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".

My favorite brush!

Simpson Chubby 2 Best Badger Shaving Brush CH2 I love brushes, have 12 of them (wont name drop but some very high end and one of a kinds) and always looking for more. This is my go to brush. Perfect in every way. I really like the large handle as I have fairly large hands so this fit comfortably and provides a excellent grip. Make lather like mad.

Because of the larger handle it wont fit manufactured stands except at the knot. I do not like to hang a brush at the knot as that sometimes causes hairs to be displaced or damaged. I ended up making a stand for it.

Omega S-Brush Model S10019, Black and Clear Great looking with the clear and black handle offset by the blond "hairs". Soft to the touch but nice nd firm for generating plenty of foam. I use it as one of my travel brushes.

Shavemac #177-2B 23mm D01 Shaving Brush, Faux Ivory As an owner of several Shavemac brushes, this is one of the best. Since I prefer a larger knot (23-24) this fits the bill perfect. The brush makes good lather with both soaps and creams, and is very soft. That being said, it is a very soft comfortable brush that some may find too floppy/long. The bottom line is, you get what you pay for. This is my second best brush, my first is the Shavemac #177 23mm Silver Tip Badger Shaving Brush. You can't go wrong with either one!

Shavemac #177 23mm Silver Tip Badger Shaving Brush I preferred a larger knot brush (23-24mm) and this brush fits that exactly. The brush ahs never shed, it has perfect stiffness, and works well with both soaps and cream. This brush is not a water hog, and once it is hydrated and shaken out, it may need minimal water to be added to work your lather. I own numerous high quality brushes and this is without a doubt one of the best. Don't be fooled by the price, you absolutely get what you pay for.
