I have been working my way through a a bunch of samples I purchased from Stirling Soap here in Texas. Really interesting and complex scents. All in all a great company to do business with. Anybody out there using a horsehair brush? I saw some on Amazon.

Welcome! I personally have tried, but do not care for horse hair brushes, but then again, I don't really like boar and half the badgers I have tried either. There has to be a sweet spot for me, and that might not be the same for you.
Several folks here like and use horse brushes.

ETA, I do like Stirling soaps!

Welcome to The Shave Nook and enjoy your stay. Smile

I have the very inexpensive Vie-Long 12601 horsehair brush and quite like it. However, unlike Mike, I also have boars, badgers, and blends (badger/boar, horsehair/boar) that I also enjoy using so perhaps I'm not all that picky. If the brush is very inexpensive (mine was only about $12.00 when I purchased it a few years ago) then just take a chance and try one. We have a very good article about horsehair brushes in the Feature section: http://shavenook.com/thread-the-horse-ha...h-movement. Good luck with your decision.

Welcome ! As Freddy suggested Vie-long makes best horse hair brushes in the business. You can choose from different available options.

Welcome aboard, and enjoy the ride.

I rather like my horsehair brushes, both pure horse and mixed horse-badger... but they are not everyone's cup of tea. If you want a soft, fluffy cloud you should stay clear. If you don't mind - or like - a bit of scritch, go for it.
