It is the same size. The only difference between the two are the product sizes that are also included, (creams, oil, etc.).

This is a mid-size brush. Not the small or full size. I found this to be perfect as a gift.

I believe this is a smaller brush and from what I understand, isn't as well-made. The one in the larger kit is made from badger hair. If the person uses the brush a lot, buy a brush holder that holds the brush upside down so that it dries properly.

Its the standard, the same size in the Full Size pack. I think this is better because he can try it out and there might be a product there that he may not be too thrilled about.

The Company describes the make of this brush as, "the finest badger hair available", therefore the bristles are natural element. The brush is used to apply shaving scream that is included. he Art of Shaving shaving brushes generate a rich and warm lather, softens & lifts the beard, help release trapped hairs, bring sufficient water to the skin and gently exfoliate. They are typically used in luxury brands.

The brush is made of badger hair (which according to my husband is the best type of hair for a shaving brush). You use the brush to apply the shaving cream. He says that the brush helps lift the hairs and allows for a much closer shave.

and the reason there is a shave brush and shave cream is because most nicer shaving creams require a brush. they dont technically require a brush, but they are easiest to create a nice lather. this shaving cream is not like the kind you buy from walmart. it doesnt come out all foamy or gunky.

you actually put an almond size amount into a shaving bowl. wet your brush, and then whirl around the brush in the shaving cream to create a nice lather. that is when it actually looks like the common shaving cream we see today.

For the most part, nearly all shave brushes are composed of badger hair. there are three or four different qualities of badger hair used.

there is pure badger, best badger, super badger, and silvertip badger. ranging from bottom to top respectively.
This is more than likely pure badger simply because of the price. silvertip and the higher end models cost more than 150$ a piece.

they are used because they offer a high moisture carrying capacity allowing for a nicer lather and even dispersal of shaving cream. they also raise the hairs as stated.

The bristles on the brush are made from pure badger hair. Just a heads up--the bristles stink!! The reason for the brush is it softens and lifts the beard resulting in an extremely close shave. That was the first comment my boyfriend made after using this kit. It will also gently exfoliate the skin, reducing the chances of getting an ingrown hair.
