The Colonel Conk 1016 Shaving Brush features a classic style that hasn’t changed much over the years. The handle is cream colored and fits in your hand perfectly. The bristles on the shave brush are best badger which are finer and more pliable hairs from the badger’s coat. After use rinse thoroughly. Hang brush in open air to dry. Dry with bristles facing down. Best results with Col. Conk shave cream or shave soap.
