    I be told you can rid the smell from the critter by having a skunk spray on it.

    I may be a little mad, but I actually like the smell of new Badger brushes. It tells me that this is the real thing, not an up to date, manipulated, fake, syntetic bit of cake.

    That's a good point. I've seen some of the man-made fiber brushes made to look like animal hair. Some of them are very convincing except for the smell.

    Someone told me it's like new car smell and after awhile he misses it. I'm not sure I could handle riding in a car that smells like a badger though at least not with the windows up.
    Love that new brush smell, and yes it does dissapear with general shaving and nothing special done to it, though the Borax is a popular option if it is unplesant to you. I guess New Brush Smell is connected with antisipation of your new brush, the eagerness of the first lather with it.... ohh fond memories!
