My first brush on returning to DE shaving a couple of years ago cost £5. I was perfectly happy with it until I discovered the world of shaving forums. There are hundreds if not thousands of brushes in all price ranges. They will all serve the purpose of mixing and applying lather. In the collection of brushes I will describe later you will find brushes from less than £10 to around £200. A brush can be functional or an indulgence. Pay your money and make your choice.
Vulfix 404 Boar badger mix - £8
Simpson Chubby 2 Best - £100 +
