Kent have revamped their range of luxurious shaving brushes, now providing a line of different sizes and handle colours using the finest Silvertex synthetic fibres. This Large Synthetic Ivory White Shaving Brush is the perfect way to achieve a traditional shave in the modern era.
These bristles have colours that imitate silver tip badger hair and are crimped, allowing just the right amount of water to be held by the fibres, resulting in a perfect lather. Their synthetic nature also means the fibres do not stiffen through drying, like badger hair - they retain their softness regardless.
Kent brushes are handmade in England and completely fulfill the quality and craftsmanship requirements one would expect from this company. Established in 1777, Kent are one of few remaining manufacturers of brushes in the UK. In fact, they are one of the oldest British companies in general, and hold a Royal Warrant, having supplied to the Royal Household for nine consecutive generations.
These fibres are suitable for all types of facial hair and their soft/synthetic nature make them especially good for sensitive skin. While it's named Large, this brush is the middle of three sizes of shaving brush that Kent offer. It can be used with shaving soaps, creams and gels.
Your product of choice can be applied straight to the face, but whipping it up in a shaving bowl often ensures the most successful lather with the perfect amount of water added.
While synthetic bristles are generally more hardy and long-lasting, remember to always rinse off suds in lukewarm water and then gently shake off any excess moisture. The brush is then ideally stored bristles down on a brush stand to complete the drying process. With proper care, yours should last for decades.
We stock the same brush in extra large and medium sizes, and with a black handle instead of imitation ivory. You may also like to browse the rest of our collection of shaving brushes from many different brands.
