In my 65 years of shaving, 60+ using a brush, this is the best of the several brushes I've had. The first couple of shaves with it I didn't use enough water and soap but after figuring that out, it has been superb. The stiffness has bothered some users but I find that it helps work the lather into the beard better and it isn't that stiff. This is well worth the money.
Great Brush, Nice shape
I bought this brush during a sale on West Coast Shaving. It is an amazing brush, with a typical English "fan" shape with an excellent lathering ability. The only fly in the ointment to speak of is that it isn't as soft, when dry, as one would expect for such an expensive brush. My Semogue 730 HD is much softer when dry. Once the brush is wet it feels very soft.
OLD FASHION QUALITY!
THIS IS MY VERY BEST BRUSH AND THE QUALITY IS RIGHT UP THERE WITH MY FAVORITE COMB, WHICH IS ALSO A KENT.
Kent BK4 Shaving Brush
Excellent quality smaller brush for face lathering. The silver tip badger is a significant improvement over my previous badger brush.
