    I am in the UK and thinking of buying a brush for my son.
    I will probably buy one from Connought.
    Does anyone have a recommendation for a cheap but good badger hair brush from this supplier?
    I use an Edwin Jagger but they seem to only do synthetic these days as far as I can make out.
    Where did all these synthetics come from and are they better than the badger?

    I would say better just different. Is your son new to wet shaving?

    If he's new to wet shaving, I would suggest a nice synthetic (extremely easy to use). Another variable to think of is the type of soap going to be used.

    I am not inclined to revisit synthetic brushes. The few I tried early on in my wet shaving adventure performed okay, but not great. IIRC.

    Since I got my Badger in the Extreme Flat-Top, Two Band Shavemac knot with a Rudy Vey handle in 2016, I have used nothing else unless I was on vacation with Chubbz I that I was gifted by @PanChango many years ago.
