    The ARTTURI™ Premium Silvertip Badger Knot

    Silvertip Badger

    Silvertip Badger

    Found only around the neck area of the badger, Silvertip is the rarest and highest grade of badger hair. There is often a bit of confusion regarding the many authentic grades of badger hair. Some companies come up with their own name, or disguise lower grade badger hair, with prefixes such as; High, Purest, or Mixed or Super Pure. Silvertip hair is almost always sorted and graded by hand. This is based on very specific characteristics of softness and coloring. Unlike other grades, Silvertip has the most distinctive black and white banding, along with the softest most luxurious natural tip.

    At ARTTURI™, our tips are never color treated, but left in their distinctive natural white to off-white color.  All badger knots in general, will create the best quality lathering characteristic, apart from horse, boar and other animals. Badger has the capability to produce a rich and dense lather, primarily due to the water absorbent capability, and balance of air, water and soap infusion between the hairs. The Silvertip knot has a very distinctive feel against your skin, some describe as velvety, with the best control, allowing lather to carry evenly throughout the entire application, quickly. There may be other "grades", self designating as better quality, such as “High Manchurian” or Super Silvertip etc…don’t get confused. Silvertip is the highest grade on the animal itself, and the industry recognized king of shave knots. 

    The value for the dramatic increase in price for Silvertip, is often debatable. Silvertip is remarkably more 'velvety' over the face, vice  Pure Badger, which is firmer and a bit more coarse. Best Badger tends to shed water more than Silvertip, which allows a faster dry time, for our travel brush. That characteristic is a factor when designing travel brush.  The exfoliating properties actually derive from the different animals, rather than different grades. You will see a slight difference between a Pure and Silvertip knot. Lower qualities have less flexibility that leads to hair breakage and fall off.

    ARTTURI™ will always guarantee the authenticity and quality of our products, especially the shave knot. Our brushes are recognized as the finest shave knot available in the world.  

    Use and Care

    Our knots are handmade, with more hair density, in comparison to our high end competitors. The additional hair creates greater brush fullness, and lather retention. We recommend rinsing and drying properly so the hairs don't become susceptible to additional damage and drop. ARTTURI™ recommends caring for the Silvertip knot just like you would all your fine shaving supplies.  Allow the brush to air dry, hair down, allowing water to drip off, thus realign naturally, and fluff back up. This hang and dry technique prevents the brush from typical bathroom damage such as sitting in a pool of water which creates rot.  A good rule of thumb: About one bristle will be lost each shave. So, the larger the base, the longer it lasts. ARTTURI™knots are a meaty 27mm, with a 67mm loft, the ideal size for premium performance.  ARTTURI™ will warranty your brush for the life of the knot; usually 12-20 years, although some have lasted 40 or more.

    ARTTURI™ is a popular choice for men who demand the finest quality in the world.
