…is a subject I touched upon before – as well as mentioned in passing in regards to a disposable shaving brush – but I found a recent article discussing the same thing.
Given that the latest article focuses on a ‘mere’ 200 cases in the US and the UK, and there were literally millions of soldiers and civilians shaving daily… I think the whole anthrax scare was little more than a scare overall; serious for the people who contracted the disease, but a rather minute risk if the manufacturers of shaving brushes had taken a tiny bit of care in the manufacture.
Key take away? You might want to be wary of old shaving brushes, but there is plenty of other things that are more likely to make 100 year old brushes dangerous to use…
