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!

Size:

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

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

Awesome brush!

I bought this brush for traveling and it has been fantastic. It’s super soft, holds a great lather, and dries quick after you wash it out.

Functional

It's a fine shaving brush, though nothing special. A good, functional, comfortable brush.

Great Knot; prefer the handle on the WCS Lantern version with the same synthetic bristles

Knot: 5 stars! Handle: 2 stars (ymmv) I've used boar, badger, and a couple other synthetics, and this is as good as any I've tried. Compared to my previous synthetics, this has a much softer feel on the face, without being floppy or "collapsing" when wet like some other synthetics, and it whips up a lather quickly and easily. Holds water better than my other synthetics. Not a single hair lost yet! I'm not a fan of the handle on this brush though. Big and chunky; I would change it by giving it a narrower "waist" to provide a better grip when shaking out the water after you're done (I had this fly out of my wet hands once - fortunately no damage done. The handle *is* sturdy!) Fortunately, there is an option: I have subsequently purchased the WCS Lantern synthetic shaving brush (same fiber type, slightly smaller knot), which is more comfortable to hold and provides a better grip. If you like a big chunky grip, go for it. If not, try the Lantern version. In either case, I think this synthetic fiber is great - just pick the handle style you like best. (Photo shows the two side-by-side. There is not a huge difference in knot size - handle is where the differences are for me)

Feels soft on my face

Nice and soft on my face, creates a nice lather. A bit big for my taste, I prefer something a little smaller.

Like this brush!

I was hesitant to buy this one due to its shape, but went ahead and glad i did. Works great with soaps and creams, stiff enough, yet soft, good lather and feels solid in my hand. Definite recommend.
