Has anyone tried this one yet? I went ahead and ordered one and it arrived today. I chose this over the DR Harris one because I preferred its simplicity to the DR Harris with all the writing on it. However, having received it, it looks pretty rough compared to the refinement of the DR Harris. And, it does have an odor about it. I am letting it sit with toothpaste worked into its bristles. I'll report on how it works.

Looks like an interesting brush. Are the bristles boar? If they are, then they definitely will have an odour to them for some time. Good luck with it.

I hadn't given it much thought, but I bet they are. All I know is that they are "natural". I think some natural toothbrushes come with badger bristles, which would probably be a lot softer (and less smelly).

I haven't tried this one, but I do use the Acca Kappa ones, which are also boar bristle (with a cellulose handle) - it's also fully biodegradable. Having used the Acca Kappa, I can state that I'll never use any other manual brush. It has worked wonders for my teeth, and it feels great to use it all the time.

On a whim I bought one like that and was disappointed. Used it a few times and tossed it. I'm always up for something new but it doesn't always work out.

I'd be up to try a "natural" brush, but I need soft tips. Not looking for scritch for my teeth.

This toothbrush has medium bristles, but they are still to hard and make my gums bleed. The bristles start too far back on the head, which makes it difficult to brush the far back of the wisdom teeth. I might try an Acca Kappa badger bristle toothbrush next instead of another boar bristle one. Any other suggestions for a natural bristle toothbrush?

I looked at swissco's site and no mention of the badger, but Smallflower (Merz Apothecary) carries them (out of stock). I'll have to order the soft boar and the extra soft badger and tive them a try.

I can check the Lincoln Square store for you. Need to head in and pick up a tick of Valobra anyhow.
