Break In Service
Let us do the dirty work!
All new badger hair brushes need to be washed thoroughly prior to using for the first time.The badger’s natural oils keep the hair supple and prevent drying and breaking during manufacture. These oils also mean the brush smells like a badger. Proper washing is required to remove these oils (and dirt). This drastically reduces the smell and prepares the brush for proper lathering. Failure to properly break in your brush will result in unpleasant aromas and can affect the quality of your shave - and the life of the brush. Detailed break in instructions are included with each brush, but if you prefer, we will perform the break-in procedure on your brush before we ship it (adds 1-2 days to processing time).
