Parker CHST Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush, Chrome Handle
Very satisfied with the look and feel of this brush. Works up a great lather with a smooth-feeling and well balanced handle. Easily compares with a brush costing several times more. Highly recommended.
I like the size and feel of this brush. It’s easy to use and lather and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. Awesome value for sure.
Great Lather Producer
I purchased this brush because it was on sale and looked nice. I was a bit skeptical, having never used a synthetic other than those cheap ones from the local drug store years ago, but the reviews were positive on the newer synthetics, so I decided to give it a try. It’s now my favorite brush. I’d say it’s not quite as soft as my other two brushes (a vulfix super badger and a semogue boar), but I’m able to produce more lather of higher quality for greater cushion than with my other two. It is noticibly bigger than my other two, so perhaps that is the reason and I’d be curious to try an equally large boar or badger, but honestly I have no good reason to purchase them given how well this one has been performing, particularly given the low price point. I generally don’t do a 3-pass shave, but this is the first brush that I’ve used that I’d actually be able to perform that without having to reload the brush.
First ever synthetic brush
I have been using a smaller badger brush for years and wanted to try a synthetic knot. This is a gorgeous looking brush. The fibers lather well and are soft on the face. I have no complaints and have enjoyed this new addition to my shave den.
Have had several shaves using this brush. Great knot size. Splays nicely with plenty of backbone. Holds and applies lather well. I have pretty much gone with synthetic brushes and this is a regular for me.
