I don’t know how anyone could rate this less than a “super” value. It’s only like $10! You just need to know what you’re getting.
This is a boar brush. It’s not as soft as badger or synthetic, especially not at first. The strong, stiff bristles are excellent for whipping up a lather. With use it will break in and the tips will split and feel much softer (especially when wet), and you’ll get awesome soft bristles on your face but a very sturdy backbone at the same time.
This brush in particular has very tall bristles with a lift of 63 mm I think. Combine that with the large handle and it’s an excellent brush for a bowl lather (or a face lather). And that handle is great. It is plastic, but it does not feel cheap at all. The large size and shape make it a joy to use. I really like the handle.
It’s been a fantastic brush for me and a great introduction to boar brushes. It’s easy and comfortable to use and very effective. I have not tried a lot of boar brushes, but I doubt you’d be able to beat it for the price.
