The major factor in determining brush type is the density of bristles. Bristle density also helps in determining it's purpose. Based on bristle density and shape (round or concave) you have the following types of brushes:
  1. Vent brush
  2. Round brush
  3. Paddle brush 
  4. Teasing brush
  5. The Wet Brush - Does the wet brush work on dry hair and Is the wet brush good for your hair

1. Zilberhaar Basic Beard Brush Kit (Soft Version) 2nd Cut Boar Bristles - $45.00


This is a kit where you get a regular beard brush and pocket brush and a brush cleaner tool. This kit is the ideal gift for any beard grower, with a regular beard brush for morning routing and a pocket beard brush for the car, office or travel set. Add the steel cleaning brush to keep your brushes in perfect condition for a long time.

This brush is made from 100% pure boar bristles and European pear wood by master craftsmen in Germany. These unique and natural products have been designed to feel great in your hand and skin.

This is a soft boar bristle brush. Zilberhaar also makes a stiff bristle version of this same kit. The soft version is not going to have the penetration needed for thick hair. Depending on your hair type you may need the stiffer kit to get good penetration. Made from the second cut of the boar bristle, these slightly thinner bristles are especially good for first-time users or people with sensitive skin.

Packaged in a black box and black foam protected. A great experience of gift that will surely give a lasting impression.

The brush is made of Pear wood that is used to carve out the brushes. The wood is grown in Austria in the Black Forest. Each tree taken is replaced via sustainable forests. The wood handles are then carved from a single block of wood and sanded to a smooth finish, first by machine with pebbles and finished by hand to get every part right. By making the brush from a single block of wood give it strength and should be much stronger than 2 piece plastic handles. This allows you to use more tension while brushing linger hair.

Zilberhaar is based out of France but imports brushes manufactured in Germany.


2. Zeus Palm Military Style 100% Soft Boar Bristle Beard Brush Set - $40.00

Zeus Palm Military Style 100% Soft Boar Bristle Beard Brush Set


This is a 100% boar bristle palm style brush. It comes in two versions a stiff or fist cut and a soft or second cut. For thin hair you are going to want the soft or second cut and for thick hair where more penetration is needed you are going to want to get the first cut or stiff version. The Zeus Military
Style Palm Brush is available in two distinct stiffness. First cut boar bristles are a strong brush, perfect for lengthy, thick or dense beards. Second-cut boar bristles are thinner and more appropriate for smaller, medium-length beards.

Comes with a cleaning tool and a very nice black tin box. Artfully designed brush made of the best materials in Germany.

3. 100% Pure Calcutta Wild Boar Bristle Hair Brush, Butterfly Engraving - $36.50

100% Pure Calcutta Wild Boar Bristle Hair Brush, Butterfly Engraving


Desert Breeze Distributing is offering 2 versions of this brush and you should choose the version that is going to be the best for your hair type. There is a PW1 and a Calcutta version, with the Calcutta version featuring much stiffer bristles. Also the Calcutta has longer bristles for better penetration.

Calcutta bristles are very stiff and come from a different wild boar species raised in the high country of India. This high quality brush is recommended for those with medium thick hair.

PW1 is softer than the Calcutta and I recommend for thin hair. It's not going to have the penetration of the Calcutta and will feel much better on your scalp.

The brush has 100% boar bristles and no nylon.

The handle of this beautifully crafted brush is made from oiled pear wood, grown locally in Germany.

The wood has an engraved butterfly image that represents nature's gentle and transforming powers.

Crafted at a family shop in Germany's Black Forest, which has been making high-quality hairbrushes for over 100 years.


As a man you always want your brush to work with your hair and not against you. Once good advise is to choose a brush that is based  on your hair length. Paddle brushes are great if you have long hair. It covers more hair with each brush. Vent brushes are great if you have thick curly hair. and to detangle hair I recommend The Wet Brush.

4. Fendrihan Men's Hairbrush Pure Boar Bristle with Real Olivewood Handle - $33.95

Fendrihan Men's Hairbrush Pure Boar Bristle with Real Olivewood Handle 7 Inches


What I like is its' made in the Black Forest region of Germany with Olivewood of high quality. The brush is approximately 7 inches in length which is a perfect size.

The bristles are 3/4 of an inch long and are medium hard. You can use it for your beard if you do not have coarse hair. But it's design is not intended for use as a beard brush. It features a 8 row design.

It has a very nice wood handle, a bit on the smaller side for my personal taste but very nice none the less. The wood grains look very nice. You can tell a lot of craftsmanship went into the make if this brush.

This is also good for any women who has medium to long thin hair type who wants a high quality brush made in Germany.

Why switch to a Boar Bristle Brush? 


A boar bristle brush distributes the natural oils of your hair away from your roots and down to the ends of your hair, hydrating and coating the hair in your scalps protective oils. The result is roots that no longer look oily but instead look much healthier and of course frizz-free hair.

How To Clean a Boar Bristle Brush?


Because boar bristle brushes distributes your natural oils throughout the rest of your hair from your scalp, they will need to be cleaned occasionally. When it's time to clean your boar bristle brush, you can tell because bristles will begin to look grey and dusty.

  1. First run a fine toothed comb along the edges of the brush to clean the bristles, starting from the bristles base to the ends to loosen the brush's hair. 
  2.  Then drag the comb through the brush until you have removed all or most of the hair and excess sebum.
  3. Prepare a warm water bath and a dollop of sulfate-free shampoo or soft soap in a container that allows you to soak the bristles without submerging the rest of the brush. 
  4.  Let the brush soak for approximately 10 minutes. 
  5. Then rinse the cold water bristles. 
  6.  Use a towel to remove any excess water and allow the boar bristle brush to dry completely before reuse.

A well-made hairbrush can last for years. Hairbrushes with natural boar bristles have been preferred for centuries. German hairbrushes are carefully handcrafted to provide years of satisfying use. Most are made from non-endangered woods , beautifully durable and smooth to the touch.

While creating this list these were the well known high quality made in Germany brushes I am familiar with. If there are other high quality German made brushes that I missed please say so in the comments below. Would love to get your feedback.
