Shaving Brush Education

Shaving Brushes have dual functionality. First they are used to create great lathers from shaving creams and shaving soaps. Second, they lift the beard and exfoliates the skin, to allow for a better shave.

Differences in Shaving Brush hair types

There are 4 common types of hair: Badger hair, Boar hair, Horse hair, and Synthetic hair. Badger hair is considered the best type of hair because of its superior ability to hold water and heat, allowing for a better lather. Boar and Horse hair tend to be less soft and hold less water, a great option for someone starting in wet shaving. Synthetic is also a great option for someone who wants a vegan option.

Pure, Best, Super and Silvetip Badger Hair Brushes

There is a range of quality of badger hair brushes going from the lower end Pure Badger to the higher end Silvertip Badger. As you go up the range, the hair becomes softer and the brush usually retains more water. Also the coloration tends to lighten as you go up the range, with Pure badger being the darkest in color, Best badger usually with different bands of color, and Silvertip with a more white color.

Shaving Brush Knot, Loft and Backbone

The knot refers to the diameter of the base of the hair. The larger the knot, the more hair there is...usually. Some knots are more densely packed than others. Loft refers to the height of the hair from the base of the knot to the top of the hair. Backbone refers to how strong the hairs stand up to pressure. Backbone is a combination of knot, loft and type of hair. The larger the knot, the more dense it is, and the shorter the loft, the more backbone it will have. Boar and Horse tend to have more backbone than badger hair. A brush without much backbone is considered "floppy".

Great Shave brush
I've used this brush for about two weeks. It’s awesome, holds lathers and heat very well, no sheading and looks elegant. Great value and cost less than a similar quality brush from those shave box stores.

Great Value
Compared to other sub $50 Badger brushes I have owned this one is top drawer. Awesome water holding, which means luxurious lather, and at this price you should try top quality at a value price.

Surprisingly Good
The good points:

* Price!

* Nice looking from a distance

* Breaks in and works great, especially with hard soaps

* Not too scratchy -- just right

* Even comes with a little brush holder



Things I wish were better:

* Would be nice if the handle weighed a little more -- not a big problem

* Looks cheap up close -- but then it is inexpensive, and that doesn't keep it from functioning better than many much more expensive brushes



Recommended -- I have a lot of shaving stuff up and down the price range, and I would definitely buy another one of these Omega brushes. I probably won't have to for a long time, though, as this one is holding up very well also. Good backbone for hard soaps, but breaks in fairly quickly to be pleasant on the face. Can obviously bowl lather, but can also face lather. I did not expect this brush to be this satisfying. A great value.

Very Nice and Solid Brush
Wet shaving is all I've known. I have an Omega Silvertip Badger brush, but this boar brush performs as I had hoped: a good backbone (compared to most Badger brushes) with some softness. It is atypically soft compared to the average boar hair brush...and it has noticeably softened further with continued use. However, the backbone has remained so far :) It does hold water well, though depending on the soap you are using, you will likely need to add a few drops of water into the brush while using it.
