Rated 4 out of 5 by Aviator87 Pretty good so far
I just got this product today in which the brush is pretty good. Just got to say that the brush tends to smell like if someone passed gas after getting the brush wet! The other problem is that I found some badger hair on my straight razor and cheek while shaving. This product tends to shed but so far it gets the job done. Make sure you wet the brush before using it or else it will feel like a porcupine hairs going across your face!

I got this brush about 2 years ago as a gift from my girlfriend, it does what you'd expect from a badger brush, makes a nice lather and holds a fair amount of water.
For those complaining about smell, badger hair is hair that actually comes from a wild animal, that's why it smells. This can be fixed by washing it with shampoo and rinsing it out, repeating as necessary. It doesn't do any damage to the brush.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LRC3 Great but..............
Ok the skinny on this brush is, it does the job but has a stinky smell to it. Now it's not unbearable or will run the wife away but there is a Oder.
At the same time I couldn't justify spending an additional $100+ on an upgraded brush after purchasing a razor, blades, shave kit, and brush stand.
I'm not sure how much of better of a shave I would have gotten with a better brush bc WOW did I get a great shave. I love TAOS

Rated 2 out of 5 by shrop2057 It's ok
I've used this for about a month or so. My first brush. I was very pleased with the lather it gave and how it really made the shaving cream go a long way (could relather 2-3 times with just a little).
But then I started doing some research on the different type of hair and brushes. I got a Rooney Best shaving brush for Christmas and it's just hands down better. It's just a little bit more than this one, but I totally think it's worth the money.
I've never tried the AoS Best hair brushes before. They could be equally good.
But definitely spend the extra money for the Best Badger of Pure.
