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!


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

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

Tortoiseshell Synthetic brush

This is a nice full dense brush. With a great face feel and a handle that you can really grip. Lathers great hand holds a ton of soap. For the price it's hard to beat..

Excellent Brush

I could see myself using this brush for well over a year. It is very nice and sturdy and provides a nice lather. Had to upgrade my shave stand, but now I have a gorgeous shaving set up!

Incredible performance for the money

I wasn’t expecting much from this brush. I was using a Fine Chubby style synthetic with a deeper loft and really enjoyed it, so I got this one to see what a higher loft would do. It splays more, but feels very soft on the face. I believe it’s the same angel synthetic hair used by Fine and others. This brush can whip up a good lather in half the time it takes me to get my badger brush going. Fantastic for the money. Obviously the handle isn’t anything to marvel over for this price, but it looks fine and is good sized to hold on to.

Synthetic brush

I spent $30 on a badger brush that is not nearly as good as this one... This brush is super soft but enough backbone. Can't go wrong.
