A little Pokey

This brush is very well made and has a great deal more backbone than a standard silvertip. It does have the characteristic badger odor, but that can be washed off. It blooms to a huge size. The hair stands quite *****, even after it has been soaked in water. Because the individual hairs are rigid, they can poke your sensitive facial skin and feel uncomfortable. After two weeks of lathering and drying cycles, it is becoming softer. To use it for face lathering, however, it would have to become softer still. The customer care team here told me that it would continue to soften, so I am very hopeful. I will say that the Yaqi 2-band badger required no break-in period and the tips on my Omega 49 boar were not poking my skin after two weeks. In the worst case I will use it for bowl lathering, but I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Yaqi silver tip badger, very impressed

First of all West Coast shaving is an extremely reputable company to deal with. Whatever you order here you cannot go wrong. I love my new yaqi brush. I've used it for about 2 weeks and it's getting ice and soft now during the break in. It started out a little scratchy but I expected that. It is already in the top three brushes that I own as one of my favorites. Speaking of my favorite brush, I also bought it here it is the West Coast shaving honeycomb handle badger brush.

Best of the Bunch

I bought six Yaqui brushes. Four synthetic and two badger. This one was the pick of the litter. For the price I don't think you can go wrong with this brush.

For the price, surprisingly good!

You would expect quality like this at a much higher price point. It does have a little bit of a scritchyness but after a few uses it really softens up. It has a very good loft and softness as well as a very pleasant long handle. I wish it wasn't as scritchy but for the price it really is unbeatable.
