Italy is a great source for the finest shaving brushes. Synthetic bristles are manufactured to be smooth, solid & non-absorbent. Animal bristles such as badger are like human hair (scaly often with a hollow core and split ends). In order to create a lather, shave crème and water have to penetrate badger bristles before product is on their surface. Also, animal bristles expand and contract through absorption of shaving product and water which can lead to bristle loss.
Comes with a stand.
Made in Italy.
