They sell a line of brushes that range from around $50 to over $200. The $50 brush seemed like something you might find on the clearance rack at K-mart, and so I passed. The $200 brush seemed like one I would enjoy using, but didnt want to spend anywhere near that amount. The prices at the store were ridiculous I felt, so I left the store and came home to Amazon and found this product, the silvertip badger brush. I ordered it at once, and it promptly arrived just two or three days later. As it was my first brush, I really didn't have much to compare it to, that is until I went back to The Art of Shaving Store and realized that its actually nicer than their $200 model. On mine, the bristles are softer, the fit and finish is better, and the bristles stay put (the one at the store that they were trying to sell me appeared to be shedding).
This shave brush is a great weight... thats the first thing I noticed when I picked it up. Its like that line from the movie Snatch when Boris is discussing a gun with another character in a Russian accent that "heavy means quality." It just sinks into your hand and stays there, like it was meant to be there. You dont have to be a super heavyweight champion to operate this thing, but its a positive full feeling.
The next great thing about the brush are the bristles (of course).Read more ›
Everyone has his own method, but if you're new to this game, here's mine: Fill half the basin of your sink with the hottest water you can get out of the tap, and place a mug full of this water in the basin. (this allows the mug itself to heat up, which will keep the lather warmer longer.) Let the mug and the brush soak in this water for about two minutes. Squeeze most of the water out of the brush, and swirl your brush in some shaving soap, 4-5 rotations, like you're mixing with a paint brush. No need to overdo it. Then empty most of the hot water out of the mug, saving just enough water to coat the bottom of the mug, and work up a warm, thick lather in the mug, adding water as needed. Then come back and write a review of the best shave of your life.
If you want bang for your buck this is it. Just as another reviewer stated the first thing you notice about this brush is the weight. I believe the handle is completely solid, I would guess its a solid 5 or 6 ounces. Its almost weapon quality. The actual brush itself is wonderful, it holds *almost* as much water as my $100+ brushes, at half the price!
Although this brush does not carry much weight on the shave forums because it would be considered "cheap" HUGE mistake. You are getting Ferrari performance on Honda money. A great buy.
***Most importantly, the seller is personable AND responds to e-mails*** That alone makes it a worthwhile purchase.
I highly recommend this shaving brush and Parker Shaving. I will be ordering a heavyweight razor and stand from Parker Shaving soon. They seem like a classy old school kind of company, selling classy old school kind of products.
UPDATE 3/3/16 *** OK, so 3 and a half years later and still going strong! This is such a great product. I never expected it to last this long since I use it daily on my head and face. I am going to buy a new one just to be sure I have it for when it does get worn out from use.
