    Bruce, I have never claimed that the major brands of shaving brushes mostly come from China. It is well known that most badger hair comes from China. Some manufacturers import ready made knots and make handles in their own country. There is speculation that some handles are also made in China which bear “Made in England” labels. My personal concern is that if it is claimed that a brush is made in a particular country, the buyer should expect this to be true!
