I'm looking to get a badger brush. Currently, I have an Omega Boar brush that I plan to use for soaps. I primarily use creams (currently Mr. Taylor). I think that I'm going to skip the intro level boar brush because I'm not really looking to start a collection, I just want 1 good one that I can use almost every day.
I'm looking for something soft, but with backbone, and a quality handle. I would like as big a knot as possible, but quality of the hair is more important to me. I would like to keep it under $175. Any suggestions?
