A great shave starts with a great shaving brush. Badger hair has been used to create the best shaving brushes for over two centuries, owing to its high water retention properties. When combined with hot water and a high quality shaving cream or soap, a rich and creamy lather is whipped-up. This cleanses the skin, lifts the beard hair, and creates a silky path for the razor to follow. Badger hair shaving brushes come in four different grades; Pure Badger, Best Badger, Super Badger and Silver Tip Badger. Synthetic shaving brushes are also available.
