In addition to creating a rich, creamy lather, a good shave brush eliminates the need for a pre-shave routine of washing and applying lotion. The movement of the bristles across the skin works as a gentle exfoliant, lifting and softening stubble for a smooth shave. The modern shaving brush traces back to the 1750s when the French referred to it as a "blaireau," or badger—revealing that the oldest, finest brushes were made with the same pure badger hair as this brush.
Dip the tip of the brush into shaving cream or soap and lather gently using a circular or up-and-down motion. Work the lather a bit, then go ahead with your shave. After shaving, rinse the brush gently with clean, warm water from the tap. If you have a stand, flick excess water out and hand the brush on the stand. If you don't, lay the brush out on a clean, soft cloth to allow it to air dry. To avoid mildew, do not leave the brush submerged in water or enclosed in a small space while damp.
Wentworth Pewter was founded in 1949 in Sheffield, England by a skilled pewter craftsman who made pieces in his own home and sold them out of his suitcase. 60 years later, the company is renowned for world-class pewter products that are first spun on a spinning lathe, then assembled and polished by hand.
With its lustrous pewter handle and full-volume, velvety soft badger hair, this finely crafted shave brush lifts and softens hair for a smooth, close shave and less irritation. Crafted and polished by hand in Sheffield, England, a city known for its superior metalwork and quality craftsmanship.
