I'm new here and have been enjoying the wealth of knowledge. I've been shaving the traditional way (badger and blade) for about a year or so now and am looking to upgrade my equipment as my finances allow. I've been using a mediocre "best badger" brush I think I bought from the "shave shack" a while back and am looking to upgrade to a nicer one, preferably a super badger or silver badger. I think I want one on the smaller size (not completly sure).
I shave both my head and my face in the mornings and generally use a cream (I like proraso for the tingling and cost). I want a luxurious brush that will whip up a nice lather but one that will be economical on the creams (when I can afford it I love a nice lavender or rose cream). I'm sure you guys have some ideas. Since I don't have the money to purchase an army of wonderful brushes to try out I'd like to shoot for perfection the first time around!
