of your own brush. I can attest to the quality of both TF Customs and Forgotton Art shaving brushes as being very high quality.
