YAQI Shaving Brush Backbone

shaving brush backbone

YAQI create brushes
with excellent backbone.

A foundation of a great shave. 

The backbone of a brush describes the brushes overall ability to withstand pressure. 
A shaving brush with “Good Backbone” will resist more before it collapses and splay out. 

Good Backbone is handy for a number of reasons: 

  1. Helps to exfoliate your skin and stand your bristles up ready for a close shave.
  2. Helps when whipping up your lather in your bowl (more resistance = more lather). Even more important if you are face latherer.
  3. Gives longevity to the brush.

    Experience & Expertise

    "Backbone" is a combination of all the characteristics of a brush knot, including;
    *how the knot is glued into the handle. The depth at which it is set and and the actually setting method will influence the "Backbone"
    This is an area of expertise that YAQI has developed over 11 years.
    Having the knot correctly set into the handle has a big influence on Backbone.
