A striking countertop piece, Paragon's Plisson Type Synthetic Bristle Brush with Signature Handle is a first-rate shaving brush and a work of art. Hand-crafted in British Columbia, this handsome grooming accessory features a Mahogany wood handle, sourced from trees that range from El Salvador all the way over to Guatemala and Mexico. Each one displays its own unique wood grain pattern and an ergonomic design, for your most comfortable hold. The wood is naturally strong, and it behaves favorably when exposed to water, creating an outstandingly durable handle.
Densely gathered in the handle's center is a knot of high-quality synthetic bristles, modeled after the well-loved Plisson bristles. The stalk of the knot is firm, offering proper lather splay, and the tips are smooth against your face, increasing in softness with each shave. Stand this fine grooming accessory atop your bathroom counter, and be seduced into your most relaxing morning shave.

I have several Badger brushes (Plisson, Edwin Jagger, eShave, Art of Shaving), and wanted to try a synthetic. I looked around, read reviews, and then found the Paragon - I loved the design of the handmade wood handles and the fact that the bristles are so close in visual appearance to original badger that it's hard to tell. These are handmade in Canada and the quality or workmanship shows. I like the fact that the wood is locally sourced and product hand made. I tried the brush with several Creams and Soaps (Taylor, Art Shaving, NY Shave co) and found excellent water retention and lather. The synthetic bristles on the brush are slightly softer than silvertip, but I found it made a more comfortable lather with the same level of foaming and protection. You need less elbow grease and pressure. It took a few tries to get the soap/water balance perfect, but once I learned how the brush retained water, I found it easy to use and easier to clean and dry than badger. It shakes dry quickly and stores without issue. I really love the synthetic and haven't used badger since I bought this. . . . . . So I feel not only is it as effective as badger, and it's beautiufl, but it's also socially responsible (no animals harmed) and the handmade wood is from sustainable forests. Highly recommend. Looks like it's built to last and I'll be getting another to travel with. Customer support was great to quickly respond to questions. Try this one, you will not be disappointed.
