Hi - this is Bridget Jagger responding to the various comments about our Edwin Jagger best badger shaving brushes. We have a range of shapes, materials and sizes which hopefully meet the needs and pocket of any prospective purchaser. Interesting to hear the comments about the latherability.
Neil and I have been discussing this recently from the point of view of which of our brushes may be best suited to use with a hard shaving soap as opposed to a soft shaving cream. Certainly some of the super or silver tip badger hair, which is soft, luxurious and sometimes longer, is not as satisfying when used with hard shaving soaps however, the length and density of the hair is really the key. Best badger brushes will perform well with hot water and any soap or cream.
Our newest luxury brushes with silver tip fill are excellent with either hard soap or soft shaving cream as the hair is a little shorter and denser and therefore not as floppy. To isolate them they are at this link - http://www.theenglishshavingcompany....having+brushes
We think these brushes, whilst not inexpensive, are excellent value for your money. They were also highly rated by the mods at B&B who evaluated them a few months ago.
Happy lathering! Sheafshaver
