Surprisingly Comfortable
9/18/2017
Kent BLK2 Pure Grey Badger Shaving Brush, Black Handle My Edwin Jagger Super Badger had started shedding, and though comfortable was more pliable than I thought proper and beginning to feel positively soft. Looking through the alternatives I ran into this little gem. I was hesitant at first: the "pure badger" labeling and the description seemed to imply a lower grade of brush than the EJ. At the price point, though, it was difficult to say no.



OH BOY was this brush a good idea. It was stiff at first, but after break-in is only slightly stiffer than my old EJ, whisks up a solid lather in no time, and feels at once more stimulating and more soothing. I would recommend the Kent BLK2 to anyone wanting a brisk yet comfortable shave experience who has just a little patience for this brush to come into its own.



I am giving the BLK2 five stars both for its quality and for the price offered at WCS. Bravo, gentlemen.

Shavemac #25 23mm Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush, Faux Ebony I just couldn't resist it - a 23 mm Shavemac Silvertip Badger brush for 35% off. I knew I had to use it before my wife noticed the bigger brush so I would have to tell her I had to keep it. Turns out she never noticed the brush - she thinks I'm crazy for using a DE razor and thinks it's the "product", not the shaving, making my skin softer - but did notice the credit card statement. The Shavemac is definitely worth the heat I had to take. That first shave was sooooo good, with no break-in other than washing the brush with some pet shampoo. Great backbone, such soft tips, it held plenty of water and lather from the start, and just keeps getting better. Discretion is the better part of valor, the saying goes, so I haven't told her the regular price of the brush or how much I saved - not just in money, but in time by not having to order it from Germany. The service from WCS was sehr gut. Herzlichen danken.

Omega 6223 Pure Badger Shaving Brush I'm brand new to shaving with a double edge razor, and really enjoy the look and feel of this brush. Looks better than the picture for sure. Can't comment on much more since I'm a noob, but definitely enjoying the process and using the brush.

Very Good Brush

Shavemac #177-2B 23mm D01 Shaving Brush, Faux Ivory As an owner of several Shavemac brushes, this is one of the best. Since I prefer a larger knot (23-24) this fits the bill perfect. The brush makes good lather with both soaps and creams, and is very soft. That being said, it is a very soft comfortable brush that some may find too floppy/long. The bottom line is, you get what you pay for. This is my second best brush, my first is the Shavemac #177 23mm Silver Tip Badger Shaving Brush. You can't go wrong with either one!

Edwin Jagger Pure Badger Shaving Brush, Imitation Tortoise Shell The pure badger Edwin Jagger shaving brush is my first Jagger shave brush. I have others from Vulfix etc, but this one looks nicer and every few thousand shaves, I like to try a new brush! This is well made; lathers quickly and holds the lather perfectly! It rinses easily and dries quickly! Its a keeper in the brush rotation. I also popped for some WCS #1 Gatsby shave soap and splash! Excellent products! I love the quality and scent! Hoorah!

Simpson Commodore X1 Best Badger Shaving Brush X1B In short, I'll say this is a fantastic utilitarian brush. It's not flashy, it's not fancy, it's not big, and it's nothing you don't need. It's just a simple, comfortable-to-use, highly effective brush with a knot that I'm sure will be among the longest-lived in your den.



It's hard to tell from pictures how big an item will be when you receive it. Even if they give a visual scale, sometimes it's hard to estimate what that looks like in your hand. Well, this is a small brush, just so you know. IMO, that's a good thing. After reading reviews, I was a little worried my fingers might slip down into the deep hollow at the bottom of the handle. But upon holding and using the brush, I instantly realized that my man-sized hands would have absolutely zero issues here. My natural grip places three fingers just at the widest part of the handle, just below the knot. This provides a very secure and comfortable (relaxed) grip. and the handle doesn't seem to inch back into my hand, pushing my fingers into the lather. So, ergos are good.



The hollow at the base of the handle, being the handle is pretty small to begin with, makes it so that it can hang securely on my brush stand without touching the knot to the metal stand. That's a big bonus in my book. I don't like to repeatedly rub brush knots against metal. Experience tells me this will cause an acceleration in wear and tear on the knot. Most of my brushes, I resort to standing up on the counter, not using the brush stand.



As for the knot? I think you're not going to do better in terms of quality anywhere else. Equal, yes, but not better. I have various other badger and boar brushes, mostly hand-made. The knots vary in quality from extreme shedders to very solid quality knots. This one is among the best in my collection. I was actually expecting to get more use out of it before reviewing it, but turns out I don't need to.



Within four or five shaves, the wet-dog funk was gone. Now it smells exactly like the Arko soap I've been using lately. I was expecting the knot to shed for a while before "breaking-in", but to my surprise, the second shave pretty much marked the end of the shedding. It's dropped one or two hairs since, but for the most part is clean now.



The knot is fairly densely packed and provides a good bit of backbone. I'm typically a boar fan due to the backbone vs. badger. But this one provides a nice balance. Perhaps not as soft as either a silvertip or a well-worn boar, but very close to both, and right in the middle between the two in terms of backbone. It also has very good flow-through. After soaking the brush, I give it a good squeeze to remove most of the water, load the soap, and then go to the bowl to lather. With this brush, I don't actually need to add any more water during lathering. It whips up a perfect-consistency lather (with Arko) with only what water is left in the brush. And after lathering, I can reload the brush from the bowl between passes, but there's really no need on a three pass shave. The brush blooms out as it picks up lather, and blooms enough to hold three adequate passes worth of lather. If I want generous lather, I'll reload.

A Great Little Brush!

Simpson Classic CL 1 Best Badger Shaving Brush (CL1B) I have three Simpson brushes in my rotation (Duke 3, Classic 2, Classic 1). The Simpson Classic 1 has become my favorite, overtaking the Classic 2. This brush cuts hard soap like a pit bull and handles like a sports car. A bonus is that it's also a great travel brush. Either Classic is a must have, this one suits me best. I caught myself mine on a 20% off sale making it a super value.
