I BELIEVE I KNOW WHY OTHERS WERE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THIS BRUSH ...
I read some of the previous reviews regarding excessive bristle loss, cracked handles, and the knot coming out of the handle. ALL of these problems are symptoms of improper care and use! I'm willing to wager that this is the first shaving brush for most purchasers, who are attracted by its inexpensive price. So, here are some care and maintenance rules for shaving brushes:
Although a shaving brush has a flat handle, this is so it can be set down conveniently while shaving. It should NEVER be allowed to dry sitting on its handle. It is absolutely crucial that you rinse the brush after use and then HANG IT WITH THE HANDLE UP (BRISTLES DOWN) in order to dry. Failure to do so will result in an early demise of your brush -- cracked wood handle, rotting bristles, loosening of the knot, etc. You can make a holder out of wire or a coat hanger if you do not want to buy one.
Also, when whipping up lather, your finger tips should be grasping the base of the bristles where they meet the handle, with the flat of the handle against your palm. Whip the lather using only the TIPS of the bristles. You don't want to "squash" the bristles while whipping up the lather.
Finally, when you rinse the brush, hold it bristles up under a gentle stream of water. Then, hold it with the bristles down and wring the bristles by gently squeezing the bristles between your fingers and thumb. Now, holding the brush where the bristles and handle meet between your forefinger and thumb, GENTLY shake the brush two or three times. Vigorous shaking holding only the handle will damage the brush.Read more ›
The brush does the job at a price MUCH better than the competitors.
My one minor issue:
-the first brush I bought repeatedly would lose hairs each time I used it. I hoped it would stop at some point but this went on for a month or so. In a strange sort of luck, I managed to leave the brush behind on a business trip and had to purchase a new one. The new brush works like a charm.
In a nutshell, I would not hesitate, if you need a shaving brush and do NOT want to pay an arm and a leg then this is the brush for you.
On a side note, if you are considering this brush you should also consider (if you have not already) switching to a Safety Razor rather than the economy razors you find in the supermarket. My shaving experience and outcome has changed considerably as a result of using this brush as well as the safety razor. My recommendation for a safety razor: Merkur Classic Safety Razor, Straight - #178

Like any other pursuit or hobby, there are those that will approach it from a perspective of frugality, those who'll opt for luxury and status, and those who want to hit the sweet spot of performance for the least expense. The Tweezerman's Men's Shaving Brush aims for that last group, and hits the mark well.
The whole idea here is that the Tweezerman brush is the least expensive Badger hair brush available new, and badger brushes deliver high quality lather with less time and effort than boar hair or synthetic brushes.
There are certainly badger brushes to be had for several hundred dollars, and they sport a higher quality grade of badger hair, and more of it. There are cheaper brushes made of lesser material. With the Tweezerman, you get most of the performance of the luxury brush with a cost more in line with a budget brush of far lower quality.
My Tweezerman performs admirably, shedding few hairs after the first use. There is little heft to the handle, and there are certainly brushes that are more pleasing to the eye.
If you get the brush acquisition bug, the Tweezerman will become the Yugo in your collection of exotic cars, an object of some scorn. If you are used to a boar or synthetic brush, the Tweezerman will seem like hot stuff. If you like nice for less, the Tweezerman is a great buy, and if you treat yourself to a nicer brush later, you'll have a handy travel brush in the Tweezerman.
This little brush has been part of the routine that has transformed the necessary drudgery of shaving to an enjoyable time in the day that I actually look forward to. Not bad for a few bucks.

Least favorite shaving brush I've ever owned. Bristles never stopped coming out. It's all floppity and just crappy all around for shaving. Better off without a brush at all.Published 13 days ago by Otis
