    Default Mach 5 convert.

    Hello all. I am in the process of transition from the bizarre dove soap lather and handless razor cartridge ritual that I have been doing every other day or so to wet shaving. The youtube videos have been very helpful for me; I went to Target and bought some Proraso shaving cream and soap. I just purchased this razor http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=260029718203 to get me started (the seller has two more if anyone else is interested).
    I also purchased a kent brush from ebay. It was a "badger effect" brush so it wasn't exactly top shelf, but it seems to do the job for now. Just what ARE those bristles made from anyway? It only cost me about 10 dollars or so including shipping from Great Britain.
    Thanks for all of the help.

    Hi Bob, welcome to B&B.

    The bristles in a bristle brush are boar hair.
    Cheers

All this electrical rubbish, little wheels spinning around all over the place for callow youths and peach fluff, Not for a man's beard. Razor blades for men! I think we'll have this on number 9. If you're going to have a shave have a close one!
