An inexpensive, firm-bristled brush with a heavy chrome stand. Yes, it smells like a badger until you use it.
For under $20 this is a very serviceable genuine badger brush. Add in the fact that it comes with a really nice stand and its a steal. The brush is a little stiff at first but it softens after a couple of uses. It did shed a few hairs but nothing to be concerned about.
The biggest complaint on Amazon is that the brush smells like a badger at first, and it does. But let’s use some logic:
- It’s made out of a badger’s fur so its not surprising that it smells like one.
- You’ll literally be lathering this thing in scented soap three times a day until it wears out. It will smell like sandalwood after one use.
So don’t let any bad reviews deter you. This is a decent brush at a good price and its a good choice to get started.
