Shaving Brush, Oversized / Pure Badger
A shaving brush should be filled with real badger hair (and not synthetic or boar bristles), because badger hair is very fine and very elastic, even when wet. It is not porous and has only a fraction of the diameter of pig bristles (from which imitation badger hair is made for shaving brushes). With badger hair (and a good shaving soap), you can work up a very fine and creamy lather, which is what you need to make shaving gentle on your skin.
