Vulfix 405B Pure Badger Shaving Brush.bought 2 of theses brushes from another vendor and work well. in less than a year the first one the wound bristles broke out of the handle. I glued it back into the handle w/epoxy and works fine. The 2nd one bristles are 'falling' out of the handle. like I ref. they work well but do not seem to last.
Omega 63185 Pure Badger Shaving Brush.WELL MADE AND FINISHED BRUSH . LOADS NICE & AFTER SEVERAL SHAVES HASN'T LOST A HAIR YET. WORTH THE PURCHASE AND FIGURE IT WILL LAST ALONG TIME.
Vulfix 1000A Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Faux Ivory.The bristles broke in relatively quickly and now they feel soft against my skin, the size of the brush is neither too small nor too big -- which allows a balance between ease of lathering and control over application -- and the brush is small enough to fit on my chrome stand and therefore easily portable.
Omega 63185 Pure Badger Shaving Brush.I started with a drug store brush and thought it was okay. After shaving for about 4 months, and reading so many reviews I decided there must be a difference between what I had and a 'better' brush. The folks at WCS made a few recommendations and this is the one I decided on. They did not steer me wrong - it's a great brush. Lathers well. Retains heat. Keeps its body while being soft. It does exactly what it's supposed to do every morning. I could not ask for more or for better. Clearly I will be using it a long time. By the way, I use Bigelow's cream in a tube and lather it on my face. Great cream and a great brush.
Parker WHPB Pure Badger Shaving Brush, White Handle.This is my first badger brush and I definitely am not disappointed! Only being a 2mm bigger knot than my boar brush, I expected the size to be similar but hoped for a wide bloom like the pic shows. Badger obviously holds much more water than boar or my cheap synthetic and makes a much thicker lather than I've ever been able to whip up before. This brush is HEAVY like the description says, but it still might surprise you. The firm backbone is just what the doctor ordered for me, and the faux ivory and chrome delivers class in spades. I did deduct one star because the soft badger tips that everyone talks about didn't seem to live up to what I expected, but I understand that this isn't a high dollar brush stuffed with silvertip so I'm not upset in the slightest. I think the exfoliation it provides will actually prove to be an asset to me. All in all, this is a big fat heavy classy brush that would still be a heck of a deal at twice the price. WCS isn't just the best shaving site on the web, they are one of the most impressive companies that I've ever done business with. Keep it up!
Omega 63162 Pure Badger Shaving Brush.Owning a Jagger Silvertip, a gift from my wife and daughter some years ago, I was fascinated with the reviews and positive comments about this brush. I am a long time-user of Omega boar brushes for the regular grind; so, when I placed an order for other stuff, I had them throw this in rather than take a back order on something else. Needless to say, the comments are all true-this has become my daily go-to. All natural brushes, boar or badger, have some early funk-this cleared up in about 5-6 uses. Holds its shape as well as the Jagger. Always make sure you dry thoroughly after using any brush-treat them like the tools they are.
Parker Travel Shave Brush, Brushed Aluminum, Pure Badger I have been shaving with safety razors for seven years, wishing to take my razors and soap with me, but stymied by TSA. I still am stymied by my inability to bring blades with me as carry-on, but I recently took to using soap samples and lathering on my face instead a bowl. It can be done! The Parker Travel brush is my first foray into this and I am still a newbie, but very impressed with this brush. Yes, pure badger hair takes a little breaking in and the West Coast Shaving Brush Startup Guide was very helpful in understanding that (Thanks, folks!). Let me tell you that the ability to pamper yourself a bit while traveling should not be missed! Mildly harsh at first, breaking in the hairs was done quickly at home in the first weeks, so that now as I travel, lathering is simple and enjoyable. Yes, I use those little shaving soap samples to reduce packing hassles. The brush falls into the aluminum handle easily and is sealed with a vented cap to dry in your bag if needed. I would certainly reconfigure the brush and dry it once at the next destination or home before storage. I truly appreciate the head attachment and storage capability in the handle. That was why I bought this and will continue to enjoy it for some time to come. Value? Absolutely! I held off the 5th star, only because I have only used this for two months.
Vulfix 1000A Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Faux Ivory "This is a solid badger brush for anyone who does not want to spend very much. The brush is quite soft and has the look and feel of a higher-grade badger knot. That being said, if you're looking for a stiff brush that can be used to lather vigorously, this is likely not the brush for you. Overall though, this is a great first choice for those who refuse to settle for a low-grade brush, as it strikes a nice balance between cost and quality.
