This brush looks great, is a good size for holding in the hand, and is extremely soft right out of the box. No break in was required and it creates a ton of lather when put into use. This is my 1st badger brush and i was concerned it might smell bad per videos i have watched, but that was not an issue at all so i was pleasantly surprised and happy. Cost was also reasonable.
Really nice brush
Received this brush yesterday, and it is overall pretty nice. Tips are soft, hairs are densely packed, and it lathers fantastically. I docked it a star because there is a little imperfection in the blue portion where there's a whitish streak inside. There were a couple of fine scratches on the handle as well.
New Yaqi Silvertip
This is the 6th silvertip shaving brush that I own and it's one of ny favourites. It's got an old school look to it and the knot it densely packed. For the money I think that it's an awesome bargain. I'm totally satisfied with it.
