The shaving brush is to the shave what tires are to a car. Your brush will whip up a huge lather from a tiny amount of product, helping to provide you with protection and glide during the shave. The action of the bristles exfoliate your skin and soften your hairs, making them easier to shave.
"Best" Badger hair has a stiff backbone, so it lathers soap quickly and exfoliates your skin efficiently. It is not as soft as the luxurious silvertip, but those with coarse hair may prefer a stiffer brush. The faux-horn acrylic used for this handle is well shaped, making it very comfortable to hold, while maintaining enough weight to be balanced.
About Kent of England - The famous brushmaker was formed in 1777 and holds an unbroken record for superior performance and quality. This quality has been recognized with royal warrants from nine generations of the English royal family. Their offerings now range from grooming brushes to shaving, setting the standards in their field. It is not unheard of for a brush made by Kent of England to last up to 50 years, providing it is well cared for.
