Badger Shaving Brushes
I found it at VCS.
A badger bristle shaving brush was impossible to find. Been looking for some time. Husband kept asking, "Have you found one for me yet?" Huzzah! The Vermont Country Store catalog arrived and there it was. Husband is happy, and I'm happy as I found some other items we "needed".

I always wanted one of these. My grandfather used one in Ireland exclusively. Works great.

This product does have great features
I remember long ago my granddad had a brush similar to this one. I would watch him as he would put a little water into this bowl with soap in it and use the brush to work up a lather, it was very cool to watch as he would brush the lather onto his face. My husband had asked my last year if I had ever seen a brush like the one my granddad used and I said yes, but hadn't seen one since until I happen to receive one of your catalogues in the mail, started flipping through it and saw this brush. My husband was ecstatic when he opened this as his Christmas gift, wanted to know where I found it. I was very excited also.

I feel like a natural ma-an! (Sorry, Aretha.)
I've thrown my canned shaving cream, away! Vermont County Store came through, again! I purchased the pure bristle brush, ceramic bowl, and three round soap bars. Wow! What have I been missing for forty years! Love the hot lather and comfort of a safety razor. Clean up is so easy. Makes you feel "macho in the morning"!

My husband shaves the old fashioned way and loves your quality brushes.
You have a unique store where I can find things no one else has. I am 89 years old and like a lot of the old-fashioned things.
I still do things the old-fashioned way such as make my own preserves, jellies, pickles, etc. It is nice to be able to find things I use such as a hot water bottle/syringe,
shaving soap, hair nets, etc.

Overall excellence with a disappointing qualification
While the brush itself is first rate, the stand which you provide is beyond disappointing; its as close to being unacceptable as any product I've ever purchased from you. This cheaply molded plastic stand doesn't, in fact, "stand" but falls over at a breath and on virtually ever attempt to store the just used brush with it for drying.

What an improvement!
I hadn't used a shaving brush for over 40 years, but I do believe that the bristles of the last one I had were made of plastic. This one is wonderful. It makes great lather. I've never liked to shave, and if I can make any unpleasant chore more enjoyable, why not! Now I feel like I'm pampering myself. And (perhaps it's the Vermont Country Store soap) no little bleeding sites on my old face; much better than canned shaving cream. You should get one. I should say that I bought the deluxe badger brush.

Scratchy whiskers not for me
I purchased this for my husband for Christmas. Later I bought the soap to go with it. Since I have been promising him for about a year to order it, I thought maybe he'll be surprised Christmas morning.
