    Default Which brush do you think is better?

    Has anyone tried using a the pure badger brushes from art of shaving? I'm looking to buy a new brush, nothing more than 60 bucks. I also saw an Edwin Jagger best badger brush. Would you recommend that over the AoS?

    I have a AOS Fine badger brush and it is very nice. A little expensive but quite nice. My second favorite so far.

    This one is my favorite http://bentonclay.com/?page_id=31&shopp_pid=46

    What brushes do you have already and what do you like and dislike about them

    I've seen aos brushes in store and while they are nice I don't see them as a great value.

    IMO you will be better off getting a brush from one of the shaving websites.

    X2. Rooney style 2 silvertip, but you'll have to spend 5 bucks more. It's worth it.

    I actually started off with a lil starter brush from AoS. It's a little coarse but it does its job. I'm relatively new to straight shaving and don't know the finer points between brushes yet. I see brushes that are pure badger going for 37 like the ones from ny shaving co and then there are the rooney ones. Is there a big difference between them?

    With AOS you pay for their name. They are made by someone else so there is an extra premium there. I would go with one of the established names.
