Author: Leigh Turner This brush was recommended to me & so far I'm not dissappointed at all. It has a good shape & produces a good lather to get you up & running for a perfect shave. It works well in tandom with the Proraso Shaving Cream Jar. Highly recommended. A+
Author: Brian Binns I've been using a cheap brush I got in spain, when this one arrived in the post I was very pleased upon opening the box. Lovely firm feeling dark and light badger hair. It's a nice weight for it's size and the handle is well shaped too. Just don't get any luxury with shaving foams so a brush and lather is the way to go. Comes in a nice little box, I also chose the white drip stand. Recommend to anyone wanting a good brush for a low price.
Author: Graeme Couttie Larger than it looks in the picture. Loses a little hair at the start but soon settles down. Has a nice solid handle with a nice seamless finish. Very pleased and would recommend to all!
Author: ROY CROSS THE BUCCANEER SHAVING BRUSH IS A GOOD BRUSH HOLDS WATER WELL AND WIPS UP A GOOD LATHER I BOUGHT THE BRUSH ABOUT A YEAR AGO WITH THE WOOL FAT SOAP WHICH IS ALSO AGREAT SOAP AND CANT FAULT THEM I HAVE TENDER SKIN SO I HAVE TO BE CAREFULL WITH SHAVING SOAP AND SOME BRUSHES CAN AFFECT MY SKIN A YEAR ON NO PROBLEMS SO I WILL GIVE BOTH ITEMS A1 FORE PRICE AND IF YOU HAVE SKIN PROBLEMS BOTH ARE GREAT THANKS ALL AT SHAVING SHACK FORE GREAT PRICES
Author: Mert Ilhan I was hesitant first to order the "Buccaneer", but after seeing the difference with the synthetic shaving brush, I am just glad that I ordered. It holds the water in large amounts (which is crucial for creating a voluminous lather) and as I use it with a proper drip stand, there aren't any visible hair loss.
I highly recommend it as a starter to "Badger" Shaving Brush
Author: Gary Whittles Solidly made with minimal hair loss. The Buccaneer holds water well and releases just enough to ensure a thick luxurious foam. The artificial brushes I have used simply repel water and smear shaving cream across your face. The Buccaneer is a cut above and a not too expensive foray into the pure Badger shaving brush world.
Author: Dan Armour Fantastic brush at a fantastic price, this brush has a an extremley high quality and is great value for money. The quality of this brush is easily comparable to brushes £10-£20 more expensive than this, it has great water retention, the bristles are nice and soft which is a big plus for me having sensitive skin; however the bristles are prominent enough to get a nice thick lather with a lot of moisture.
Handle is nice and firm, brush just looks simple and stylish.
Thanks again Shaving Shack!
Author: Henrik Fredriksson I gave this to my father in law for a christmas present. He stated this was a VERY superior brush and was still raving about it after a couple of months. If this is your first brush and you HAVE to decide between others I would start with this brush. Very much brush for your bucks indeed.
Author: Matthew Broadbent This is my first badger hair shaving brush and so far I am impressed! Produces a good thick lather when used in conjunction with a good soap. Initially loses some hair, but stops after a few uses. Comes well recommended, especially for a beginner who may be sceptical about these type of brushes.
Thanks Shaving Shack! Another fine product without the price tag!
Author: James Dabir received this today,this brush is incredibly soft for pure badger,I also have a vulfix 660 which is pretty scrubby on my face and mainly suitable as a soap brush,if you are looking for a decent inexpensive badger brush this is it.
Author: David Corcoran This is the perfect brush to use, whips up a lather with ease. Stay's so warm. And works along side Mitchell's Wool Fat soap.
Author: Gary Stanton Ah the shave shack buccaneer pure badger brush……the first thing I brought from shave shack a few years ago and it has remained the foundation to my shaving routine. The weight and shape of the handle is ideal for creating and maintaining a good level of lather on the direct to face way of lathering up that I prefer to use. The pure badger hair has the feel of one of the more expensive brushes and the water retention quality it has is second to none. A great pure badger brush at half the price as the other brands. Why spend lots when you can have the shave shack buccaneer.
Author: Peter Depledge Having used synthetic and bristle brushes in the past, I had ignored the badger option as an expensive luxury. How wrong I was. Not only is this brush reasonably priced, but it's a whole step change in lathering up. It holds much more water than my previous brushes, which makes for more, and finer lather. It's comfortable to use, and matches the ivory drip stand. First use sees a couple of hairs coming loose, but after that it's fine. If you've never used a badger brush, then it's time to move up. And priced like this, there's really no excuse.
Author: Richard Bradley It's well worth the money, but then it isn't expensive. I've had mine for 10 months now and it hasn't stopped shedding hair (though I will admit there is still plenty left to shave with). It's a little scratchy and may be uncomfortable for someone with sensitive skin, but it's a good solid starter brush to use for a year or so before upgrading to something a little better.
