Best Quality for Money
Of all my brushes, I prefer to use this one the most. I actually don't like using silver tip because they are too soft on my face and I have a hard time building lather with them, also there's the cost! I have been using this brush for almost 5 years and it is still holding up well. Great texture, excellent lathers, great value.
It more than does the job!
Bruch bristle loss
Had the brush for about 10 months when it started shedding. Called West Coast and they gave me some treatments to try. After one month still shedding. Called company and they replaced with same brush as less than one year old. Will try new brush. Lathers good. Will see!!
Only brush needed.
I had most brushes from Art of Shaving however this one is better in every way. Takes very little work to stir up a nice whip of soap. I guess you could spend more but not sure it would justify it.
I buy this brush because it matches my dish, holder (fits it, too), and razor; and, it is the type (best) that works best for me. It is my second one and like the first it regularly, though not as bad as the first, loses 2 to 4 bristles with each use. Next time, unless I see something better that 'matches', I'd buy it again. Next time is about three years of use three times a week.
