I bought this brush as the cost of getting all of the equipment for wet shaving was large. First, this brush is better then a Boars hair brush. As we actually were given a kit with one that started me on this path. Right after receiving mine. My roommate was given the "best badger." There is a HUGE difference. Especially after using it repeatedly. The larger surface area of the Best is great for making a quicker& thicker lather and the brush holds more water. This brush shed a little bit, but now the outside bristles are getting crimped and wearing already. While the Best is still in perfect shape.

I would really recommend just making the jump to a 50-70$ brush. Do it now and save your self from buying two. I have also found that the safety razors are a closer shave by far. Combined with a good soap and man what a difference. Ingrown hairs have become a thing of the past. My skin is in great shape and it feels so smooth! Good choice on your switch the wet having. Its not only something you will enjoy, trust me!

Best regards

Ken R.

For a good shave you need a good brush and this is it. Creates a rich full lather even though the handle is a bit small for big hands. Unfortunately bigger ones cost twice as much. A good deal for the price.

I have always liked shaving with soap and lather; I feel like I've done my face a favor. This shaving brush has given me the best lather I've ever been able to get from a brush. The quality of the shaving brush is outstanding. I'm sure to be using this item for quite some time to come.

I recently replaced a 10-year-old Colonel Conk badger brush with this Porter's badger brush, and I'm glad I did.

The old brush was my first ever shaving brush and it gave me, as I said, 10 years of satisfactory service. While this Porter's brush is in the same price range it definitely performs better.

The plastic handles seem nearly identical on both brushes. The size and shape means this brush fits my hand perfectly as well as my brush stand .

The bristles are approximately the same size and shape as my old brush, but these seem to hold hot water better, and therefore seems to lather better and feels warm on my face when I apply the shaving cream. The bristles are a good balance of softness on the skin and stiffness (for control). I have used it to apply Proraso, Musgo, and Old Spice shaving creams, all with similar satisfactory results.

Value
From what I have read, a shaving brush is a very personal thing, and opinions vary widely as to what is the "perfect brush." I have tried other badger brushes, and I also own a boar bristle brush. IMO, this brush offers very a good value. I paid around $35 here on Amazon.

If you haven't used a badger brush before, you're in for a treat. Applying shaving cream is incredibly smooth and provides an even coat of lather every time. There's no irritation, tickle, or stray bristle during application.

The brush does have some cons to it. Most noticeable is the odor. Odor on a new brush is typical and should go away after a few uses. But for now, it smells like wet badger. The packaging recommends washing the brush with soap suds. I simply brushed it onto a bar of soap a few times and washed it off. I blame most of my odor problems on my shaving cream though (Proraso, Eucalyptus and Menthol -- avoid at all costs, it smells like a wet dog). Additionally, the brush should be allowed to dry upside down after each use, otherwise you'll get stray ends or even mildew. I believe holders are sold for such a thing, but one was not provided. I was fortunate enough to have a shower mirror with razor holders that works though.

The badger hair bristles are great for applying a consistent lather. However, I was disappointed to find that the handle is constructed of a rather light weight plastic. I had hoped for a heavier feel to the handle. Otherwise, a good deal for the price.

Nothing like lathering up with a brush. This thing feels great against my skin in the mornings. The only detractor is the handle. There are marks where the handle was cast, this was unexpected considering the price I paid but it's not really noticeable. It works great and feels great.

I have worn a beard for years - not because I prefer the look, but because shaving has been intolerable until recently. Scrapes, cuts, ingrown hairs, razor burn... all commonplace with a modern multi-blade razor and canned cream setup. I recently purchased this brush, along with a Merkur 178 DE razor, and Wilkinson Sword blades. I must say, never have I had a better shave! Close, clean, irritation free! I don't know that I will ever wear a beard again!
