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 Torch Shaving Brush, Synthetic, Tortoise.

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 bristles 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. The 26mm knot is a lather monster with a densely-packed large head to produce your lubricant. And we've set the knot deep in the handle for durability and comfort.

The hair is placed into our sturdy "Torch" handle. The acrylic tortoise handle is a cylindrical, squared off shape that isn't quite as curvy as many traditional options. This handle gives some character to your shave with its pattern and depth. The mottled handle might just have graced your grandfather's shaving den, back in the day. Just a rinse and wipe with a soft cloth will keep it looking good-as-new.

A lovely-looking grooming utensil at a great price. You get silvertip performance without the silvertip price tag. We think you are going to love it!

Size:

  • Knot: 26mm
  • Loft: 51mm
  • Overall Height: 103mm

*Can not be placed on a stand by handle only by the knot.

Does its job at a great price

Holds water well, and does a great job in lathering and application.

So good!

Amazing brush! For $17 and some change, you’d be a ***** for not getting this brush.

I ordered this brush primarily to get my order up to the Free Shipping level, and partially to try a modern synthetic brush as my Vulfix Super Badger travel model is starting to show its age. I did not have high expectations, but what a surprise! Dry, this brush is as soft as a lady's make-up brush. It holds water well, and the amount can easily be fine-tuned by squeezing the excess out. It whips up lather from Speick shaving soap quickly and easily holds enough for multiple-pass shaves. But the kicker is that after rinsing it out, I just need to flick it a few times in the shower stall and it is bone dry -- as in arid! This makes sense when one considers a synthetic "hair" cannot absorb water. This also makes it a great travel brush as well as a great all-round shaving brush. Good job, West Coast Shaving!

Excellent brush

I like this series. I’ve come around to liking synthetics more than badger (silver) as they are cheaper, tend to have more backbone for working with soaps, and have a great bloom and are soft on the face.
