Akita > Best Brush?

Hello! Writing to ask about a 7 1/2 year old male Akita. He came to be ours last August after he had been abandoned by his original owners and was living under our house! When he first started coming around we had no idea he was an Akita, didn't even know what an Akita was!

Since then, we have done our best to learn as much as we can about the breed and have loved having him as a part of our family. We were shocked at the amount of hair that he shed when he was blowing his coat last fall; trying to prepare a bit better for it this time around. Anyone have any tips that help? I've read regular brushing and baths...I have started brushing him every few days as he is starting to shed a bit. Anyone have any brush recommendations?
