The Pure Badger Shaving Brush by Taylors of Old Bond Street is a handmade and hand-finished shaving brush with very soft hair. It is ideal for beginners who want a traditional wet shave experience. By using a circular motion, you can work up a rich lather while saving excess cream and water for a close and comfortable shave. Pure badger hair is from the back or legs of a badger. The hair is coarser than that of super badger but still produces a rich lather and a pleasurable shaving experience. The medium size is ideal for daily use and the black handle gives it a luxurious look. The brush is also available in imitation ivory and in a smaller size.
