Silvertip Fibre - high-quality synthetic fibres, a world first: a premium quality developed in-house analogously to natural silvertip badger. Silvertip Fibres are tangibly soft, extremely long-lasting and somewhat less sensitive in everyday use as water drips of them and they dry faster than natural hair. The completely vegan fibres are more economically to use, create a particularly creamy lather from shaving soaps and creams but require only half of the amount of medium compared to natural brushes. Their solid fibres make them more hygienic and easier to clean.
High-grade resin requires expert craftsmanship. The material is turned from round rods and polished. Handles in this design are highly durable and possess excellent haptic properties.
I received this brush today and compared it with my Muhle 23mm that I have owned for 12 months and use daily. My 23mm is not only bone dry, it's condition is exactly the same as this brand new addition. These brushes are excellent. I am vegan but have not always been and have owned an animal hair brush in the past. With the quality of these brush, quick drying, hygienic and all positive things mentioned in other reviews I would highly recommend this synthetic brush over all others for professional reasons as much as anything else. Absolutely outstanding quality and worth every cent.
This brush does is all the things a far more expensive badger brush does - great lather, beautifully constructed etc. But if you have hyper-sensitive skin like me then there are good reasons to go for a synthetic over a animal hair brush. - No allergy inducing badger/boar oils - Solid synthetic fibres do not hold water or soap so the brush washes completely clean - Dries in minutes, so no moist damp soap filled habitat for bacteria - Softer tips than any natural hair brush I've had mine about three weeks and I have noticed a big reduction in razor burn and post shave irritation.
