Bearing a bulb rather than fan-shaped knot, the Classic Silvertip Shaving Brush with Faux Tortoise Handle has been optimized for control without sacrificing its potential for efficient lathering. Bulb-shaped means that the hairs have been shaped for a rounded appearance, resulting in a more precise brush that is perfect for lathering in bowls and other small containers. At the same time, the soft and luxurious silvertip badger hairs ensures outstanding water retention, enabling it to lather with minimal effort and maximum convenience. Combined with the beautiful handle of faux tortoise, these elements have resulted in a product that is both beautiful and practical.
Fendrihan is a Canadian retailer that strives to bring the best brands to a North American clientele in search of solutions for their classic shaving needs.

I decided to try this brush for a change. I love it! Perfect firmness, great shape and holds up well.
Easy to lather both soaps and creams. Soft with back bone, nice felling on the face. My only concern is it's lost 26 hairs in 6 shaves. If this continues at this rate the brush will be unusable in less than a year.
I can't speak about more expensive brushes because this is now the best brush I own, but I used to use a boar brush before this and it's a very noticeable step up in my experience. The boar brush is still completely capable and does a very adequate job. Mine has lasted me for close to 5 years so far with very few hairs lost, no odour of any kind, is still usable and cost me less than $20. This brush is fantastic. Bristles are soft, but firm. Lathers up soap effortlessly. Softens quickly with warm water in a few minutes in a shaving mug. If it lasts me anywhere near as long as my old boar brush it’s a great value. I’d buy another in a heart beat. It's a definite difference in price from the old boar brush, but in my opinion you also get what you pay for. Not to mention the Fendrihan branded brush is the least expensive silver tip I've found. It's one of those exceptions where the most expensive is not necessarily always the best quality. And where house brand is actually not only acceptable, but preferable. I read the same comment in another purchasers post and couldn’t agree more. If I had it to do over again I would buy this brush without hesitation.
My 22 years old Plisson Silvertip Badger Brush has not lost one single hair over the years and is still by far my favorite. I was looking for a cheaper brush to give the Plisson some relief and I do not regret my purchase. The Fendrihan brush is an excellent value for the money. It is not as soft as the Plisson, but close. Shipping was fast.
It delivers all I would expect from a high quality badger shave brush.
