One of the most common questions we get from fellow wet shavers is, "What brush should I buy?" Having put together a collection of various sizes and grades of brushes, it becomes very clear that certain brushes are better suited for certain shaving applications than others. The first thing that needs to be established when choosing a brush is the type of use you need out of it. Do you prefer to shave with a hard soap, or a soft cream? What about new styles of shaving, such as Method Shaving? As convenient as it would be, the fact of the matter is there just really is not a "one size fits all" model shaving brush. Aside from personal preferences on the physical aesthetics of the brush such as size, handle material, and color, etc., there very distinct categories for different styles of brushes.
