Chris Christensen Natural Boar Bristle Brush £19.95
Chris Christensen Natural Boar Bristle Brush
Using the finest quality 'tufted' natural Boar Bristle to create a fantastic shine while distributing natural oils into the coat, this brush will stimulate hair & skin follicles and remove dander. The 8.75" brush body is made from a lightweight beechwood.
In its natural state, boar hair is approximately 6 inches in length and tapers from its thickest point at the bulb (root) to thinnest point at the tip. The quality of the natural bristle used in any brush is determined by two factors; the quality of the actual bristle itself and which "cut" of the bristle is used. "Cuts" are categorized as "First Cut" (the root end), "Second Cut", "Third Cut", etc. Depending on the bristle length of the brush being manufactured, the manufacturer may be able to yield three or four cuts from the bristle (the tip or "flag" end of the bristle is generally discarded).
The First Cut is generally regarded as the most desirable. Because the root end of the bristle has a rounded tip, it is very gentle to the skin and because the root end is also the thickest portion of the bristle, it is the most effective for proper brushing. Remember that in order to be effective, the bristles must be long enough and stiff enough not only to brush the hair but also to contact and gently massage the skin. Yet they must be gentle enough that the scalp is not injured or irritated.
The "First Cut", while being the most desirable, is also the most expensive. Imagine that? Chris Christensen Systems specializes in the highest premium products only and reserves the use of the "First Cut" bristles only. These 3 brushes are of the highest quality "tufted" natural Boar Bristle "First Cut".

This is a beautifully crafted product that sits easily in the hand. It smooths and shapes the guard hairs on the big coats of my BSDs - and for a lot less money than the "human" boar bristle brush commonly used in showing circles. A pleasing piece of kit which complements my wooden and steel pin brushes - and which I would expect to stand up to years of use.
