Guys, I now have all of the products I need for a perfect shave except a shaving brush. I have read every thread on brushes but still can not decide on which one to start with. I think I would prefer a smaller one but I am not real sure. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Wess

Some more info, particularly what you want/can spend, would be helpful. Also desired size, bristle characteristics, etc.

i am really enjoying my brush from www.saintcharlesshave.com. i would say it's a small best badger, and is available for close out pricing. if you're not looking for a huge brush or silvertip, this may work for you.

You have asked a very "personal" question. Two that I have an enjoy using are the St. Charles brush:
or the Edwin Jagger available at Crabtree & Evelyn:
I use both and like them both. Inexpensive, and if nothing else, will eventually make a good travel brush.

the above two suggestions are good. i like a brush that is a workhorse, not too soft and the bristles know how to make a thick lather out of soap.
i think a best badger brush is probably right up your alley...
While knot size, bristle category, brush shape, and handle are all very specific tastes, I believe that both Saville Row and Vulfix are two very fine brands of brushes and both very moderately priced. I would think you could find something pleasing from either company without putting too big of a dent in the pocket.

Thanks, for the suggestions. I decided to go with the Vulfix 374. I know it is very small but I think it might be right up my alley
For what it's worth, I think you've made an excellent decision with both the size of brush and the brand. Most members here will attest, however, that your first brush is simply a gateway drug and before you know it, you'll be a brush junkie like the rest of us (sadly the same holds true for soaps, creams, razors, aftershaves, colognes, etc).
Best of luck and enjoy your new brush.
