The SI26-FI26 is a Silvertip Badger shaving brush with a Faux Ivory handle.
A brush of surprising quality given the cost. Frank Shaving brushes are manufactured in China – the source of where the world’s Badger hair supply comes from. Cutting out the middle man companies means the savings gets passed on to the consumer. The handles are lathe turned from solid acrylic – just like brushes costing 2-3 times the price. The badger hair is of surprising quality – although there may be higher quality knots out there, we feel like these brushes represent a fantastic value.
Frank Shaving brushes come in several badger hair grades. From lowest to highest grade they are as follows:

There is only one catch. If you get a brush that has a manufacturer defect (a knot that sheds, a knot that falls out of handle, etc etc), we probably won’t be able to replace the brush like we are sometimes able to with our other manufacturer’s products. We can try, but we can’t guarantee it. We have to make sure that we don’t lose money on these brushes – so, purchase them knowing that you are taking a small (VERY small) chance that you could get a shedding knot. I have heard extremely good things about Frank Shaving brushes, however – and I do not think that this is going to be a huge problem.
All in all, these brushes are truly beautiful. Right out of the box, I suggest rubbing the brush across your palm several times, you will see a few loose hairs pop out. Normally, manufacturers do this as part of Quality control before they are packaged – but I’ve noticed a few extra hairs in these brushes that are loose, so maybe they are skipping this step. Remove these before your first shave.
