    Default Lijun Brushes - any thoughts?

    Hey guys-

    I was just snooping around ebay and ran across these brushes:

    Anyone know about them? They're inexpensive - but how do they perform is the question. I searched and saw that a few have used them in the Shave of the Days, so I know they're out there!! Thanks guys!

    These look pretty nice! I would be interested as well in hearing about anyone's experiences with these..

    I just bought one of these and am totally happy with the purchase. Cannot believe how great it performs. Once I start using it, I just put my other brushes away and use this one only.

    Edit-it did take a little over 30 days to arrive-about 3 weeks to Canada but then it sat at customs for a while before it made it to my house (no duty or taxes were charged)

    I had bought a few months ago a 24mm finest badger brush from Lijun and it is amazing for about 20 bucks shipped to Canada.
    It is stiff great for face lathering as it is not floppy at all.
    Is a little of a lather hog.
    The logo is still on as the Frank's shaving brush which is also good lost the logo after 2 shaves.
    Liked this Lijun so much that i ordered two more,one for me and one for my friend.
    I have the ivory handle and the ebony which feel very expensive.
    Now you know shipping time is gonna be awhile though.
    But for the cost be patient.
    *****HAVE A GREAT SHAVE*****

    I never tried the Lijun brushes. However, Wet Shaving Products and Vintage Blades LLC each carry their own line of reasonably priced Chinese brushes that are made for them. The're in stock in the U.S. so they arrive quicker. I haven't tried these either but over at The Shave Nook forum a number of guys have given them good reviews.

    Awesome, thanks for the responses guys! I thought this thread was going to fade into oblivion after no one answered for a while. Good to hear they are good value, I'll probably get one as a Christmas gift to myself! They kind of remind me of Frank Shaving brushes (but what do I know, I haven't used either!!!). Probably just the Chinese badger connection I guess.