Parker Marbled Ivory Black Badger Shaving Brush.The brush smells like a dead animal when wet (at first) but man does it lather! The smell fades quickly, and doesn't transfer to your face, so don't worry too much about that. The stand it comes with isn't anything to write home about, but the fact it comes with one at all is a plus and the brush itself is worth the price.
Vulfix 1000A Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Faux Ebony This brush lathers more efficiently than my starter Omega boar brush - the bristles are much softer and as a result feels better when applying the lather on my face. Lost a few bristles during the break-in phase, but it seems to retain them rather well.
Vulfix 1000A Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Faux Ebony "Great brush for the price! Makes a real nice lather. Not sure spending more money would be worth it.
Omega 63171 Pure Badger Shaving Brush Great shave brush. And no it doesn't stink.
West Coast Shaving Beacon Shaving Brush, Pure Badger, Ivory I am new to the whole wet shaving thing, that said this brush was easy to use right out of the box and still looks great after a few months of use. good product good value
Edwin Jagger Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Imitation Ebony, Nickel Plated.I got this brush after using the wooden Tweezerman brush. I must say, what an upgrade. This brush holds a LOT of water. It's very gentle and soft on the face but firm enough to create a really nice lather. The handle is very comfortable and solid-feeling. As far as shedding, I'm really impressed. After unpacking and using it for the first time, I'm expecting the sink to look like I shaved a badger. That's not the case at all. I think I had one, or at the most, two hairs shed on first use. After that, zero shedding. It says "entry level" in the description, but I don't believe I'll be upgrading. This brush works great for me.
Simpson Special 1 Pure Badger Shaving Brush S1 This was my first Simpson's purchase as I was not sure if I was going to like them so I started out conservatively. What it managed to do was turn me into a short loft, pure badger addict. I have a Berkley in Pure also, but when I use it the knot seems almost too big now...so this is my main brush and would highly reccomend!
Omega 63185 Pure Badger Shaving Brush.Don't want to spend a lot of money on a brush. Try this one out I've spent a lot of money for the high end brush this by far is the best for the money
Parker CHPB Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Chrome Handle "I've been using one of these for several years now. I keep trying others, but so far this one still beats them all. Great full, fluffy knot. I've used this brush with everything from luxury shaving soaps and creams all the way to raw African black soap from Nigeria, and this little gem never fails to whip up a great lather with just about anything. I love this brush! The logo does wear off after awhile, but the brush looks fine without it. I don't ever remember it shedding at all.
West Coast Shaving Beacon Shaving Brush, Pure Badger, Ivory Best.
Omega 6191 Pure Badger Shaving Brush with Ash HandleBetween shave nation,bullgoose,royal an classic shave west coast got them beat my opinion!!!
Parker Marbled Ivory Black Badger Shaving Brush Purchased a nice brush and stand for my son. It was easy to order, arrived on time and is a quality gift. He loves it!
Parker Marbled Ivory Black Badger Shaving Brush "brush has a lot of wild hairs. hope in time it will improve appearance. it functions as expected and looks are secondary.
Edwin Jagger Pure Badger Travel Shaving Brush, Nickel Plated.Love the design! Knurled metal at brush head allows use with or without the handle (case). Big enough brush to work up and hold a good lather. BUT, I would have gladly paid an extra $20-30 for a higher quality hair. The pure badger hair is very coarse and "sticky/spikey"! Fine if you're painting on your lather but if you're swirling on the lather with the tips of the hair, you're GONNA feel it! Full Disclosure: The brush is new and may soften up considerably with use. If so, I'll certainly amend my review. Still would have preferred a higher quality badger, though.

Simpson Special 1 Pure Badger Shaving Brush S1 Comfortable to handle. Good bristles.
Parker THPB Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Tortoise Handle "This brush builds an impressive amount of lather. Feels great on the face. The included stand is a nice bonus.
Vulfix 1000A Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Faux Ivory.This brush was a little smaller than I had thought it was going to be, but it actually works really well. I don't really have anything bad to say about it.
Edwin Jagger Pure Badger Travel Shaving Brush, Silver Aluminum Handle .I was a little worried because of the below review, but liked the design (which many seem to share) and color. The knot isn't very dense so it's a bit floppy and being a pure badger it's a touch scritchy... But really not bad! I used it daily before upgrading to a "home brush" as well as for travel, where it really shines. Dries quickly, hasn't shed and works well in general.
