great brush, better service
i found west coast shaving while looking for a badger hair brush online...turns out, they’re located a couple towns over from me...i stopped by to buy a brush i had seen on their website, but they were out...instead, they sold me a slightly higher priced brush (this one) but discounted it to the same price as the original brush i originally intended to buy...additionally, the good folks agreed to apply the online 10% discount for joining the wcs club... when i got home, i tried out the brush with a van der hagen shaving set...this brush is much softer (than the boar brush from the van der hagen set) but still firm enough to develop a good lather... i would absolutely recimmend this brush to anyone thinking about getting it...not just because of the quality of the brush, but also because of the quality of the customer service...
A Steal At This Price
My primary brush was a gift that cost $100. It's soft as a baby's bottom and lathers cremes very nicely. This new brush isn't quite as soft, but also lathers very well. And it cost less than 1/5 of the more expensive brush. Plus, it loses fewer bristles (All brushes loses a few as they age).
Fantastic Shaving Brush
Firm, but soft. Looking forward to many years of shaving with this brush.
OK.....was expecting more
Was looking for a brush with some backbone to it, but this isn't it. Does hold water well and handle is comfy.....maybe I shouldn't have expected a lot for $15
