All of these brushes are ideal for travel.  They'll all dry very quickly, and either have a built-in protective case or otherwise are so small as to fit into a normal medication container.

Smaller brushes are simpler to use and consume less cream/soap, but provide what most would argue to be a less luxurious experience.   Such are the joys of travel when practicality rears its ugly head.

Dovo 918096 Silvertip Travel Brush (All Stainless Steel)

Dovo 918096 travel brush Dovo 918096 travel brush
Dovo 918096 travel brush

The Dovo 918096 is a silvertip brush much in the style of the 'turnback' models below down the page, but with a push-fit assemblage instead of screw threads for the brush head and base.  It shares identical satin-finished steel w/ the fine Dovo 499806 razor/brush stand; there's no doubt it is a looker, though you pay a weight and price penalty for that sturdier, highly-refined metal...every sample we've seen is a perfect, fairly bulby knot of silvertip badger hair.  The bottom line as I see it; if the knot's quality's your #1 criteria in a traveller, only the Simpsons "The Major" in Super Badger is close, and I'd still give it to this one.

  The head doesn't screw in or affix to the handle when you're travelling, so if the equivalent silence of the Simpsons "Major" is required, a single spongy packing peanut in there seems to do the trick.

  • Weight:  135 grams
  • Handle Diameter:  29mm
  • Knot Diameter:  ~19.5mm
  • Overall Height:  145mm in use (81mm compacted)
  • Bristle Loft:  50mm

IL Ceppo PB5177

Il Ceppo Travel Brush Il Ceppo Travel Brush
Il Ceppo Travel Brush

The IL Ceppo PB5177 has a distinct advantage over every other model on the page; it is the only one that's made of brass, and brass threads are the best of all - even superior to stainless steel.  You'll wear out before those threads will bind, though were it I owning I wouldn't be against giving them a one-time light application of lithium grease.   Brass does bear a little weight penalty, though.

The pure badger ~19x47mm handmade knot's quality more comfy than most boars, and definitely softer than the Mühle faux-fiber model, but not at the comfort level of the Dovo 918096, Simpsons "Major", or Vulfix 2273 or Turnback Super also found on this page.   Everything's relative; I used the pure versoin a few times and, with a Valobra shaving stick rubbed right on my face, I could certainly be happy with it.

For +$42, the silvertip version offers comfort equal to the Dovo 918096 in my opinion, and a superior knot to everything except the Simpsons Super Badger version of their "Major"; and even then, I can't say I really think the Major knot's clearly better, just clearly arguably so...

It all comes down to your preferences for price and return; I doubt it can be debated that, weight aside, this body's cooler than anything else we've got to offer you.

Ruthenium plating on this unit's the best plating I've ever seen; cold, shiny, super cool looking!

All parts made in Florence, Italy.

The Simpsons "Major"

The Simpsons 'The Major' is a beautifully conceived travel brush.  Fits inside its own handle.  Much like others on the market, even those made by the same folks, but more elegant.  A smaller, shorter, and slightly thinner knot to allow very quick drying for storage/travel.  Available in either Best or Super badger.

  • Weight:  ~79 grams
  • Handle Diameter:  ~40mm
  • Overall Height:  ~120mm
  • Knot Diameter:  ~18mm

The Simpsons "Wee Scot"

Simpsons Wee Scot

At the end of the Simpsons alphabet lies the Simpsons Wee Scot, a best badger brush with a lathe-turned resin handle.  This teensy little brush, really not much bigger than an average human's pinkie finger, is a great travel brush, collectors brush, or a brush for those who prefer its easy ability to modulate the amount of water/soap within.  Pity the handle's so tiny that it feels like you're writing on your face with a lather pencil, but the knot is, despite this great tragic flaw, special for what it is.

Embossed with Alexander Simpson's signature.

  • Weight:  ~18 grams
  • Handle Diameter:  ~24mm
  • Overall Height:  ~66mm
  • Knot Diameter:  ~14mm
  • Bristle Loft:  ~36mm

Vulfix Turnback

Vulfix turnback Super Badger Brush Vulfix turnback Super Badger Brush Vulfix turnback Super Badger Brush

The Vulfix Turnback, available here in their Super Badger hair, is the softest and floppiest of the travel brushes we sell, though of course that's a relative position - no travel brush can be amazing at those traits, but this one does alright.  When it is time to pack up the knot/turning part goes inside the dual-purpose handle/travel tube.

  • Weight:  36g (102g together with handle)
  • Handle Diameter:  40mm
  • Knot Diameter:  20mm
  • Overall Height:  150mm (attached to handle, ready to use case) Bristle Loft:  46.5mm
