Dual Band Premium Silvertip Badger 24mm
Handcrafted production of the brush heads in the Thäter Brush Manufacture
We have been manufacturing our brush heads in the artisanal tradition of brush making
In the production of the brush heads, we do not use any machine automation.

This makes each brush unique.
Different shapes such as flat, fan, fan-rounded and bulb are only possible with hand-made
brush heads and only with hand-made brush heads are the visible hair lengths individually
adapted to the handle height and also to customer requirements, not to speak of the
various knot diameters that we offer, from 19 – 36 mm.
A typical distinguishing feature of machine-made shaving brush heads is on the one hand
the visible ring / ferrule, with the help of which the tuft of hair is kept in shape in the
shaping sleeve and, on the other hand, the same visible hair length that is predetermined.
Every single shaving brush is subjected to a thorough final inspection before it is carefully
packaged and shipped.
Badger hair qualities used
For our purely handcrafted shaving brushes, mainly badger hair qualities in pure
“plucking” design are used, in particular these are Badger Silvertip Premium Select in 3
and 2-band versions in lengths from 65 to 90 mm.
Only with these lengths are long white tips and a very dark, almost black natural drawing
The term “plucking” represents the highest possible quality level for the different badger
For this only hair with a distinctive drawing (banding) is selected and is used here.
Of particular note here is the high flexibility of the hair and its particularly soft tips.
Much cheaper variants are
Best Badger 1st” = predominantly gray badger hair with banding and
“Pure Badger” = gray badger hair without banding
Precious resin (polyethylene)
Resin is a high-quality plastic, the longevity of which guarantees high value retention. The
manufacture of the high-grade resin handles takes place in coordinated, multi-part work
steps. The basic shapes are first worked out individually from solid round bars. The blanks
are then deburred and pre-polished in so-called “scrubbing drums” using special polishing
granules. Finally, each individual handle is carefully polished by hand, giving it its haptic
quality and special shine.
