Handcrafted in Germany, the Vivo shaving brush is a modern take on a classic design. The handle is made of plum wood, with chrome-plated metal highlights. The plum wood, with its intriguing colour and vivid grain, is turned and sealed to protect the brush against water. The chrome-plated base and rim is corrosion-resistant, very long lasting and has a luxurious lustre. The brush head is made of pure badger. Among the natural hair types, pure badger is the basic quality. The hairs are somewhat thicker, but still softer and more flexible than bristles. Recommended for those who would like a badger brush with a slightly stronger massaging effect.
