This is the lower priced version of the Rubberset 400 Synthetic Shaving Brush. The only difference between the brushes is that this version is one piece, it does not have a detachable head. This brush has all of the other benefits of the higher priced version, so if it's a highly practical and handsome synthetic brush you're looking for this is the one for you. It benefits from super-soft tips yet it also has good backbone.
Rubberset Brushes were made in the USA from the late 1930s until 1957. The patent expired in 1984. Originals fetch crazy prices on eBay, they are extremely rare. The tribute market is dominated by high priced custom versions that are beyond the reach of many buyers. This is a tribute to the original Rubberset 400, the dimensions are a little bit bigger, the flutes and edges a little bit sharper - all to give you a better grip and a great shaving experience. One significant difference is this version benefits from a 25mm, high-grade, super-soft, vegan, synthetic knot of hair. Pillow soft, yet with good backbone due to the density of the hair.
No animal had to die and synthetic is a far better option for travel as the knot of hair will dry very quickly. Additionally, synthetic fibre shaving brushes are more durable than badger, they are not prone to shedding hair and they don't suffer from the dreaded damp dog smell that badger brushes can suffer from.
Our tribute Rubberset 400 Shaving Brushes are made from architectural/furniture grade 6063 aluminium and anodised to a nice sheen for added corrosion protection in the bathroom.
The aluminium is CNC machined to a wonderful, flawless finish with a pleasing soft sheen. The handle is solid (not hollow), it feels reassuringly well balanced in the hand.
The long handle delivers superb grip even when wet while the synthetic knot of hair will prove durable over many years.
Synthetic fibre hair is soft on the face and is suitable for face and bowl lathering of soft shaving creams and hard shaving soaps.
This OneBlade Stainless Steel Stand is the perfect match for this Brush.

The golden rule is to avoid using hot water, warm and cold water is fine but hot water can damage the synthetic fibres and loosen off the knot of hair in the handle. Read our shaving brush care guide and watch the video.
