Shaving Brush Backbone
YAQI & OUMO create Synthetic brushes with excellent backbone.
It's a foundation of a great shave.
The backbone of a brush describes the brushes overall ability to withstand pressure. A shaving brush with “Good Backbone” will resist more before it collapses and splays out. Good Backbone is handy for a number of reasons:
- Helps to exfoliate your skin and stand your bristles up ready for a close shave.
- Helps when whipping up your lather in your bowl (more resistance = more lather). Even more important if you are face latherer.
- Gives longevity to the brush.
