Right out of the box I was impressed with this shaving brush! This model is commonly rebranded and sold by high-end vendors, such as Truefitt & Hill and The Art of Shaving, for more than double the price of the original Vulfix model. My brush is stamped with the custom logo from Lee's Safety Razors; however, Lee prices this brush the same as an Original Vulfix. Upon opening the blue presentation box, it was obvious this brush is very well made and easily surpassed what I expected for the asking price.
Being a Simpsons collector, I was a little concerned that the Vulfix would be a bit too floppy for my taste. This brush is actually on the medium side; not nearly as floppy as some others that I have seen. So how does it lather? Here is about 10 seconds on a puck of D.R. Harris Arlington Shaving Soap:
The performance speaks for itself. Obviously this is not a fully peaked soap lather, but in a only few seconds, you can see how much volume this super badger can produce from a traditional hard-milled soap. Bristle density is definitely not a concern. If you are looking for a travel brush or just a small brush in a convenient turnback format to use at home, this brush is a great choice. For only $60.00, the Vulfix Turnback Shaving Brush is an excellent value and a quality addition to every shaving brush collection.
