Big Jock Shaving Brushes come in Silvertip and Best grade badger hair as well as Super-Soft Synthetic Fibre. These are LARGE brushes that create an awesome lather from hard shaving soap pucks and soft shaving creams.
Grades of Hair Used
Silvertip grade badger hair is the top grade of badger hair used for shaving brushes.
Silvertip hairs as well as being the most expensive and rare type of badger hair are very soft on the face. Silvertip hairs are not bleached or dyed, what you get is natural, untrimmed hair. No other grade of hair absorbs and retains water and heat quite like Silvertip.
Best grade badger hair is soft on the face yet it will lift the bristles off the skin and soften them leading to a closer, more comfortable shave. Our Best badger brush hairs are untrimmed and undyed.
The handmade handles are lathe turned and polished and made from real black buffalo horn or a handsome faux horn.
Super-Soft Synthetic Fibre, are in many respects better than badger hair brushes for a number of reasons including no damp dog smell, no hair shedding, they're softer on the face than even silvertip badger hair and no animal had to die to make a synthetic shaving brush.
Taylor of Old Bond Street sell their Silvertip version for £138.50 and it comes with a plastic handle. Our price for the same knot of hair but with a real horn handle is priced at £75.00.
When we put our name to a product that is our guarantee of quality.
Finally - do not use HOT water on a shaving brush, hot water will damage the badger hairs and could lead to the handle cracking, please treat your Big Jock with tender loving care.
