Fuchs Bristle brushes are harvested from a special breed of boar raised solely for its bristles. The bristles are carefully harvested using a process similar to the methods employed in shearing sheep. The boar are extremely well cared-for; their bristles are harvested repeatedly during their long lifetimes.
The bristles have different degrees of stiffness, depending upon from which part of the body they originate. This is why natural bristles can be supplied in soft, medium and hard variations. Although most bristles are a light beige color, occasionally some black bristles, noted for their stiffer texture, are used in natural bristle toothbrushes.
Fuchs bristle brushes generally run one level softer than the comparable toothbrush in nylon. Thus, a soft natural brush is equivalent to an extra soft nylon one, a hard natural brush is equivalent to a medium nylon brush and so on. Natural bristle brushes are especially useful for people who require soft-bristled brushes to avoid damaging tooth enamel or sensitive gums.
Fuchs RECORD-V brushes have ripple “V” bristle fields. These uniquely shaped bristles help prevent plaque formation, as they can more effectively get in between the teeth.
Fuchs is one of the original manufacturers of the ripple V bristle toothbrush always at the forefront of dental care technology.
Fuchs has marketed this type of brush head worldwide for more than 40 years. Although billed as a new dental care discovery, ripple v bristles have been a successful part of the Fuchs line since the 1950s!
The Record-V is the best-selling bristle shape in the Fuchs product line.
The Record-V Toothbrush also features a uniquely angled neck, providing maximum agility in reaching even the furthest corners of the mouth. These unique brushes also have the distinction of being copied by most of the major US toothbrush manufacturers over the last few years, albeit at much higher prices.
These brushes will last about 2 months before they need replaced. They are a great introduction to the oral benefits of boar bristles. If you find you like the benefits you might consider moving up to one of our KOH-I-NOOR boar brushes which are way more expensive but made of more durable bristle for longer effective life.
Color: Red, Green or Blue. Please specify in Comments section.
Brush is 7″ long from head to toe.
These come assorted in Red, Blue & Teal Green. Please put your color preferences in the Comments Section when you checkout. I will accommodate you unless sold out of that color. If you note a second preference will ship that if not sold out. Otherwise will ship whatever color I have. So if your color preference is FIRM note that & if out of that color I’ll cancel the brush & refund your money on it.

Review by Life Without Plastic
Review by the soap dispensary
We recently received a small supply of German-made, completely natural toothbrushes. These have handles made from sustainably harvested wood (beechwood) that have been preserved with vegetable oil. More importantly, the bristles! The bristles are made from sterilized pig hair sourced from China, the only place in the world that currently supply the long-haired pig bristles. The bristles come from a domesticated breed of pig that is raised for meat. The skin, along with the bristles, are normally discarded but with these toothbrushes, what was once considered waste, can now replace plastic!
This is a very well thought out product – from the material to the packaging. It comes wrapped in a small piece of biodegradable cellulose plastic enclosed with a metal/cardboard clip that is 100% recyclable. Available in Adult and Child size.
Care: these toothbrushes need to dry out thoroughly between brushings.

from the Koh-I-Noor website:
We started from that and even today the quality of our toothbrushes is hardly reachable.
We produce them from the very beginning with soft natural bristles, bred under medical surveillance, or with Tynex (first quality nylon) with round tips to be gentle to gums the most.
For the ones needing a more gentle effect are available also the version with badger fur bristles.
We categorize the 6 different hardness of bristles:
MM very soft (badger fur)
DDN very hard (black boar bristles)
DDV very hard (white boar bristles)
The range of handles, models and bristles cut is very large, in order to allow follow the different needs of the end user.
