Boar Bristle Shave Brush

17.00

Anyone that uses a shaving cream soap knows that the quality of the brush is just as important as the quality of the soap. Brushes can be made of synthetic bristle, boar bristle, or badger bristle, and are priced anywhere from $5 to over $800. This brush is, I believe, the best shave brush to be found for under $20. It can't be beat as a starter brush, but it is also fine enough to become your favorite brush.

The knot is tightly packed with 100% natural boar bristle, in a traditional bulb style. The natural bristle is able to hold a great deal of water versus synthetic bristles, which is vital to building a great lather. While badger brushes are best for lathering directly on the skin, boar bristles lather best directly in the mug or tin and then "painted" onto the skin. Boar bristle is naturally stiff before being used for the first time, and it is not uncommon to break a bristle or two. But upon use the bristles soften, begin to hold water, and become more flexible. This brush is capable of producing a beautiful lather using any of my shave soaps.
