Yohann had recently expressed an interest in the D.R. Harris toothbrushes. I was about ready to add them to my last order when I discovered they actually offer 9 different models. I don't want to carry them all and want to figure out what the most popular models would be.

You can vote for as many models as you wish. The handles on all of the toothbrushes are made of bone. The short head models come with either a straight or a curved handle.

Thank you Ben! You are right, I should have included pics. I will likely carry several models but definitely not all 9. I appreciate the input. Biggrin

I will buy some from you. I used these brushes a few years back but decided it was a hassel ordering them direct from D.R. Harris.

I have to be honest, Phil, I use an electric toothbrush so I didn't vote. Confused

Does your electric toothbrush have a real bone handle? Biggrin

After using the Acca Kappa toothbrushes that WCS sells, I've become a fan of long heads. I don't need my handles curved, though.

Looking forward to seeing these on Bullgoose.

Of course, you've got to keep in mind that people only change their toothbrushes a few times each year, so there may not be much turnover......especially if the prices are much higher than commercial products.

Very true...I definitely will not be buying them by the gross. Biggrin

For those of you that have never used a boar bristles toothbrush before, I find the medium boar to be a lot stiffer than the medium brush you would buy at your local drug store.

I have heard that boar toothbrushes can remove enamel from teeth, although perhaps that only for the stiff, hard bristles. Does anyone know more about this / have any experience?

Well, I've only experienced one boar brush - my current Acca Kappa. It feels stiff when dry, but it softens up a lot when it's wet, so I doubt it can remove enamel.

Of course, if you brush hard enough you can damage your enamel and gums. Light brushing is what's needed.

I received the toothbrushes yesterday. I was expecting the straight handle toothbrushes but received the curved handle toothbrushes instead. Huh

Does a traditional style toothbrush like this offer any advantages over an electric toothbrush, aside from when travelling?

No...not as far as I can tell. Just the cool factor. Cool The natural bristle heads do last longer from what I understand.

What sort of bone are we talking about here?Doubt

And...Phil, did you order medium and soft? Johnny mentioned that boar bristles were more medium than the medium of regular brushes, so, for me, I'd prefer soft...feeling cautious...do want to keep my enamel on my teeth...Sisi

Yes...I ordered both medium and soft bristles. I have no idea what kind of bone. Cow perhaps.
