Kent was established in 1777 and is one of the oldest companies in Great Britain. They have always been known to carry only the most excellent quality products. They have been granted Royal Warrants for nine reigns. For six generations, the original family ran the company until 1932 when the last of the 3 brothers passed away. Mr. Eric L.H. Cosby, directed for the next duration, now to pass it one of his grandsons, Mr. Alan H.L. Cosby. Throughout this exciting history, they pride themselves in the fact that many of the original products are not mass produced, and while they harness the latest manufacturing processes, they also hold to the traditional methods of creating the finest brushes. There is nothing quite like a Kent shaving brush -- you feel the luxury. We also honestly feel that you will not understand what a good comb is until you try one of theirs.
