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 Brush!

Omega 639 Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush I have been using a shaving brush for about 15 years, I had bought a Silver-Tip Badger brush that was made in England and if I remember correctly, I paid $75 for it. ()that was a lot of $$ then) For about the last year, I had struggled with shaving because I could hardly get any lather in the brush, I thought that the cup soap I had been using for years had changed. It finally dawned on me that I had worn out the old brush. The brand of brush that I had before was not available, and I wanted a larger brush this time. After searching the "net" I found West Coast Shaving's web site and purchased The Regal Silver-Tip in the largest size available. I can't tell you how pleased I am with this brush! I can hardly wait to shaver every morning! The brush is the highest quality an I really love it! Oh, and it was only $100.99, a GREAT VALUE. Thanks WCS!

I bought this brush because it was viually what I felt was a modern-day version of a timeless classic. I was not disappointed. It put lather together quite nicely and the handle is perfect for my midsize mitts. My first synthetic but not my ladt. Thanks.

Mistake on Price
5/24/2017
The Omega S brush is WAYYYYY underpriced!! I purchased this as a travel brush, being synthetic, I thought it would dry quickly and the price was very low, so why not? The performance was fantastic! Soft but firm bristles, no loss of bristles with use, it is everything you would want in a brush. The only feature which caused a problem was the diameter of the handle is so substantial, it does not fit into my travel brush tube, so take that into consideration.

Simpson Chubby 2 Best Badger Shaving Brush CH2 "Chubby 2 in best, yes, the icon, which belongs into 'each den'. But is it the best? Not entirely, the flow due the beloved density should be better (maybe cannot be, as density too much?). This is upto Mark on the Isle of Man to investigate, if not done already. My den hosts several Chubbies, also the 3-version with Manschurian... In fact, I do prefer those. One last opinion, the beast of Polo 12 beats all of them, in my opinion. Cheerio to all fellow wet shavers with sufficient funds for such expensive hobbies...
