Ive heard arguments that some synthetic brushes outperform traditional badger brushes. I have never used a synthetic brush, but the arguments for them make a lot of sense. It seems logical that a brush engineered to create shaving lather might outperform animal hair engineered to suit a badgers needs. Dont get me wrong. The properties of badger hair make it great for use in shaving brushes. That doesnt mean it cant be improved on. Anyone have thoughts or comments? Anyone have experience with synthetic brushes?
