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!
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 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.
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.Read more ›

Keeps its shape very well despite months of aggressive daily use and frequent trips in a travel bag.Published 6 months ago by Brian
Incredibly durable, yet soft on the face. After 6 months of using this, I can't imagine going back to pressurized canned creams.Published 13 months ago by Patrick Grgurich
Nothing like lathering up with a brush. This thing feels great against my skin in the mornings. The only detractor is the handle. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Randy
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. Read morePublished on December 2, 2013 by NorEaster
