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.

Just Buy It

I bought this brush to have a second inexpensive option since some creams and soaps can stain brushes, which I didn’t want to happen to my silvertip brush. After using this once I’m quite impressed and not sure I’d consider another silvertip one when it comes time to replace it. The knot on this is fat and the handle doesn’t fit in any stand like stated, it only fits in my extra wide one at the knot. The bristles are super soft but stiff enough that I was able to work up a great lather off a soap, I haven’t tried with a cream but I’d imagine I wouldn’t have an issue. They don’t hold water so you do need to keep dipping it to add water to the soap. Best part was that after I was finished and rinsed it out and a shake it’s basically dry. I really couldn’t tell a difference between this and my badger one. So, if you’re looking for a brush and budget conscious consider this and know you’re not sacrificing anything over a more costly option. It looks great and lathers like a champ.

Does its job at a great price

Holds water well, and does a great job in lathering and application.
