Shaving Brush Backbone

shaving brush backbone

 

YAQI & OUMO create Synthetic brushes with excellent backbone.
It's a foundation of a great shave.

The backbone of a brush describes the brushes overall ability to withstand pressure. A shaving brush with “Good Backbone” will resist more before it collapses and splays out. Good Backbone is handy for a number of reasons:

  • Helps to exfoliate your skin and stand your bristles up ready for a close shave.
  • Helps when whipping up your lather in your bowl (more resistance = more lather). Even more important if you are face latherer.
  • Gives longevity to the brush.