Vulfix 1000A Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Faux Ivory.Initial impression: Holy cow this thing is tiny. The handle is kind of cheap looking, and the logo looks like a bad model car decal. First use was mediocre at best. My suggestion is to lather it to the best of your ability on your hand first, then wash it thoroughly. After the first use, however, this thing exploded lather. I was actually surprised at the amount of lather that it put out. I was using Ogallala Bay Rum, Sage & Cedar Shaving Soap but I've also tried it on my no-name puck as well, with the same results. For someone trying to get into badger-hair on a budget this is a good choice. The size and handle leave something to be desired, but this thing packs a punch where it counts.
Edwin Jagger Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Imitation Tortoise Shell The pure badger Edwin Jagger shaving brush is my first Jagger shave brush. I have others from Vulfix etc, but this one looks nicer and every few thousand shaves, I like to try a new brush! This is well made; lathers quickly and holds the lather perfectly! It rinses easily and dries quickly! Its a keeper in the brush rotation. I also popped for some WCS #1 Gatsby shave soap and splash! Excellent products! I love the quality and scent! Hoorah!
Simpson Special 1 Pure Badger Shaving Brush S1 I like the feel in my hand and the texture if the bristles it works better than my old brush even when it was new. Would recommend to everyone.
Edwin Jagger Pure Badger Travel Shaving Brush, Black Aluminum Handle.I just received and used my EJ Pure Badger Travel Brush Black Aluminum. It is smaller than what I thought so it is perfect for travel (which is why I purchased it) It is sturdy and easy to assemble and use; although I had to re-tighten once while I was lathering, but that's not a big deal. I suggest you use it a couple of times before you take it on the road because it has the traditional badger smell after it is wet. I washed it with regular hair shampoo before I used it for the first time and it still had a strong smell, however if you are a regular Badger Brush user you know that smell will go away after 2 or 3 shaves. Originally I was planning on taking one of my regular brushes on the road and put them inside an old plastic pill tube. But this travel brush will surely do a great job. Edwin Jagger scored a big run with this item.
Edwin Jagger Pure Badger Travel Shaving Brush, Nickel Plated.Awesome brush??_ everything I needed!
Omega 6191 Pure Badger Shaving Brush with Ash Handle.I have got all sort of brushes from simpson duke in best and commodore x3 in best and some silvertip and super to semogue in 2 band and boar and omega in boar !i like most of them but this brush is just amazing feels just right and soft with some sctrich to it !great pure badger hair I don't think it's trimmed at the tips and it's really packed well with great flow just love it !! It makes great great lather and holds tons of water !get it get it I'm sure you will love it !!
Simpson Special 1 Pure Badger Shaving Brush S1 You may be thinking, if he titles it "EXCELLENT BRUSH" then why is he rating it four stars and not five? Very simple reason. It is small. Quality brush, but not much to it, for me. Yet it does work well. For the price, a great value. Just remember, although Simpson says they sterilize (and I believe that they truly do) the brush, it is from a badger, therefore thoroughly wash it before first use. Otherwise, it will have an unpleasant odor. Doesn't really stink, as it is more annoying/unpleasant. Even after washing/cleaning it a few times, it still took a few uses to get the smell out, by having my various soap aromas take over. All things considered, it's an excellent badger brush. I hope this helps you.
West Coast Shaving Beacon Black Synthetic Shaving Brush, Black I just purchased this brush and have used it only a few times but it was terrific from day one. My previous brush was animal hair and had to be broken in for several months, while this brush was perfect out of the box. It lathers up beautifully and is both soft on the face and stiff in the bowl, a perfect combination. Also, at least for the first several times, I have not noticed any bristles falling out. My previous brush shed bristles every time it was used. I will definitely purchase again.
Parker Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Black and Chrome Like the workmanship that went into making this brush. I look forward to many years of good service from this brush.
Omega 63185 Pure Badger Shaving Brush While I'm still relatively new to the world of wet shaving, this was one of my earliest purchases and one of my best. I like the feel of the brush on my face, it creates copious amounts of later with both cream and soap, it dries quickly, and it looks sharp. Looking forward to many more great shaves with this brush. While it may not measure up to some high end brushes, I'm sure it's a good starting point for anyone making the move to wet shaving.
Parker WHPB Pure Badger Shaving Brush, White Handle.Ok, so not as soft as silver tip (comparing this to silver tip from Baxter of Cali), but very effective. Nice heft. Which I prefer. produces excellent lather and is especially good for lathering on the face. Bristles have just a hint of a bite, but this is mostly invigorating as opposed to bothersome. At this price, it is hard to complain. So far during break in period, have seen a few bristles come loose, but seems to be holding up now. If you are a softy, fine, go for the silver tip. But this is a very good brush and very good value.
