    I purchased a Vie Long horse hair shaving brush from Gifts and Care and it has a significant gap in the hair right in the middle of the bristles. I sent Gifts and Care an email about this and, after nearly a week, have yet to hear from them. Since they are located in Spain, if they don’t get back to me, I’m stuck with a seriously flawed shaving brush. Right now, I don’t recommend buying from them. I’ll revise this post if and when I hear back from them.

    I have an update regarding my Vie Long razororded from gits and care.com.

    A very professional guy by the name of Juan had been helping me out. He decided that rather haggle with Vie Long about a defective shaving brush and keep me waiting, he’d just send me a new one. In other words, he’s made right by the customer -me-and is hammering out the problem with the manufacturer of the Shave brush. Now that’s what ai call great customer service.

    Juan is awesome! Do business with giftsandcare.com and you won’t be disappointed.

    Thanks again, Juan!

    I received mine recently direct from BestShave and with all due respect to Bruce the one I received was clearly not horse. It was definitely worth the $2.45 I paid for it, but even this new guy knows boar when he sees it.

    It is of some concern, especially when Jewish and Muslim men need to avoid unclean animals. My advice for those with those needs is to stay away and go for a reputable name brand. For a guy looking for a starter brush and/or a travel brush that can be forgotten in a Hotel, this is fine.

    To be fair the one you show above looks a lot more like horse than the one I have, I’m not trying to impugn your character. The one I received however was definitely bristle.

    I will be posting this on both your “Turkish horse hair shaving brush” and your “Custom horse shaving brush” entry because honestly I never saw this page before I ordered one.
