Fine badger hair is a bit stronger than the classic silvertip, but you will also find the characteristic black ribbon in the middle of the beige hair. These brushes are a great compromise if you prefer soft hair but still want to achieve a more robust massaging effect when applying shaving lather.
Ebony is one of the most valuable woods on earth. It is extremely hard and heavy. Therefore, it is perfect for the production of a high-quality handle. Its structure allows the wood to retain its shape even in humid environments and prevents swelling of the material. Several grind cycles are necessary to create the silky smooth surface.
To lather your shaving soap or cream properly, hold your shaving brush briefly under warm water. Under light pressure, whip the soap to a luxurious lather. Massage this gently onto your moistened skin without bending the bristles. Then let it work for a short time, and you’re ready for a smooth and thorough shave.
For a long service life, rinse your brush with warm water after each use. Then it is best to hang it up to dry in a well-ventilated place, so that the hair fibres recover and stay supple. To avoid hair breakage, you should wash your shaving brush with hair shampoo after a few shaves to remove lather residue. You can find more information here.
