Bringing wet shaving to the masses is a high priority for us here at West Coast Shaving. We want to source and create grooming goods that allow you to love your daily shave. So we set out to bring you the highest quality shaving brushes at an unbeatable price. Our new range of brushes (in synthetic, silvertip, and pure badger) offer exceptional shaving at a great value (without the middle man). Try West Coast Shaving Beacon Shaving Brush, Black Synthetic.

We've loaded this brush with a unique, new fiber that is taking the shaving world by storm. One of the first to truly rival badger hair for comfort and performance, it is cruelty-free and lower cost than badger. The soft black fibers have a fantastic face-feel and whip up an exceptional lather. But they still have an firm backbone, so (unlike other synthetics) they work as well on soaps as they do on creams. And the man-made fibers are easy to care for and long-lasting. A 24mm knot makes this a medium (trending to large) brush that creates ample lather. The densely-packed knot is set deep in the handle for durability and comfort.

Our "Beacon" handle is a black resin with a flared base. Deep, dark, and curvaceous, this stout brush will enhance your daily shave. The traditional handle is perfect to grip in wet environments. The high-gloss polish just needs a rinse and wipe with a soft cloth to stay looking good-as-new.

A stunning-looking grooming utensil at a great price. Get started on your wet shaving adventure with this pure badger option. We think you are going to love it!

New convert

I just received and used this brush, and I am highly impressed. My previous brush is a Rooney Nylon that I fit as a gift about fifteen years ago. In comparison to the Rooney, the Beacon has a larger knot and a larger brush. The biggest difference is the feel of the bristles. Whereas the Rooney has a firm, rough feel, the Beacon feels like your girlfriend/wife's make-up brush. It's soft and luxurious, but still has a good backbone to it. The handle is huge. This is not a brush for someone with small hands. For my first shave, I used a shaving stick and lathered directly on my face. The brush held a good amount of water, and whipped up a nice, thick lather. Overall, I would recommend this to abut with larger hands. If you have small hands, I suggest you pass on this one and go with either the Lantern or Torch models.

Great value!

This was my first synthetic brush, and honestly, I was not sure what to expect. Having used high end, dense, badger Silvertip brushes...it was different. A bit limp. And drips water everywhere. But after a small learning curve, It’s great for softer soaps and bowl lathers. It also splays well in the face without damaging the bristles. It’s a great brush. And I continue to use it with my softer soaps. But I still lean toward dense badger knots. Don’t hesitate to purchase it. It is an incredible value for a synthetic brush.

Trying Synthetic Brush Again

I tried a synthetic brush several years ago. Couldn't warm up to it so gave it to my younger son. He wears a beard and was using a hog bristle(I'm not sure what the correct terminology is) brush. thought I would try a current synthetic. It is ok but doesn't measure up to a natural bristle brush. Doesn't cost like one either. I'll use it in rotation but probably won't buy another.
