If you are looking for a unique shaving brush that's made from super-soft synthetic fibres then this Rubberset 400 Tribute Black Synthetic Shaving Brush is for you. One significant difference is this version benefits from a 26mm, high-grade, super-soft, vegan, synthetic knot of hair. Pillow soft, yet with incredibly good backbone due to the density of the hair.
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 26mm, 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. Colour-anodising is not a plating, it cannot peel off. Composed entirely of aluminium oxide it is fully integrated with the aluminium substrate. The colour will not fade over the years and the finish delivers exceptional abrasion resistance.
The aluminium is CNC machined to a wonderful, flawless finish with a pleasing soft sheen. The handle is solid (not hollow) and two-piece, this allows you to unscrew for travel and, in time to change the head.
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.
Also included is an aluminium tin, when you're on your travels unscrew the handle and the brush will be protected and safe.
Bristle Diameter: 45mm
Bristle Length: 50mm
Total Length: 135mm (tip of synthetic fibre to bottom of handle)
Knot Diameter: 26mm

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.
This is a shaving brush for men who appreciate good design and retro looks. You'll love its generous dimensions and how soft the fibres are on your skin.
