Yes, I wasn't complaining, just curious whether p.b getting his meant mine was soon to arrive as well. Turns out it wasn't, but I finally got it today! Ten weeks, almost a Jules Verne adventure journey!Sorry guys yes shipped by surface mail - that's all there is AND the reason the brush was half price.
I've already shaved for the day, but I did a test lather because the knot is quite misshaped from the travel. Didn't change much, I guess it will take a few uses to "de-flatten". The handle seems pretty comfortable to hold. Can't wait for a proper use tomorrow!
