At Truefitt & Hill, we understand that the experience is just as important as the outcome.

One of the central elements to this ritual is the shaving brush, and our Silvertip Badger Brushes stand as a testament to our commitment to excellence.
What is a Silvertip Badger Brush?
Silvertip badger hair is renowned in the grooming world for its unparalleled quality. Sourced from the neck area of the badger, these hairs are the softest, most resilient, and the most luxurious available. The 'silvertip' refers to the natural colouration of the badger's hair, which is lightest at the tips, creating a striking silver effect.
These hairs are known for their exceptional softness, flexibility, and water-retaining capabilities, making them ideal for building a rich and comfortable lather. When you lift a Truefitt & Hill Silvertip Brush, you're not just holding a tool; you're holding a piece of tradition, designed to transform your daily shave into an indulgent experience.
The Craftsmanship Behind the Brush
Creating a Truefitt & Hill Silvertip Badger Brush is an art form, combining traditional techniques with meticulous craftsmanship. The process begins with the careful selection of the finest quality silvertip badger hairs. These hairs are then expertly sorted, cleaned, and arranged by skilled artisans.
The bristles are then hand-bound and set into handles crafted from the finest materials. Each brush is assembled with precision, ensuring that the bristles are at the optimal density and length to provide a perfect balance between firmness and softness.
The handle of each shaving brush at Truefitt & Hill is crafted with equal attention to detail. We select materials that are not only elegant and durable but also ergonomically designed for comfort and control during the shaving process. Whether it's a classic faux ivory or a contemporary design, each handle is shaped to provide a balanced and satisfying grip.
Elegance Meets Functionality in Every Stroke
Among our remarkable collection of shaving brushes, distinct styles cater to individual preferences and needs. The Wellington Silvertip Shaving Brush - Fan Knot, with its bristles artfully spread out, offers a softer touch, ideal for gentlemen with sensitive skin or finer stubble. This design ensures a gentle application, making every shave a soothing experience.
On the other hand, the Wellington Silvertip Shaving Brush – Bulb Knot is ingeniously crafted with hairs directed towards the centre. This unique structure is particularly effective for men with coarse, strong facial hair, providing a robust and invigorating lather that prepares the beard for a close shave.
