Please note, this product has been revised according to customer requirements.Seeing as how I PIFed my original No6 away, I just had to get a new one... well, so I told myself at least.
Now, more quality, and aesthetics
In use the new No6 is more or less indistinguishable as the original No6 - good backbone, good flow, very little scratching. It'll make lather just as good as a more expensive brush, but you'll find it'll hold less of it - more than enough for two passes though.
There is - as it was with the original No6 and the No7 - some discussion online as to the nature of the knot - horse or pig. Personally I suspect it's a case of 'whatever we can find', but since Turkey is a predominately Muslim country I lean towards horse. Or at least partly horse - my original No6 certainly smelled rather strongly of stables, but a few hand lathers fixed that.
There is also a lot of indications that the quality control can be at best spotty - some users reports their brushes developing a 'crater' in the middle after a while. But for a brush costing about the same as a cup of coffee, can you expect perfection?
To repeat what I said in my original review; the No6 would be an excellent first brush for a newbie not wanting to spend much money on a new hobby. It'll would also be a good "first horse" for more experienced shavers who wants to try something new. Or you could simply get one just for the fun of it - letting you get one more brush in your rotation without laying out more money than you would for a cup of coffee.
Can you afford not to try one?
