The 1305 is an excellent boar brush. For me, it comes into it's own when I use it to make a lather from soap pucks. I had no problem quickly breaking it in - I just spent a little time early on making a lather, rinsing then repeating about 3 or 4 times. Did that again the following day and it seemed pretty soft to me. It makes great lather from creams and soap sticks so it is a versatile all rounder. This little beauty for less than £10 is remarkable value. The price is higher now.
This is my collection of shaving brushes. And some information which may help you to understand more about by whom and how brushes are made, as well as things to bear in mind when choosing and using a brush.
During early life I was known as Fido - so I use that as my internet identity where I can. I am a retired Local Government man who now enjoys a variety of interests. In these blogs I hope to share some of them with anyone with a shared sense of humour who may come across them. But they are mainly for my own interest as a reminder of some of the things I have done in my retirement.
This is one of them.
