Yup. Dead. My cheap Van der Hagen boar brush with the nicely soft split hairs has died. The freaking middle came out. Take a look. I’m not upset at all. I got it, puck of soap and bowl for 8 dollars plus tax 2 years ago. When the middle came out I decided to yank out the entire knot. I have no idea what they set the hairs in but it doesn’t look like rubber or plastic. More like a plaster feel in the middle. I can see whatever it is eroding away on the edges. Weird. Good news is I have another one to break in. Same thing will probably happen.
So the shave of the Day
- Hot shower/ Old Spice Pure Sport body wash
- Soap – Kiss My Face Cool Mint
- Brush – VDH boar
- Razor – Gem 1912
- Blade – Treet Super (7)
- Cold water rinse
- Skin Bracer aftershave
Totally forgot to clean and dry the blade so it has rusted and been tossed. Shave was so-so as my attention was turned to my dying brush more than what I was doing on my face.
