Black Shave Brush & Two Shave Soaps07.07.2015 ByDWH I have always loved the eBarbershop shea butter shave soaps since the first time I used them many years ago. The brush is black, but is not the same as in the picture nor what I have received from eBarbershop in the past. This time, it was a Parker black handle, black badger brush which is a little softer than eBarbershop's past brush with a little different shape to the handle. Although I prefer the prior brush, this brush works well and is definitely growing on me as I use it. It holds ample water and whips up a good lather from the soap in about average time.