Author: Stephen J Baker This is a very smart brush. It looks good in the bathroom and performs well. The handle is easy to grip, making it quick and easy to whip up a lather. I have not noticed any shedding of badger hair from the brush. On the contrary it is well made, stylish and great value.
Author: Lassi M My first brush ever, i like it alot. It makes good lather and feels pretty good, it is little pointy feeling at first but i think that it softens in use. I like it and i recomend it to others in need of cheap brush.
Author: Matthew Allen My first badger hair brush. I was a bit sceptical upon ordering as it is such a low price compared to other badgers but my negative feelings were all wrong. It's bigger than it looks in the picture and has a nice soft feel (compared to synthetics anyway). The handle is very solid and nice to hold. Water retention in this thing is incredible and it holds enough lather for a few passes (good for 'face latherers'). It had some hair loss at first but it is holding well considering I'm quite rough with it sometimes. I have to squeeze it after a shave to remove the high amount of lather it holds and although it looks a bit beaten after, a quick shake under the tap it's good as new. I will invest in a larger more expensive model but out of curiosity only because I can see this lasting a very long time.
Author: Dr Porridge Just switched from a synthetic brish and can't believe the difference. It's great quality for the money and whips up a mean lather - even with hard water... Well worth a try...
Author: Craig Williams This is my first brush to go along with my first order of DE razor supplies.
I wanted a badger brush as I have read that badger is the easiest to whip up a lather with. I also wanted to try to keep costs down and not do my normal approach of upping the budget and ending up with something I probably didn't need. So pure badger it was..
Not having used a shaving brush before I didn't really know what to expect or have anything to compare it to...It seems to be a good quality item that can whip up a shaving cream very quickly. No hair loss and is soft while at the same time feeling strong enough to 'work' the skin a bit.
Very glad I was sensible and went for this as for now its all I need for a great shave.
Author: Nick Done I'm new to DE shaving so I have no direct comparison to make to another type of brush. However, I have found this brush to whip up a really good lather, very quickly. It holds a lot of water/lather and cleans up quickly when you've finished. I found it to shed a few hairs initially, but after a week this has stopped.
Author: Mr Dwayne This is my first badger brush purchace as I used a synthetic for the first time last week and wasnt happy one bit! I didnt want to fork out for one of the more expensive brushes available on this site and after reading reviews decided to go for this one.... GREAT DECISION!
It whips up my shaving cream (new to this also) in a couple mins to a nice thick lather! It retains moisture well and has a nice set of bristles.
If you are going to be getting your first/seconf/third brush... GO FOR THIS ONE.
Nice one shaving shack! 5*
Author: Simon Daniels Quite simply the best value brush around. Looks beautiful,feels well made (and I think in England) and works a dream. Good work Shaving Shack.
Author: Neil Jary I've been using a wilkinson sword synthetic brush for awhile; then tried a bluebeards bristle...and finally decided to try a badger brush! So I search the Shack and found this. WOW! What a difference a badger brush makes!
Build quality is superb and the brush feels just right in your hand; it has a nice heft to it. The shaping of the bristles is spot on as well! I really can't say enough how good the quality of this brush is! I would suspect you would pay double for a similar brush with a brand name on it!
If you've never used a badger before; don't mess around! Just do it! And this brush is the perfect one to start with!
Author: Andrew Cleeves This is a much softer brush than I'm used to and at first I thought it was too soft.
After using for a week I found that it created a very smooth and rich lather very quickly.
It wets well and only has lost a couple of hairs in the three weeks I've been using it and those in the first few days.
Overall I'm glad I bought it.
Author: Adam Clish over the past couple of months of finally jumpng ship from cartridges to double edge shaving! if been quite happy with my shaving set up. ive allways heard about badger brushes ect.. but never realy considerd anything wrong with my simple synthetic one. till for fathers day 2013 i wished for a badger brush. naturally i did the searching, wich wasnt hard any more as i had personaly purchased items off shaving shack before! so i new were straight to come;)
but like picking the right cream or blade ect.. picking a brush can also be tad of trail & error.
i went for shaving shacks very own "Buccaneer" as i thought they shurely wouldnt put there name on a brush if its no good? buy god did i pick a beaut!!! maybe its because my skin was so used to the harsh feel of my old synthetic? but this brush feels like a dream on the face. super soft to the touch and whips up a lather spot on! and with the matching shaving shack clear "drip stand" dries nicely with no loss of the badger hair. with a hand on my heart.. i strongly believe you wont find better for under £25.
Author: Paul Ewing I keep mine on the drip tray and still it loses hair like phil Collins!! :) I always shake the brush and store on stand
