Edwin Jagger is Europe's foremost manufacturer of luxury handmade shaving equipment. Edwin Jagger products are crafted and hand-assembled in Sheffield, England — a city known for its rich industrial history. This 81P43 Imitation Tortoiseshell Shaving Brush (Pure Badger) is a practical and moderately priced pure badger shaving brush.
Manufactured using the best-quality plastic material, this shaving brush handle has a unique and eye-catching design with a beautiful blend of mottled yellows and browns. Moulded to fit neatly in your hand, this brush has a relatively slender design with a stylish ring around the middle and a flared base. The classic design is finished with the Edwin Jagger logo proudly displayed in the middle as a mark of the manufacturing quality.
With a knot size of 21mm (0.8”), this is classed as a medium-sized brush, making it ideal for most shavers. Whether you favour a larger or smaller shaving brush is down to personal preference but as a happy medium, this brush efficiently holds a good amount of water and soap while still offering plenty of control and precision. The handle measures 46mm (1.8”) tall and 32mm (1.3”) in diameter, fitting conveniently in virtually any hand and offering a firm grip even when lathering with wet or soapy hands. At 34g (1.2oz), this is also a medium-weight brush, proving nimble and versatile for applying the lather to your face.
This brush has a Pure Badger fill, which is very popular amongst those investing in a traditional shaving brush for the first time. Noticeably darker in colour, this is the most common type of badger hair, harvested mainly from the badger’s underside where the hair provides protection. The individual hairs are therefore thicker, giving the knot a much more rigid structure with slightly reduced flexibility and softness. While some shavers prefer a more delicate shaving experience from Super Badger and Silver Tip Badger, this grade of badger hair is perfect for those with thicker and faster-growing facial hair. As these hairs are particularly strong, they provide a firmer massaging effect, which is highly effective at exfoliating the face, lifting the facial hair and preparing the beard for shaving. The thickness of each pure badger hair means fewer hairs are required to achieve the desired knot density, making this the most cost-effective grade of badger shaving brush to produce. Pure Badger also has good water retention properties, allowing wet shavers to mix a light, luxurious lather easily and efficiently.
To keep your shaving brush in top condition for as long as possible, we recommend rinsing the hairs in warm water after every shave and then hanging to dry in a stand.
