Stirling Soap is pleased to announce that we've now added our first round of Best Badger and Boar brushes to the website. We've also added three different styles of DE razors. All of which are of much higher quality than you will normally find for the prices at which we are offering them. The Boars sell for $7.50 each, the Best Badgers are available for $21-22 bucks, and the razors are between $6 and $15. You won't find better hardware at these prices. Below are some photos of the items (further description on the website), and you can contact me with any questions about anything on my site.

Any questions, please just let me know. I can probably be persuaded to throw in one or two of our huge shave samples free of charge with any razor or brush order so those who've never tried Stirling can give it a whirl while trying out these great razors and brushes.

Thanks,

Rod

I realize these things are subjective, but how would you compare the softness and backbone of your brushes to, say, Simpsons Best?

ETA: And, nice additions!

Simpson has some of the most stringent standards for classifying their badger hair, so while these are very soft, a Simpson Best badger will likely feel softer to you. Also, the knot diameter on these is 21mm so they will not be as stiff as a Simpson. That being said, you won't be paying $80-160 a brush for these like a Simpson either. For just over 20 bucks, they are pretty hard to beat. Honestly, if they were $40 bucks each they'd be hard to beat.

I agree, they're a great looking set of brushes for $20. I was just using Simpson as a widely known point of reference, since "best badger" is so incredibly variable. Heck, even Vulfix, their parent company, calls things "super" that others would call best, etc.

Thanks for the response. Sounds like a great resource for a low cost brush.

It's curing right now. I did 3 batches this time. Hopefully it will be ready to go sometime in March.

Any chance you could offer a fat handle, open comb razor?

Rod, I suspect that would be worth your while. The Cadet-type open comb is rightfully popular for those of use that want more efficiency than the closed comb offered above (which is a solid head, don't get me wrong) with the benefit of leaving more lather on the skin prior to blade passage. The beneficiaries of Stirling lather don't just give it away! Wink

Do me a favor and shoot me a picture of exactly what you are looking for and i'll talk to my suppliers and see what we can come up with.
