An updated take on the once ubiquitous design of the EverReady C40 Shaving Brush, the Fine "Classic" 20mm Shaving Brush maintains the great look, but replaces the antiquated bristles of the original with your choice of modern synthetic fibers or densely packed badger hair knots.
Badger hair brushes are prized by wet shavers the world over for their natural water retaining properties, and they are graded based on their softness and color. The Fine Classic 20 mm Shaving Brush is offered in three grades:
- Best Badger -
- Unlike lower graded badger hair knots, Best Badger knots are
distinguished by the fact that they are not clipped on the ends to shape
the bulb of the brush. Instead, the thickness of each hair diminishes
naturally, becoming soft and fine at the end. Best Badger Knots do
however remain the most course of the un-clipped variety of knots
available. It is important to note that course hair in a shaving brush
does has its advantages, especially when it comes to loading the brush
with harder soaps and exfoliating the skin.
- Super Badger -
- Super badger hair is a finer gauge of hair and has a softer feel than
best grade hair. Super badger is not as readily available as best, and
it is harvested from the back of the animal. The hair has a distinctive
color pattern with a black banded midsection in the hair and whiter tips
than the lower quality hair types. Because the brushes are filled with
finer hair, more individual hairs are required to fill the brush's knot
making them very dense yet soft and luxurious in feel.
- Silvertip Badger -
- Found only in the neck area of the badger, Silvertip is the rarest
and highest grade of hair. Like super badger hair, Silvertip has a very
distinct color banding, yet it has the softest and most luxurious
natural tips and usually the most defined contrast in color between the
black and white color bands. Silvertip Badger can also boast being the
only grade of Badger Brush that is never color treated.
