The picture is totally misleading.
Elisabeth
Bristles are too hard for a "medium" bristle and is not something that I will use.
Jamey Reynolds
Within a week the bristles were falling out and the paint around them was gone.

Ouch.

Other reviewers have said that Swissco natural bristle toothbrushes are softer than regular nylon bristle toothbrushes, and that if you want a soft natural-bristle toothbrush, get one labelled "medium."

Boy, are they wrong.

After buying this brush, using it twice and then nursing a set of ravaged gums for three days, I decided it was better suited for cleaning small glass bottles and the nibs of my calligraphy pens. I am not putting it in my mouth again.

I have since learned that Swissco toothbrushes are coded extra-soft, soft and medium, with medium being the hardest. I'd say the "medium" brush I bought was comparable in feel to the hardest "extra-hard" nylon bristle brush I've ever used, and since I wanted a soft brush, I should have opted for the one Swissco calls "extra-soft." Unfortunately, the wooden handled brushes only come with "medium" bristles.*

Live and learn, I guess. But it would make more sense for Swissco to use a coding standard in accord with most people's dental hygiene experiences.

Still, it is a lovely brush, warm yet minimalist, almost Japanese in its natural look and Zen-like austerity.

*Softer natural bristles are available on Swissco's "tortoise" and "white horn" handled toothbrushes, both of which are actually plastic. This wood-handled "medium" bristled entity is the only all-natural toothbrush that Swissco makes.

As another reviewer explained, the head on the brush is too large to fit comfortably in your mouth and the bristles are way too hard. I could not even finish brushing my teeth when I tried to use it because it was so uncomfortable. Plus it comes in a plastic container (not marked as recyclable) which is not helpful if you are buying this product to reduce your plastic consumption. I would instead recommend the Brooks Pearwood Boar Bristle, a very similar product in the same price range that has a smaller head and much softer bristles.

The toothbrush is great; however, the presentation is misleading. I had no idea I was only ordering one toothbrush. The picture gives the impression that there were five (5) toothbrushes in the package.

I really found this to be a good brush for what I was looking for, a naturally made toothbrush with strong bristles to combat build up of plaque.

However, I would not recommend this for people with small mouths as the brush is quite large and even at 6'0 I find it quite big for my size.

Good product for those who may be allergic or sensitive to plastic toothbrushes. If you normally use a soft brush, order the medium in the natural brushes as they wear quicker and the bristles soften easily.

Within a week the bristles were falling out and the paint around them was gone. Save your time and money and just buy the plastic ones. There's a reason 99% of toothbrushes are not made from wood.

Not impressed with the stiffness of the bristles, it literally feels like I am brushing my teeth with a wire brush meant for cleaning a BBQ. NO JOKE. Ick! Design is nice, if not HUGE, but I just can't get past the bristles. I bought these to replace my Brooks brand toothbrush (http://www.amazon.com/Brooks-Pearwood-Boars-Bristle-Toothbrush/dp/B000VUYQOA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330245229&sr=8-1)which was perfect and was not so stiff but I think I will be going back to them after all (I actually found them on another website for much cheaper but I cant remember the name of the site so will have to go searching for it again I guess.) My only real regret is I bought one for each in my family. Unless I want my kids to be scarred for life I will not be giving these to them or they might avoid tooth brushing forever. OY, live and learn....

I love this toothbrush. This is the third time I have bought it for both my husband and I. Because it's wood and boar hair it lasts quite a long time. Though you may get the occasional loose bristle this has held up for months and months and the only reason I replace it is because I feel I should after a certain time, not because it broke down. Because it's made of natural materials I can feel good about tossing it in the compost.

Some folks say the bristles are too hard, and indeed they are quite stiff. You need to soften them by running under water for more than half a second, kinda like when you first get a new body brush. The bristles WILL break in after a short period of time, and until then I just brush gingerly. I make homemade toothpaste using coconut oil. This is the only natural bristle toothbrush that does not fall apart after 2 weeks of using my oil based toothpaste and for that I love it.

The head is large, after all you can't expect to whittle wood down to nothing and have it still be functional. However, it is not unmanageable. I am 5' 4" and have a small mouth - and I have no problem reaching the very back teeth.

You can't expect to go to something made of radically different materials and have the identical experience as with a plastic toothbrush. I like that I'm not putting plastic in my mouth, and boar bristles are simply far superior to nylon in their cleaning power. The only reason I give this 4 stars is for the price, $10 is quite high for a toothbrush. But I care a great deal about this kind of thing and it lasts quite a long time so I don't mind paying.
