Note: Brush is in new condition and packaging, and is of excellent quality. It is only discounted due to an odd grain pattern or flaw in the wood handle. Even though this can make the brush unique, we do our best to offer consistent products when purchased from our main inventory. The brushes on this page are still warrantied against defects in quality and workmanship. Product photos on this page are not of actual discounted items being offered. 


A Tradition of Excellence


A Family Legacy
With more than 100 years of brush making experience, the long held tradition of German excellence is evident in every brush.

Wood Handles Finished to Perfection
The brush handles are made from locally grown wood. The raw wood is finished to a smooth perfection, then oiled to preserve and protect.

High Quality Wild Boar Bristles
With care and experience, only the best boar bristles in the world are chosen for the Desert Breeze Distributing hair brushes. These boars are raised for meat, but the bristles are saved for use in high quality brushes.

The first cut of the boar bristle is the most firm, and is the only cut we use. The root (follicle) of the bristle is gentle on the scalp and is a sign of a high quality brush. The photo at left shows bundles of boar bristles that have been cleaned, cut, and are ready to be made into brushes.

Boar Bristles Not from Factory Farms
The boar bristles are not from factory farms, but come from special types of wild boars raised on small farms in rugged terrains and climate conditions. Supply is limited for these unique bristles, and is why they are more expensive than those from factory farms.


Why Boar Bristles are So Good for Hair


Not All Boar Bristles are the Same
Boar bristles vary between species, age of the animal, and the climates they are raised in. In the rugged climates the boar bristles originate for Desert Breeze Distributing brushes, the boars grow especially thick bristles.

The microscopic photo at far left shows a human hair next to a bristle from a PW1 brush (from the Tibet Plateau)and a bristle from the Calcutta brush on the right(from the highland of India).Both are from different types of wild boar, and produce high quality bristles for use in premium hair brushes.

Gentle on Hair
Boar bristles are good for hair because they are similar in structure. Like hair, boar bristles are made of keratin. As seen in the microscopic photo at left, scales of a boar bristle from the PW1 brush closely resemble those of a human hair. These scales absorb the natural oils produced by the scalp, and distribute it gently down the hair shaft. Synthetic bristles cannot provide the same benefits of a quality boar bristle brush.

*Over time, regular brushing with a boar bristle brush will have a powerful effect on the overall health of your scalp and hair, and will improve the texture and vibrancy from roots to hair ends.


  • Brush size is 2" wide (brush area) x 8.75" (total length).
  • PW1- Medium stiff bristles from boars raised on the Tibet Plateau. Best for fine to medium thick hair. 
  • PW1-S - Same as PW1, but with softer, more pliable bristles. Best for short, thinning hair, or for those with very sensitive scalps.
  • Calcutta - Stiffest bristles from boars raised in the highlands of India. Best for hair of medium thickness, or those who prefer a more rigid brush. 
  • For penetration through thicker hair, brushing hair in sections may be needed.
  • Handle is oiled pear wood, grown locally in Germany. The wood has an engraved image of the butterfly — a symbol of the gentle and transforming powers of nature.

Pure boar bristle hair brushes from Desert Breeze Distributing - a brush with a soul!



*Pure boar bristles naturally condition hair, improve hair texture, and reduce the need for styling products. Since boar bristles are similar in structure to human hair, they are not anti-static. If static control is needed, either smooth hair with palm of hand after each brush stroke, mist hair with water, or apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to hair before boar bristle brushing.

*Please note: Our hair brushes are guaranteed to be hygienic, in factory new condition, and completely unused. For this reason, returns on hair brushes are not accepted for any reason. If you have any questions or concerns before purchase, please contact us directly and we'll be happy to help you choose the best brush for your hair type.

    I received the discounted bristle hairbrush today. I am so delighted! After looking at every hairbrush on the internet including Mason Pearson , I chose your pear wood boar bristle brush. It is everything that I was looking for. It is not only superb for a hair brush, it doubles as a wonderful beard brush. What a great bargain and your service is impeccable. I am going to recommend you to my barber. I love German brushes. All of my shoe and hat brushes are German made and are more than a cut above all others. Rest assured that I will buy from you again.

    Discounted 100% Pure Wild Boar Bristle brush PW1

    Posted by Linda Ray on Dec 27th 2019

    I like the brush but unfortunately it was too soft for my fine, short hair. I should have spent a little more and bought the Calcutta.

    Brush was discounted due to flaw in wood grain, but it looks fine to me and the flaw is not apparent. Very satisfied with the quality.
