A partnership of exotic wood and premium white badger hair, the H.L. Thater 4292 Precious Woods Series Silvertip Shaving Brush 28 mm, Cocobolo Handle offers luxury a dedicated wet shaver quickly will become accustomed to enjoying every day. The German brush master selects only the finest badger hair for this classic double-band brush, and then expertly over stuffs the knots for an exceptional backbone. Hand shaped for a robust blossom, the hair creates a superior lather whether the shaver chooses a cream or bar shaving soap, the badger soft but assertive enough to lift the whiskers for a close and smooth shave. The richly hued cocobolo handle is footed in polished metal, a handsome contrast with a decidedly masculine feel. Cocobolo wood, indigenous to Central America, particularly the Pacific coast highlands, is well suited to the task of supporting the hair in a badger brush as it is resistant to water and also heavy and substantial in the hand, assisting with a proper lathering of the soap and then the face. Its beautiful coloration can range from black through yellow, red, and even pink, with the occasional striations of blue, purple and green, although the deeper hues have been hand-selected for this gentleman's shaving brush. Treat yourself or that special man in your life with this truly precious wet shaving essential.
