Shavemac... nuff said! Anytime you buy a shavemac, you know you’re going to get a solid brush, from a company that will stand behind it. Is it the best brush out there? Probably not – but shavemac brushes are always a close second, are always less expensive, and their quality is simply first rate. While I preferred their original silvertip badger hair their used to source, the new source Bernd uses provides a softer, more luxurious badger hair – which still makes for a superb brush.
Bristle – The bristle on this brush is exceptionally soft, and is superbly luxurious. The knot is densely packed, and this brush REALLY excels with shaving creams. It’ll work decent with soaps – but without question its strength is in shaving creams.
Handle – The handle is reasonably comfortable, and the pattern is certainly interesting. While it is dubbed “faux tortoise” doesn’t resemble tortoise in the slightest, it is an interesting “swirly” pattern, and looks neat.
Quality – Shavemac is the benchmark in quality. Enough said?
Overall – buying a shavemac is akin to purchasing an Acura – it’s luxurious, well built and will work reliably for eons. Shavemac’s aren’t really a soul touching implement, and are a bit cold to the touch (in my opinion) and do not have as much character as say a Kent, or even a Plisson – but they are exceptional tools of luxury!
