Badger and Blade and want to give it a full test. Look for a review post in the near future.
I have an inexpensive boar bristle brush I purchased from Stirling Soap last month and have enjoyed breaking it in. The interesting thing about boar bristle is that the tips will start to split and the brush will get softer with use. This brush is almost there and I expect that a month of daily use will get it right where I want it.
