Yaqi 24mm Aqua Two-Band Badger Hair Shaving Brush

Pros: Good backbone, soft bristles, solid handle, very little bristle loss
Cons: None for me
Oh man I really like this brush. It was the second badger hair brush I ever shaved with and the first two-band badger. This has the perfect amount of backbone and density for me. The bristles are soft but still have a bit of scritch. I've been using mostly boar since I started DE shaving a year ago, and I kind of like a little scritch so this brush is perfect for me. I find it so easy to lather soaps and creams with this brush. It's a real pleasure. The sale price was right too at $13!

I like to splay my brushes a few times while I face lather. This brush has just the right amount of splay with it's 55mm loft. I'm still getting used to badger brushes, so my opinion may change, but for know I like this two-band badger even better than the Yaqi slivertip I got. There was some shedding of the bristles but not much. That's pretty much stopped now that I've been using it for a while. The handle has a nice solid feel to it, is easy to grip, and looks great!

Looking forward to a lot more shaves with this brush

Hey @cytus I picked it up from AliExpress on their once-a-year Nov 11th (11.11) sale. Regular price is $30 but for the sale it was just $13. I picked up four badger brushes for the price of two basically! Be aware that they sell out fast at the sale price and that shipping is slowwwwww. Like one month slow. But hey, it was a great deal :)
