Vulfix 2235 super badger

Item Description

This brush was my third (after an unmarked one and a Kent BK4). I wanted to try a bigger brush and, after trying it, I get stick to it...

Specs:
Handle height: 60mm
Overall brush height: 110mm
Knot diameter: 23mm

Price: You will pay £44.26 (excl. VAT) for this brush; this is not cheap but far from expensive either, and will not regret it (or at least I did not).

Quality: The brush is very well made, from the handle to the bristles. I was impressed by the quality of this brush, which didn't loss a single hair.

Density: The density isn't the strong feature of this brush. Even if the bristles are of a very good quality, it is not packed as tight as it could be. But the water retention is nonetheless excellent.

Stiffness/Softness: OK... I will not discuss this point. If you are buying a Vulfix, you know that you are heading for a SOFT brush; don't complain if you want a stiffer one... you have been warned :wink2:

Ergonomic: The handle, built in a faux ivory design, is beautifully made and very ergonomically friendly; I really like it. But be advised that it stands 60mm high... so if you have small hands it may be to big to be really comfortable.

Latherability: The Vulfix 2235 is - in my opinion - a wonderful cream brush... it is just a gorgeous brush: You don't need a lot of cream, just "wet" the bristles, a few swirls in a bowl and... TADA ! lather up to the wrist...

Conclusion: this is a very good brush, and you will not be disappointed by the money spent to buy it. If you are looking for stiff bristles brush, go away, this brush is not for you; if you are looking for a soft brush, you have already found it: a Vulfix 2235 super badger.

Pros: Nice weight and balance, creates and releases a lot of lather, fantastic face feel
Cons: None that I can think of.
This brush feels great in the hand and soft & luxurious on the face. It whips up creams and softer soaps effortlessly and holds enough lather for three or more rich & creamy-smooth passes. I typically use a denser, firmer brush, so this caressing beauty is a welcome addition to my morning routine. It's now my go-to cream brush, or when I have time to treat myself to multiple passes. There's a lot of brush here for the price - great value and quality.

The Vulfix 2235 is really the least expensive of the top luxury brushes, in my opinion. It is very well made; it has a solid quality feel, and it isn't a shedder. Sure, the bristles are soft and somewhat floppy, but there seems to be something of a stiffness fetish among brush users. [I think the psychologists call it projection. But I digress.] Soft, floppy quality brushes do have their place.

And it isn't THAT floppy. This brush gives a wonderful shaving experience with creams, and works fine with soaps if you pinch it around the knot's neck, or use an "O" ring to shorten up the loft. With either soap or cream, it holds endless amounts of lather. In fact, that's my biggest complaint: It holds so much lather that it encourages you to take longer shaving, which, well, takes longer. And by your sixth or seventh pass, the lather in the brush has gone cold.

The handle is excellent in terms of shape, size and weight. The 2235 is a fairly large brush; handled heedlessly, you'll end up with lather in your ears and up your nose. But you'll relish the experience.

I won't lie to you: I prefer my Commodore X3 and my Rooney 3/3. But the Vulfix 2235 can run with those dogs, and it is still in my rotation with them.

I really like this brush. This is the first medium priced price I have ever bought. I was currently using a very inexpensive omega pure badger brush. It was stiff, so I wanted something that was soft and floppy. This is defietely a high quality floppy brush. The laterability is fantastic, and I love the way the soft bristles and floppiness feel on my face.
