Wet shaving is a luxury, but only when it is done properly. Applying shaving cream by hand before a shave mats the whiskers or raises them unevenly. Shaving brushes on the other hand have been used for centuries to soften and lift the beard so the razor does not need to be pressed to the skin in order to provide a close shave.
In all the years that shaving brushes have been in use, no material has ever been found that equals the badger bristle brush. Badger bristles generate a rich, warm lather and bring the right amount of water to the face to enable a close and comfortable shave with less razor skipping and dragging.
New on the ASW store this week are our best quality badger bristle wet shaving brushes, with your choice of handles made from genuine ox horn or stag’s antler. They make a wonderful gift, especially to yourself.
