    Really Nice and Easy to Break-In

    Posted by r0b0 on Dec 4th 2020

    I was on a quest to set badger, horse and boar in my own vintage Rubberset 400 style interchangeable brush handle. I bought all three knots from Shaveforge.

    I had a 26mm ferrel that I planned to mount this 28MM knot it. I very carefully shaved and ground the glue base on the knot ever so slightly to get a tight fit in the 26mm ferrel. It turned out great. The density in the 28mm is as impressive as the loft hight and (as expected) strong boar backbone. No shedding on this knot outside the mounting and first use expected few strands.

    I soaked this in water and shave soap for 48 hour to let the steric acid in the soap soften, loosen and remove any minor natural oder. Shaved twice with it and then repeated the break-in process. The third shave was awesome and it felt like an old friend. No beating the price and try finding a 28mm anywhere else. Great value and quality. #goshaveforge

    Especially with boar bristle knots, always rinse them thoroughly, and shake them well after shaving. - That helps to keep them free from mould.

    I love this brush as much as I do my horse hair alternate. There’s nothing that can beat the glow which comes from those boar bristles: invigorating, but not harsh...just a great shave, from start to finish!

    Super big boar hair knot

    Posted by Eli on Dec 7th 2019

    When my wife couldn't get enough scritch out of my brushes, I knew I had only one option: Get that special gal a boar brush as quickly as I could!
    I did not fail in my mission, folks. The knot from Shave Forge shipped fast, with amazing communication. It went straight to a friend of mine who turns ordinary tree-flesh into the most beautiful shaving accoutrements you ever laid eyes on. When his eyes laid on this sucker he sent me a text "how many pigs are in this thing?" It's a big, beautiful knot full of the scritchy goodness you expect from boar hair. After that initial shave this puppy bloomed like a prize rose bush.

    I expected some of the usual boar "funk", of course, bit was really amazed at the lack of stank. Do t get me wrong, you smell it. It's boar. But not nearly as much as some other boar hair knots that have tickled my nose hairs.

    This knot is too quality and I would highly recommend it if you like to get scritchy. Set it deep in a handle and you've got some serious exfoliating action in you hand.

    Don't hesitate. Don't wonder if you should. OF COURSE YOU SHOULD!

    Buy one and you too can be scritching it up like a pro!
