  1. softer than boar Review by Mike

    Not as soft as a good badger brush, but fits perfectly in my routine. Good handle shape, and a perfect compromise on the bristles (Posted on 11/12/2014)

  2. If you haven't tried Horse hair... Review by JR

    This brush receivs high marks on all three..Quality, Uniqueness, and Value. Vie-Long is the premier name when it comes to horse hair brushes. They have a great history and tradition of producing high quality products. The horse hair is unique because it has the thickness and density similar to a boar, but once broken in, feels more like a badger. With that being said, be prepared to put some work into breaking in this brush. Just some advice, too much pressure while swirling the knot can create some tangles that will need to be combed out. If your curious about trying a horse hair brush, you cant beat the value at this price. Just put it in the cart... (Posted on 7/12/2014)

  3. I miss mine! Review by Richard

    I used to own one of these but during a recent trip it ended up being left behind.

    As others have pointed out - horse hair seems to fit that space between the softness of a badger and the stiffness of a boar.
    It really is a rather unique product (hence my '5 stars for uniqueness') and not something that you can find anywhere else.

    I am personally not a big fan of acrylic handles but when I received mine I was immediately impressed by how nicely it felt and the fit in my hand.
    It gave some most excellent shaves as it is very easy to build a nice lather with one of these brushes.

    Now I miss mine even more :) (Posted on 7/4/2014)

    It's not quite as soft as a badger, but not as much backbone as a boar. It's the perfect compromise. (Posted on 6/27/2014)

    Most brushes are badger or boar. Some Synthethics. But this is a rarer type of brush made from horse hair. It has the attributes of a badger and a boar. (Posted on 6/10/2014)

  6. A mix between badger and boar Review by Brian

    If you've never tried a horse hair brush, do it! Much more luxurious than a boar, but cheaper than a fine badger. They do require a little more care as far as combing out. Mine developed a little cowlick early on, but it doesn't affect the performance at all. Great little brush for the money! (Posted on 6/10/2014)
