A shave brush for $169! Really? Yep, sort of stumbled my way into it. Started out with those $5 brushes from Sally's and the men's shelf at those hair extension places. They worked until they didn't. Shedding and knots separating from the base. Four out of five of them. My sister bought me a 60+ year old Rubberset. It worked well, and lathered nicely. I learned something. I bought two boar Semogues. Worked well, lathered nicely, looked great. I started asking myself, "What's the deal with badger?" Long story short: that's how I stumbled my way into a high-end brush. I like it. I had a question about brush cleaning and Maggard answered quickly. I took advice from those shave enthusiasts' Web sites to order a larger diameter than you're used to. Compensation for a shorter loft I think was the reason, but I'm not sure. I have brushes around 22mm, plus or minus, and I ordered the 26mm Thater. Maggard shipping and service was great.

On April 10, 2017 I purchased this Thater 4125/2 26mm octagonal black handle brush from Maggard Razors. I waited to make a review here to see how it worked, but more importantly, how the quality would hold up. When I decided to get back into wet shaving some years ago, I did mega research and began with a Simpson. I still have that brush somewhere, but I don't use it anymore. The quality of the Simpson was not there. In about 6 months I began losing hairs, and when I ordered the Thater because the Simpson was losing 10-12 hairs with every shave. I researched again spending hundreds of hours and decided on the Thater 2-band. I have used it 3-4 times a week for over two years and have lost 3 hairs. They were short, showed up in the first month, and no doubt were leftovers which were never part of the knot to begin with. I began using Haslinger Schafmilch Shaving Soap, but always wanted to use Mitchell's Wool Fat. (I wanted to be part of the cult!) I didn't purchase MWF at first because we have seriously hard water. After learning how to take care of the MWF so It didn't dry out over time, I began using distilled water for shaving. I never warm it up, just use it at room temperature. I don't soak the puck but I do put water in it for several hours the day before shaving, then pour it off so it's not there when I lather. With my face clean, whiskers soft, I load the MWF with the Thater having soaked it, and then squeezing it dry. I spend over a minute loading, and then enjoy the most luxurious shaves I have ever imagined. The 2-band is sufficient to cut into the Fat and give me enough lather for 3 passes and for clean-up where I may have missed something. I use a Rockwell 6S stainless with the #4 setting. (I purchased it from Maggard when my Jagger DE89BA11 Barley finish, the zinc head threads no longer held the head to the handle after 2 years! No more zinc shaver heads for me.) I can't thank Brad and the crew at Maggard enough for their offerings and prices at the website; for their counsel, and wonderful customer service. The quality of this Thater ruins everything else for me. If you like hard soaps and badger, get a Thater 2-band as soon as you can. It will work with the hardest soap of all. Successful lathering consists of enough soap, enough water, and enough time. I shampoo and condition my Thater every two weeks or less keeping it very clean. I expect I will be able to use it for the rest of my life - I'm 76 so it should last. I don't have the money to experiment with a bunch of razors and brushes, so I stick with what works and this combo works perfectly. Everybody wants to kiss my smooth cheeks.
