Best badger is a good-quality grade of badger hair, ideal for those looking for a less expensive and reliable shaving brush. It is one of our most popular grades of badger hair. The hair is more common than Silver Tip and Super grades and is taken from thicker parts of the pelt, including the underbelly. Best badger hair is generally shorter and darker in color than the finer grades although the colors of individual hairs vary from grey and brown to black. The hairs are less soft, producing a stiffer and slightly less flexible shaving brush knot that is ideal for preparing the beard and coarse facial hair while providing a firm exfoliating sensation. This grade of badger hair transfers a good amount of water so traditional shavers can whip up a rich and luxurious shaving lather with ease.
Clean your brush thoroughly between use to keep it in top condition for as long as possible. After shaving, rinse the brush in hot water, flick away any excess moisture and hang the brush on a stand with the hair pointing down. If you do not have a stand, leave the brush pointing up rather than horizontal so that air can get to all the hairs and dry the brush naturally. This brush will fit the Edwin Jagger small range of shaving brush stands available on our website. Do not use this brush with shaving oil.
