This brush is the result of extensive research and intelligent design. It was conceived to be soft at the tips while retaining the best lathering capacity, to enable good control for face lathering, and to work efficiently with all shaving soaps and shaving creams. It is soft while retaining enough backbone not to be considered floppy.
The design was selected by choosing more rigid badger hair: the High Mountain White Badger hair. High Mountain White Badger hair is special because it retains soft tips which do not feel scratchy. The knot was made specifically for this shaving brush in a high-density format and contains 15% more badger hair than usually found for this size of knot. This allows for a higher loft, at 55 mm, without any loss in performance or floppiness.
The knot size is at a 22mm diameter allowing for more precise control of lathering.
Extensive testing was performed to ensure the best lathering possible for both face lather-er and bowl lather-er.
