We've been recommending the Edwin Jagger Best badger shaving brushes as one of the best values in shaving brushes for years. They offer an exceptional value due to high quality materials and workmanship and an unbeatable price. This is the new 2012 edition with enhanced handle. This brush is handmade in Sheffield using premium polyester for the handle, which is polished and very comfortable. The knot is handmade with best badger for a firmer feel, which is great for those looking for a little more exfoliation or for men with a thicker beard.
