Brushes listed by wood type - left to right.
We've been working with this fantastic Muhle Synthetic Shaving Knot for years now and we couldn't be more satisfied with its' performance. The fibres are softer than badger with excellent water holding and lathering characteristics. Washpool commissions a wood turner to add beautiful Australian grown timber handles (a touch longer than the standard Muhle handles). You'll be enjoying this brush for years to come as I've yet to see it lose a hair or deteriorate over many, many demonstrations.
Good for you and even better for badgers.
This is what Muhle have to say about their revolutionary fibre:
With this long-lasting synthetic fibre in premium quality we succeeded in achieving a world first and in proving that art is capable of surpassing nature. The particularly low-maintenance fibres, which are suitable for vegans, are processed by hand and very soft at the tips, but somewhat firmer than natural hair in the middle section. Other product features: Even with very small amounts of shaving soap or cream it produces a rich lather, and the brushes dry quickly after use.
