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.
If you don't have this brush, stop what you're doing and place an order! You will not be disappointed. Your other brushes will be begging for your attention! Ryan on 23rd Feb 2017
This is a pretty amazing quality brush. While it's a little "harsher" than the FINE synthetic I had prior, it is also stiffer, which makes better lather and an almost massage-like quality for the application of lather.
If you're using soap, it's a godsend. With my TOBS cream, however, it was a very thirsty brush, requiring much more soap to build a lather. That may be due to size difference (22mm versus 24mm), but I felt the material "sucks up" more to make a lather. I also had to re-load the brush during shaving versus the FINE.
There was virtually no smell out of the box. I hear horror stories of "wet dog smell", but after a 2-hr soak in hand soap, and lathering up the brush with Sterling soap, then leaving to rest overnight... it's incredibly soft and the bristles have "bloomed" perfectly with ZERO smell.
Despite my commentary on the differences between the synthetic, I don't think I'll be going back to it. The badger is now my number one brush, and I will use it for years to come. Lan on 15th Feb 2017
This is a great brush. Also, it is a inexpensive way to try a fan shaped brush without breaking the bank. I really enjoy using this brush for face lathering. bk on 29th Jan 2017
I bought this brush to compliment the 26mm finest badger brush also from Stirling. I REALLY like that brush a lot. I wanted to try the fan brush design on this brush. I honestly don't see or feel much difference between this brush and the 26mm. I don't notice any different shape to the knot in this brush. Don't get me wrong, I love the size, feel and especially the lathering of this brush. Just not different enough to justify having both brushes (other than more is better, of course!). As a matter of personal preference, I like the handle on the 26mm better too. This one just feels a tad awkward in my hand. All of these things are small quibbles with this brush. This is a really good brush-especially for the price! Reed on 27th Jan 2017
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. Unknown on 6th Jan 2017
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. Unknown on 29th Dec 2016
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. Alex on 28th Dec 2016
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. Cisco Garcia on 27th Dec 2016
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. patrick on 22nd Dec 2016
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. Duane on 19th Dec 2016
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! Josh on 16th Dec 2016
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! Chris on 15th Dec 2016
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! shakin_jake on 15th Dec 2016
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. Anthony 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. Unknown on 13th Dec 2016
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. Unknown on 13th Dec 2016
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. Unknown on 9th Dec 2016
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! James on 6th Dec 2016
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. Tom on 6th Dec 2016
