A firm bristled brush with a large and comfortable handle packs tons of value and performance.
Country of Manufacture: Italy
Type: Boar Bristle
This shaving brush ensures a perfect shave. The high quality of the bristles, their greater length and stiffness quickly turn shaving soap or cream into a luscious lather.
W:1-1/2" Across Base
Good brush for the money, had a few folded over bristles and strays that were too long. Easy enough to clean them up. Chrome handle is very attractive. A solid brush that works great at making a lather
1st- This Brush is Huge!!!
That is not a bad thing at all.
It Looks Pretty Great in My Humble Shave Den.
2nd - I figured it would be very stiff and scratchy (I raised Pigs among the many animals on our family's ranch while I was growing up and their 'hair' was stiff and kind of scratchy feeling) BUT the bristles on this brush are NOT like that at all.
It is a very soft brush and feels very nice on the neck and face.
3rd - I have heard that there is 'break-in' period that is necessary with this type of brush where the bristles will eventually curl and split over time making it feel softer and aiding with grabbing & lifting neck & facial hair.
I found that mine seemed to start curling after the 1st shave and then started to split within the next couple of shaves.
It is already very soft and I can't wait to see how much more soft it will get with time.
4th - The Smell!!!
OK, there is a smell to a Boar Bristle Brush which I was not prepared for (having only used a Badger Hair Brush prior to this) and at 1st it was a bit unsettling but it has grown on me with time to the point that I actually like the way it smells now.
5th - There has been virtually no shedding at all!!!
It seems to be very well made.
So, i can easily say that I Highly recommend this Brush.
It is a wonderful addition to my humble shave den and it is very affordable.
Shave On, My Brothers!!!
I love this brush ecspecially for not only m face but i shave my head too and its my favorite brush for head lathering! Very soft and its deffinitely a great painting brush too
Hi all, I haven't used this brush very long but so far it has been a good purchase. It has only let go three bristles whereas my drug store badger brush from a well-known company gives out bunches of bristles every time I use it so I quit using it. I give this brush 4 stars for this reason as well as it feels good while holding it and the best part is that it loads really well too. I'm hoping and believing it will only get better from here. I would definitely recommend this brush to anyone.
I bought this because of a review on the Internet, amazing, incredible, super soft! I believe now. I had to break it in but after a week, I feel its almost as soft as my fine badger brush. I hope it continues to soften though.
Title says it all. I have been using this brush for a month, in that time it’s only lost one hair and that was during the initial break in/conditioning. Brush loads hungrily and makes lather like a charm and feels great against the face. Has huge handle that is comfortable to hold and doesn’t slip easily. (Thanks to Tiffanyanne for awesome customer service) I would recommend this brush to anyone who wet shaves regardless of experience.
