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.
Simpsons Berkeley Best Badger Shaving Brush 46B.Been using this about 2 weeks now and this is an upgrade from my daily boar brush (that I really love using). The loft is small than I'm accustom to and the overall size is a bit smaller as well. I use a bowl to start and build my lather and finish on my face. This brush works perfectly with my system. Not sure how it would fair with face lathering alone as loft is on the smaller size. While working the lather on my face I can easily support the bristly with my hand helping to guide the lather and preventing the bristles from spreading to much. WOW, the bristles have great backbone to tackle my soap collection and make a very dense creamy lather which ever soap I use! The bristles are nice a soft against my face while giving a nice gentle scrubbing. This brush as supplanted my other brushes to become my daily brush! Overall GREAT brush!
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.despite being hooked on Plisson (France) brushes, I gave this one a try, since Italy produces excellent products. The brush is small, but it has a very comfortable feeling to it and gives an excellent lather. It will be my traveling brush.
Simpson Colonel X2L Best Badger Shaving Brush (X2L).My wife purchased the Colonel for me last month. As a newbie wet shaver, I was a little uncertain on which brush I should purchase as my first. And I have to say, I am so glad I chose the Colonel. It's amazing with both soaps and creams. It lathers like a champ and builds enough for 3-4 passes. I highly recommend the Colonel!
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.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.I absolutely love this brush. Whips up any cream or soap I throw at it, even Mitchell's. It's small, but don't let it fool you; it's soft and it lathers like a champ.
Kent BLK8 Traditional Silver Tip Badger Shaving Brush, Black Handle.I have had a very cheap brush for years now and my wife picked up a nice pure badger brush about six months ago. I was impressed, so I plotted to upgrade. based on the other two reviews, I settled on the BLK8. Wow, just wow. This brush handles up on shave soap like a boss. Excellent quality, so very soft, and my wife's only comment was "I never should have touched it". Spend the money, it's worth it.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.as always, extremely satisfied with west coast shaving customer service .
Simpson Colonel X2L Best Badger Shaving Brush (X2L).Great brush while it excels at face lathering soaps this brush can also be used to bowl lather creams with great results. The break in period was very short with very little shedding.
Simpson Colonel X2L Best Badger Shaving Brush (X2L).For those who want a high end brush without the high end prices, this is a great brush. I think I would call this a gateway brush since it will open you up to the higher end brush makers. Would recommend to anyone beginners and others.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.Heard so much about Silvertip badger brushes, but didn't know if I'd like it..it is fantastic. Love the way it makes lather or cream with ease, and it feels so good when applying said product to your face. I think my only regret..(and it's my fault, not the manufacturer)...is I want one with a larger handle....that's next on my list. Brush is a great value, customer service is second to none, and delivery was prompt.
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
Kent BLK8 Traditional Silver Tip Badger Shaving Brush, Black Handle.I bought this brush, because I was in the market for a new silver tip brush, but I wanted something with class, style and didn't look like it rolled off an assembly line. I admit it took me a few days to get the lather right. This brush can retain a lot of water, much more than my previous badger brush and I found I was diluting my lather. Figured out the right ratio and wow does this produce a lather. Easily enough for 3 passes and a touch up/buffing pass. GREAT BRUSH.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.Bought the larger brother to his one when WCS was out of stock of his brush. Too big. Probably good for womens' legs, but the 636 is just perfect for my face. Soft and lathers well. Love it.
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!
West Coast Shaving Torch Shaving Brush, Synthetic, Tortoise this brush is really nice, soft, retains water and helps create a very nice lather! i definitely recommend this brush to anyone looking for a very good quality brush without having to spend a lot of money
West Coast Shaving Beacon Shaving Brush, Pure Badger, Ivory Best.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush The comfort of this brush is superb! It was a joy to shave with such luxury. The handle has a masculine design very different from other brushes I've seen. It is a small brush so big hands may not appreciate its delicate styling.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.amazing with soaps and creams. Also, the cheapest silvertip you will find.
Simpson Colonel X2L Best Badger Shaving Brush (X2L).This is my third shaving brush, and it is, by far, my favorite shaving brush! It is amazing with soaps and harder creams, yet it also performs great with softer shaving creams. The shorter loft allows it to build just enough lather for 3-4 passes without hogging any excess lather. If the rest of the Simpson line performs as well as this brush has, they have a customer for life!
Simpson Special 1 Pure Badger Shaving Brush S1 Comfortable to handle. Good bristles.
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.
Simpsons Berkeley Best Badger Shaving Brush 46B.What a fantastic brush. It works well with soaps and creams. Very soft tips with good backbone for those hard triple milled soaps. Whether you face lather or bowl lather the Berkeley is a fine choice. I gotta say for the money spent on this brush it has got to be one of the best deals in shaving brushes hands down. I cant say enough good things about it.
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.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.Great brush for the money. Feels great and looks like it will last for some time.
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.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.I just received my first order from you guys, which included the Omega 636 Silvertip Badger. I used it today for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with how good this brush works. It is small but works like a champ. I mixed Proraso Shaving Soap (also received with this order) and Proraso Shaving cream mixed in a bowl. I recommend this really good brush. Thanks for having it in stock!
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush "Quality brush, softer than boar brush, but stiffer than a synthetic. Perfect on the skin.
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.
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.
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.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.Excellent experience.
Parker Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Black and Chrome I bought this brush as a travel brush and it is now my main brush. Compared to my expensive Simpson Badger, this brush is just as good at $100 less. The look and quality of knot is superb!
West Coast Shaving Beacon Black Synthetic Shaving Brush, Black I'm a brush nut...I have everything from cheap synthetics to big Thaters. This is BY FAR the best synthetic I've tried. It actually has a little backbone. I mean not much, but just enough. I'd prefer more backbone. But it's really really good for a synthetic! I do use it. Very soft on the face. Low maintenance. Great value! Bought one for my Son too.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush.This is a very nice, soft, small brush. Mine has held onto all of its hair and has whipped up both soap and cream. It's definitely not a stiff brush, I love my Omega boar brushes and and can really scrub with them, this will not do that. That's not a bad thing, just a characteristic of the brush. I bought this after becoming frustrated with a brush costing over twice as much that just never stopped shedding. I did some research and found that Omega puts out quality brushes. Having a couple of their boar brushes (that I love) and considering the low cost I thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did, it's as good if not better then my $130 brush. It's just as soft and not shedding at a fraction of the cost, excellent brush.
Omega 636 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush Expensive but good
Simpson Colonel X2L Best Badger Shaving Brush (X2L).Was excited to order the Colonel after reading about it on a few forums. However, I've had it for about a month, and it still has a shedding problem. Loses 6-8 hairs per shave, very annoying.
Simpsons Berkeley Best Badger Shaving Brush 46B.This is my third shaving brush, but my first Simpson. When I first got it I knew people had said that it was on the small size, but it still surprised me a bit. However, this little brush is amazing!! I have a silver tip brush from Parker, but this brush is softer, and has ALOT more backbone. It did an absolute FANTASTIC job with my Taylor shaving cream. I am still learning how to use it with the soap and get a good lather, but I can tell once I get used to that it's going to work well there as well. You can not beat this brush at this price, absolutely great.
