Bristle: Ever wondered what is the best bristle available for a shaving brush? The answer is simple. Silver Tipped Badger. Silver tipped badger is the highest, rarest and finest grade of badger bristle available. It is considered 1st grade and for good reason. The extremely luxurious and plush nature of the bristle make it a treat to use. The hairs hollow and porous nature allow the bristle to retain water, which when stroked with a fine shaving soap or cream convert to a generous lather. The hair is renowned for its ability to massage the delicate facial skin to open the skin pores to not only allow a clean sweep of the pores for a hygienic shave, but also to smooth the skin for a closer shave. You will immediately recognize the texture of the silver tipped badger bristle from first use. Once you try Silver tipped badger you will never go back to anything else.
