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 is slightly carved, adding a unique character to this quality brush.

Presentation: this brush is delivered in a small wooden barrel, which can be used afterwards as a piggy bank, pencil pot, tea box... Due to its natural and handmade design, not one barrel is identical to the other. Some are clearer, others are darker, some slight misalignments can appear.

Just received the brush today and did a test lather with it. The handle is really solid, has nice weight, and I really like the clean retro look of it. The knot is fantastic. Very soft tips, great backbone, but also splays very well. It's not a high-density knot but just dense enough, which means the flow-through is very good. Generated a very good lather very quickly. I'm really gonna enjoy using this.

Vandaag ontvangen. De Drake is een zeer mooie kwast. Degelijk om te zien, met een mooie volle Das. Het handvat is mooi lang en ligt goed in de hand. Zo te oordelen is dit een topkwast.

J'ai mis cinq étoiles pour ce blaireau de rasage parce qu'il n'y a pas six étoiles ! J'ai une petite collection de brosses de rasage et celle-ci après plusieurs utilisations est sans conteste entrée dans mes favorites. Le look et le design sont très originaux; la préhension est excellente notamment avec la partie inférieure à facettes. Le manche est bien réalisé et les couleurs sont jolies. Et je n'ai pas parlé de la qualité de la touffe ! Nous sommes sur de l'excellent niveau, point. Pour moi les dimensions sont parfaites. Cette touffe possède un pouvoir caressant et massant assez hallucinant. Mais un blaireau Darwin, ce n'est pas qu'un blaireau: il y a un univers, un packaging hors du commun. Tout est soigné jusqu'au petit mot personnalisé accompagnant le tout. Darwin c'est une expérience d'achat incomparable ! Merci !
