This shaving brush comes in an easy to gift wrap clear box that measures about 4.6 inches by 1.6 inch by 1.6 inch. The brush itself is about 4 inches tall.
When it comes to picking the type of shaving brushes, there are 3 types of brushes that are commonly found. They are badger hair, boar bristle, and synthetics. Out the 3 choices, badger hair is on the top of the list. Having said that, there are different grades of badger hair and they are listed as follow: Pure Badger, Best Badger, Super Badger, Silvertip Badger and Special Grades ( ie: Rooney, Plisson, and Simpsons)
The Bassion Hand Crafted brush is made with 100% pure badger hair bristles which is one of the most easily available type in the market. It’s availability, taken from the body make this hair the least expensive type and it’s a great starting point for people who would like to learn about wet shaving.
This brush has an ergonomic shape which makes holding comfortable and due to its texture, it lathers soaps well. You can definitely find softer bristles as you move up to the higher grades.
For a little shy of $11, this makes a wonderful starter brush for beginners. I hope to see the wooden handle to be finished with some type of oil to serve as a moisture barrier. This can prevent any chance of cracking or mold surfacing on the wood. Lastly, I rate the Bassion Hand Crafted 100% Pure Badger Shaving Brush with Hard Wood Handle 4 out of 5 Stars.
