BIG brush, great feel and lather,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shaving Factory Hand Made Shaving Brush Large Size (Personal Care)
I already use the Shaving Factory XS brush (which is excellent, by the way) and purchased this based on knowledge of the XS version and the other reviews here.
For the price I can heartily recommend this large brush for the following reasons:
* It's really big!
* Having longer bristles means it feels a lot softer than a short bristle brush.
* It really generates great lather.
I can't emphasise how wonderful this feels on the skin... for the money you won't, I think, find better, and it quickly whips up a great lather.
On the negative side, the brush I received was not as well constructed as the smaller (XS) brush: The bristle glue extends above the ferrule, and is a little uneven, and the ferrule itself is seated unevenly. I've had no problems with shedding bristles and everything feels perfectly solid but I have to say the construction looks a little less professional than I'd like.
Obviously there's a limit to how good a very low priced shaving brush can be, so if you can ignore the construction quality niggles then this is a great budget buy.
TLDR; Performance is good, but appearance is workmanlike. Recommended at the price.
