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 Little Brush

IMO this is the perfect little brush for travel or as an inexpensive start into wet shaving. For as small as the knot is, it has pretty good backbone.

Great brush! The softness makes it amazing for face lathering. Don't let the softness fool you though, this thing still has some great backbone. I've gotten great lather with soaps and creams. The handle is a good size and fits nicely in the hand. The tortoise finish really sets it apart and makes it unique. For under $20 this brush is a steal! Great job WCS!

Bowl lathering master this brush....... Like it a lot!

Omega 11126 Boar Shaving Brush, Ovangkol Wooden Handle "I've had this brush for roughly 4 months, and it has surprised the heck out me. Like the title says, excellent bowl lathering from this boar. Just the right handle length, good loft and backbone. Though it was the first boar brush that took a while to break in, about a months worth of shaves. A little stiffer than I would prefer for face lathering in the beginning and still not quite there compared to my Omega #81052 or the Semogue #1305, which is my favorite boar brush. But the handle & loft of the brush is awesome for bowl lathering. Surprisingly, haven't lost a single hair from it. If you bowl lather, this one will fit the bill nicely. It's definitely worth being in my rotation.

Very nice Boar bristles..... Handle? Not so much.....

Omega 81052 Banded Boar Shaving Brush "I've had this brush for just about 4 months now and it has proven to be a great performer. Works well with both soft and hard soaps. Didn't take very long to break-in actually, 7-10 shaves tops. The handle is the only thing that kind of takes a star away for me. It's got a semi hexagon shape to it and kind of short, so when I bowl lather on occasion, it does not give a good grip when your working the lather. For face lathering though, it performs flawlessly. Lost a couple hairs during the first 2-3 shaves, none since. It holds water well, gets softer with use and has good backbone and "scritch" in applying lather. For the price, it's a good brush that won't disappoint......
