One of the few things that never hit me in terms of wet shaving addictions is B.A.D. which is short for Brush Aquistion Disorder. My mom decided to get me a new Van Der Hagen pure badger shaving brush at Walmart tonight. This is the 2nd one I've had of these and from what I can tell, it's better constructed than the first one I had 2 years that came in the kit available in Walmart which fell apart on me 2 weeks after I got it. This is NOT my favorite knot but it will become better as I use it. I prefer to have a boar knot myself. The size of this brush is perfect for me. So I will be keeping the box it came in just in case something goes wrong with it and I can have a custom one made later on:
My Omega 10049 Boar has just about had it and it's a "soap hog" meaning it will take more soap when you load it up for a shave. But I will keep it around just in case something goes wrong.
