Shaving Brush. Not Without Badger Hair.
It takes a shaving brush with fine badger hair tips to produce fine pored, creamy lather for a skin-friendly shave. The best brushes are made from silver tip badger hair, plucked from the white silver tip badger. It is decidedly finer, softer and more flexible than grey badger hair. The conically tapering hairs can absorb lots of water and generate especially thick and creamy lather – with a good soap. The three-colour pattern is typical for the high quality of fine silver tip hair: light underneath, dark, almost black in the middle and lighter toward the tips. The clearer the pattern appears in the brush and the dark middle section of the hair shaft, the mirror, so to speak, the more carefully were the hairs harvested (they are in fact plucked) and processed – both by hand. The hairs are inserted upside down in a vibrator bowl and shaken and vibrated until the desired contour emerges. To protect the fine hairs, the brush is not mechanically finished: In the last step, the brush maker removes stray hairs, which are hardly visible to the untrained eye. With the appropriate use and care (softly lathering the skin, thoroughly rinsing the soap from the bristles with warm water and hanging the shaving brush to dry) a badger hair shaving brush will last ten years.
