Whether Badger or Hog Bristle, a good quality brush should NEVER be trimmed into shape by the manufacturer. Cheap brushes are almost always trimmed and using one will feel like using a wire brush on your skin - not good!
All brushes sold here are naturally shaped and the ends of the hair are left soft and uncut, giving a soft and luxurious feel.
Dry after use - using a brush stand will allow the bristles to hang downwards and dry naturally. Always try to allow a brush to dry out before the next use (this is why many shavers have two brushes and possibly a travel-brush, so they can alternate, allowing the brush to dry fully before the next use.
A good shaving brush will last the user many years, if cared for properly!
