The Mandarin tips its hat to the Ever Ready Gillette style brushes of the 30's 40's and 50's.  The 22mm Beaux knot is superb offering a great synthetic with soft tips and backbone. Both have a loft of 47mm making the total brush height just 99mm.

AKA: YAQI Ever-Helpful

A shaving brush with a synthetic fibre knot is very easy to look after.

The knot will only need to be flick dried after each use, hanging the brush upside down will also assist in keeping it dry but it is not as important as with natural hair brushes.

Just treat the brush with care and avoid extremes in heat. If stored on its side, it is possible for the fibres to be "bent" if they remain in that position for a long period of time.

    I recommend this product

    What a delightful little brush, with gorgeous colours and really stiff backbone!

    In my opinion, with the Mandarin Yaqi have created the next generation synthetic brush. The handle colours of cream and orange with flecks in it make it look good enough to eat, and if ever a name was appropriate for something, this is it. The handle is nicely waisted providing a good grip, and it has a superb 22mm 3-colour G4 loft. The outstanding feature is the really stiff backbone though. Of all my synthetic brushes, this one easily has the toughest loft, able to shred a stick of hard soap, and possibly not for the faint hearted. It is like a tough old boar brush, but considerably kinder to the skin. I noticed that the visible knot appeared to be 24mm not 22mm, and took this up with WetShavingCo main man David Richardson. He patiently explained that rather than use thicker or stiffer filaments to achieve this level of backbone, Yaqi have simply inserted a 22mm loft deep into a 24mm handle. It certainly works and it might even be too stiff for some people with sensitive skin, as synthetic lofts don't really soften in water. Whatever, I like this brush a lot and predict that it will set a trend for synthetics with more backbone. Highly recommended.
