  • Product Description

    The same finest badger fibers as found in our other brushes, now with fan knots rather than the more common bulb knots. Backbone, splay, and super-soft gel tips all on a professional barber style handle make this brush the bargain of the year. Brushes of this quality would normally sell for upwards of $200.

    Available in a butterscotch handle with black logo, or black handle with white logo.

    1. This is the best brush I have ever used.

      I can't add anything that hasn't already been said. This is a great brush at a great price. Stirling keeps on knocking it out of the park. on 6th Jan 2017

    2. Outstanding brush

      One of the things on my Christmas. Very happy when I opened it. Great brush the fan Knot works really well. Very soft with nice backbone. I really like the way this brush releases lather. It's top of my rotation now. Get it you won't regret it. I have other more expensive badger brushes, I like this one the best. Great for face lathering. on 29th Dec 2016

    3. Best Value in badger brushes, period.

      I own or have owned several top badger brushes (M&F, Paladin, VL Epsilon, Rooney, Shavemac, Declaration) and this brush holds its own with brushes 3 or 4 times the price. The new handle is more solid than those on the previous Stirling brushes. The knot is medium dense, has very soft tips, and releases lather well. When I got the first Stirling 24mm bulb, I did it on a whim and was impressed to find a brush that would be considered good regardless of the price. The fan is even better. on 28th Dec 2016

    4. This brush exceeded my expectations!

      Setting aside the beauty of the brush since that can be plainly seen in the photos, I must say that this brush has blown away all of the other brushes in my collection. The size of the handle makes it very easy to control and maneuver around the face and the knot holds enough soap for 3 full shaves, let alone 3 passes and a clean up. This brush feels like your using a $100 or $200 brush. on 27th Dec 2016

    5. Couldn't be happier

      Sometimes you buy a product that so exceeds your expectations you just want to tell everyone. I thought this brush was going to be a good one for the price but this brush compares to a very expensive one I was lucky to try during a pass around. 2 days of prep and 4 shaves into the relationship and I'm in love. I have lathered the same soaps with this brush and a very nice 24mm synthetic brush. There was no comparison. This brush just flat out produced more and better suds. I was also expecting a normal amount of shedding that you get with any animal knots but there has been also none. The folks at Stirling have outdone themselves with this offering. on 22nd Dec 2016

    6. Love this brush!

      Awesome brush for the price! Shed a few hairs with the first few uses and took about a half a dozen shaves to really get the smell out of the brush, but it is the best performing brush I have purchased to date. I mostly face lather so this has just the right amount of backbone and "scritch"to develop a great lather with my Stirling soaps. I have spent a lot more for brushes that weren't half this good. Highly recommended. on 19th Dec 2016

    7. Stirling does it again!

      Five Stars!!!!!! If I could give it more I would!

      I don't know how Rod and Mandy do it, but these brushes are literally about as good as you can get. Good backbone, soft tips, the handle is substantial without being clunky, and feels far more expensive than it is. This is a better brush than others you will spend 2-3x as much for...I honestly am amazed by this! The barbers handle fan is perfect for face lathering, though it is almost as good if taken to a bowl to develop your lather. If you're in the market for a badger brush, you don't have to break the bank to get quality in your shave dens!

    8. Can't be beat

      This brush is fantastic! I fell in love with the 24mm bulb knot, and when this fan version came out, I jumped on it. Outstanding brush! Handle is great and very nostalgic feeling. The knot is soft and supple with plenty of backbone to prevent flopping, and the fan style just splays beautifully. Undoubtedly my favorite brush, currently in rotation. At this price you can;t go wrong! on 15th Dec 2016

    9. Rod is offering fantastic shave brushes

      I should be reviewing the bulb knot as that is the one I have but I bought a fan knot to give to a friend and this is the link I was sent to review. If it is anything like the bulb knot (I'm told by others it is), you aren't going to find anything better in this price range...I've gone through 3 Chubby 3's and tired of having to cough up $200 to replace them (Best Badger)

      I don't miss using the Chubby 3 at all after using this brush. Just buy one! Nuff said!

    10. Great Brush. Great Price.

      Wonderful brush. Lathers naturally and plentifully. I do not know another source that offers such a quality brush at such a reasonable price. Thank you, Stirling. on 14th Dec 2016


      This is a very full hair brush with excellent back bone. It's taking some time to break it in but I find that with all super hair badger brushes. Can't find a better brush for the money. on 13th Dec 2016

    12. Nice Fan

      1st fan brush I used, works really well, I think I prefer the bulb style knot better, but the badger brush is a great value. on 13th Dec 2016

    13. All I can say is WOW!

      I bought 3 of these for gifts and got one for myself...yeah that's right I gifted myself and glad I did! I thought the brush would be a little rough from first impression and boy was I wrong. This brush is nothing but smooth once you have it lathered. I own 5 brushes from $15.00 - $135.00, and this brush here just snubbed all of my badger brushes right out. I love this this brush so much I am tempted to order another one just to store in case it ever leaves the production line and is no longer available. This morning was the first time I used it and I here I am giving a review. This brush lathers in spades and provides an awesome thick lather with Stirling soap. My Simpson best badger has nothing on this brush...NOTHING! First brush or not your first brush, I highly doubt you will be disappointed. on 9th Dec 2016

    14. Beautiful Buddascotch!

      I've never had the pleasure of owning a fan shaped knot so when I received an email notification that Stirling had a 24 mm Badger fan shaped knot, in Butterscotch and for the super price, I ordered it immediately. I can say I'm very pleased with the performance. There was hardly any funky smell either. I did lose a good dozen hairs with my initial washing and my first use, but the knot seems very stable now. I have used it 3x so far and I really like it, not to mention that fanatastic butterscotch color just pops! Thanks Stirling! on 6th Dec 2016

    15. Best Bang for Your Buck

      Finest 2 Band Badger... check!
      Fan shaped knot... check!
      Soft tips... check!
      Solid handle... check!
      Under $40..... WHAT?

      I only used this once and it is already one of my favorite brushes. The handle is sturdy and not cheap feeling. The knot by itself is worth the asking price and then some. Soft tips, good backbone, great splay. The butterscotch handle is just an added awesome bonus by Rod and team.
