HI-Brush (Badger effect), BLACK HI-Brush (Black badger effect) and S-Brush (Hog bristle effect) synthetic fibers are made of PBT, a thermoplastic semi-crystalline polyester. The filaments are corrugated as to improve the performance of the brush in terms of holding and releasing the lather during the shave. They are chemically tapered to give a soft touch on the skin. Synthetic fibers are really much more performing than hog bristle and badger hair. They better withstand their daily duty and are much more hygienic and easier to clean.
Last but not least, Omega synthetic fibers respect the animals!
Omega shaving brushes are hand-crafted in Italy, dimensions may slightly differ from the ones indicated.
