Ok, I'm an experienced wet shaver, but I've never had a black badger brush. Pure badger brushes tend to be sparsely packed and very scritchy. Is black badger the same way, or is it different from most scratchy pure badger hair?
The same with me, i had for a while a FS black badger.I had a whipped dog black badger, I used it twice and got rid of it. It was just way too prickly for me, the tips felt like they were sticking into my skin when I face lathered. I do like brushes with soft tips however, so I'm sure its a YMMV thing.
