When I go to stores I look in their shave are just to see if maybe they added anything traditional. The brush looks nice. It feels super soft kinda similar to synthetic but says its badger. I have my horrible silver tip badger from wd and the VDH felt way better then it. Thought silver tip was suppose to be softer then the Lowe end badger brushes. 0.o it's kinda tempting me, but it cost twice what a synthetic does.

unless you're wanting a badger, I'd probably just go with a synthetic that razorock or maggard is putting out.

The VDH brushes in my experience shead like crazy until the knot falls out.

The other stuff is decent, but I'd skip the brushes. I once brought the kit for the bowl and stand.... The brush became a sink cleaner until it shead so bad it was creating a bigger mess...

Yeah I'd heard that they shred a lot.

I have 24 mm plisoft, 24mm maggard, 22mm Stirling, white and black satin tips and next month the 26mm monster.
I've become addicted to synthetics after my bad experience with badger

You guys are right I resist temptation . Sure looked and felt nice though lol

I'm a little late to the party here, but I bought the VDH Badger brush last year when my "Perfecto" exploded. Save your money! My VDH Badger was a horrible shedder, too.

For $19.99 you could get the Razorock boar brush in olive wood handle. This is my absolute favorite brush. Wicked soft right out of the box, no funk at all ever, sheds very, VERY little, has great splay and good backbone, and scrubs the hairs to stand up without causing scratchiness against the skin.

IMO, razorock boar is the best $20 natural fiber brush on the market, bar none.

I agree with the compadres, many better options on that price range.

I've had one for around 3 months, and yes, it does shed a lot. It also STILL has the funk! I have tried everything to get rid of it and it just won't go. DO NOT buy this brush!
