Yaqi silver tip badger, very impressed

First of all West Coast shaving is an extremely reputable company to deal with. Whatever you order here you cannot go wrong. I love my new yaqi brush. I've used it for about 2 weeks and it's getting ice and soft now during the break in. It started out a little scratchy but I expected that. It is already in the top three brushes that I own as one of my favorites. Speaking of my favorite brush, I also bought it here it is the West Coast shaving honeycomb handle badger brush.

Best of the Bunch

I bought six Yaqui brushes. Four synthetic and two badger. This one was the pick of the litter. For the price I don't think you can go wrong with this brush.

For the price, surprisingly good!

You would expect quality like this at a much higher price point. It does have a little bit of a scritchyness but after a few uses it really softens up. It has a very good loft and softness as well as a very pleasant long handle. I wish it wasn't as scritchy but for the price it really is unbeatable.

Great brush, great value

This is the first brush from Yaqi that I have bought, and man am I glad I did. This is a great silvertip brush and it's a good value as well. It is a bit scratchy, but I like it loads well, and has broken in nicely. I've lost 7 hairs and it seems that will be all. Overall, you can't beat this brush. I'm able to build a nice lather both in a bowl and on my face. Love the large size of the handle and the look is very presentable on my counter in my stand.

surprisingly nice brush

This is a good feeling brush, just a bit of scritch, shed maybe five hairs, splays well. I have two Yaqi bushes now. They seem good, but it will take a lot longer than a few weeks to see if they hold up. They also feel larger than the other 24mm brushes I have. If you like larger feeling brushes, seem to offer reasonable value.
