The Drake shaving brush is Darwin's tribute to a former American shaving brand. Their production was discreet but serious and well-made, with an original look. Darwin revisits one of the iconic models of this small factory, with this shaving brush.
The knot is made of real badger hairs, "white badger" grade in two bands. This rare grade is beautiful to the eye, but also combines several important assets for a luxurious lather and a pleasant shave. The body of the hair is a bit thicker for a good backbone and a brush that has character, but the tips left natural are as soft as a silvertip grade.
The handle is made of lathe-turned resin, as before. Resin is the most suitable material for use in a wet environment: its weight is perfect, its resistance to moisture and temperature changes is high and it allows to play with shapes and colors. Its flared foot and its facets gives it a perfect grip, and will allow you to hang it without worry.
The logos will be slightly carved (they are just flat on the photos), adding a unique character to this quality brush.
