Edwin Jagger Grey & Chrome Shaving Brush (Black Synthetic). The handle of this shaving brush has a smart appearance with chrome plated collar and end cap. Synthetic fibre is an ethical, vegan-friendly, affordable alternative to badger hair. This type of fill is becoming increasingley popular as synthetic fibres are extremely resistant to problems associated with lather residue in natural badger hair brushes. They are very firm in the middle, allowing them to retain their shape and they dry exeptionally fast, making brush maintenance easier than ever. The black synthetic fibre retains hot water which, when combined with shaving cream or soap, can create a creamy lather that emulates the experience of using real badger hair shaving brushes, offering a comparable shave that is equally as pleasing.
