One shave does not make for a good review. So, this is more of a size comparison with a few comments thrown in for good measure. First, this brush came in a kit from Ashfords with a tube of T&H almond shaving cream, plus a bottle of T&H classic ASB, and the brush. All for $60.00.
I took it in and whipped up a tremendous amount of lather using just a little T&H 1805 cream. (I thought it only fitting). Here's the brush after 3 1/2 passes.
Side by side with my Edwin Jagger for C&E best badger brush (a small brush also).
And from the top. Notice how dark the T&H is.
This may be the softest brush I own. If you're looking for a stiff brush, this isn't it. It is a very luxurious lather maker for not a lot of money.
I wouldn't have purchased this brush by itself because of its size, but since it was part of a kit.....it gets the nod
