Kent Traditional Pure Grey Badger Shaving Brush is an essential and traditional shaving tool that has been hand crafted with pure badger hair and should, if used according to the instructions, provide a life times shaving pleasure.
We do not use bristle from the English Badger, nor have we ever done so, as it is a protected species.
Badger bristle traditionally comes from Manchuria, China. In these remote areas, the badger is regarded as vermin and numbers are controlled by culling. This species is far from endangered or protected, and Kent is, and always has been, most concerned that our raw materials satisfy every criteria of environmental and ecological protection. Badger hair is still the softest and most resilient material to use for shaving brushes, thus regarded as the best.
