In my search for a new “go to” razor blade I have previously tried Crystal and Astra blades. This time I look at Dorco. Dorco is a South Korean company that has recently made a play in the razor and blade game by supplying products both under their own name and as an “original equipment manufacturer” (OEM) for companies like Dollar Shave Club.

Traditional Shaving Company’s 100 series badger brush is a solid, middle-of-the-road brush that is another “no drama” product for me: a solid performer that uses good quality parts. I admit that I can be kind of rough on brushes but this brush has been holding up quite nicely. It’s dropped maybe one or two hairs, pleasantly stiff without being too “scritchy,” and I haven’t had to deal with a funky smell.
