Research Facts
Badger bristle is perfectly suited to lathering up with soap for a great shaving experience. It's extremely soft, dense bristles create a fabulous lather and readily absorbs water. The lathering process whips hot water, soap and air into a warm foam that cleanses the skin and lubricates the path of the razor. Water is a key element in a good shave and the more a brush can hold, the better the lather and shave will be. The fine tips of the hairs help to make a smooth and creamy lather and the exceptional softness of badger-hair cleanses the the face gently. "Best" badger hair is an excellent quality of pure badger hair and is normally regarded as the benchmark standard of shaving brush manufacturers. This quality creates lather far superior to the other grades. Dr. Corson was a graduate of University of Toronto School of Medicine, Class of 1941. His general practise was in his Scarborough home from 1947-1983.
