Yaqi Arctic Sky Deep Blue Handle Shaving Brushes

9 reviews

Yaqi brushes are here!

This Chinese brand has been creating some buzz in the wet shaving world with their high quality, rock bottom price, and exceptional design. Add it to your SOTD. They specialize in a synthetic knot that is fast drying, long-lasting, and densely packed. But they offer exceptional badger hair brushes as well.

This brush is loaded with either white synthetic or silvertip badger hair. The synthetic option is known to be a great latherer, easy to care for, and less expensive. Silvertip is a natural hair that whips up a phenomenal lather and while priced higher gives you a luxurious face feel.

This tall handle is slim and curvaceous. Made with resin, the deep blue will have you imagining arctic water, even the foggy swirls in the base contribute to that idea. It is stunning with the white synthetic or the "silver-tipped" badger hair.

Choose White synthetic hair or Silvertip Badger hair from the drop-down menu.

arctic/polar knot is fantastic

This review is for the arctic/polar synthetic knot found on the synthetic version of this brush. It is a fantastic knot, my second favorite overall after my super-dense silvertip, and I own a number of brushes in badger, boar, and one other older synthetic (which I hate). The knot is very, very soft, it is like down on your face. It is dense and while you would not describe it as having a lot of backbone, it has enough to perform a nice face lather. It holds heat very well from warm water and is dense and large enough to hold lather for 3 or 4 passes with no problem. Mine is perfect - it was set perfectly in the handle, has not lost a single bristle, looks great after it dries and performs well in terms of lather production and release. I personally like the way it looks also, it does not look cheap in any way. If you already own some nice badger brushes and are trying to decide between the badger or synthetic version of this brush I urge you to try the synthetic - while I am sure the badger is a nice knot as well, this particular synthetic knot, which is one of a kind in terms of appearance and performance, is a must-try in my book.

Perfect brush for my dopp bag for traveling. The sky deep blue is so intense. The handle is just the right size and shape for my hand. Thanks for such a great brush and such good service.. I particularly appreciate how you guys keep me posted on my shipping of my purchases.

Great Synthetic

At first I was skeptical. It looked great, but how would it perform? Wow! It's beautiful, nicely weighted, and the bristles are soft, but not floppy. You can't beat this brush for the money. An awesome way to start the morning.
