Parker - BCPB Black Handle, Pure Badger Shaving Brush
This particular shaving brush model has been one of the best sellers for many years. Parker 100% Pure Badger Bristle Shaving Brush.
The brush gets 4 stars because it hardly sheds AT ALL. This is a real plus because its annoying having to pick through my beard, bowl, razor, and sink having to dig out the hairs. The brush knot is so big, both in width and in length, that when the soft bristles hit my face it spreads out and covers half my cheek. It's a simple fix though: I don't hold the brush by the handle. Instead, I "choke up" on the hairs where they meet the handle, which works well to help tighten the spread and add stiffness by effectively shortening the hair length.
