Had to replace my 15-year-old Semogue 1305 Boar Shaving Brush after it split and the bristles parted company and decided to try a different brush.
WOW - this is big - fits in the hand nicely, and now am waiting for the bristles to soften as they are a little coarse (as all boar brushes are to start)
I have used the trick of How to break in a shave brush as featured here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFlMzgTae20&t=556s
It has certainly opened up the bristles somewhat
Looking forward to the softening of the bristles and lathering improvement as time goes on.
As has been mentioned - this is a BIG knot and doesn't fit my brush stand - so I have fashioned one using a brush stand from a tool hanger (available at Mitre10 Mega in NZ) - see photos
At this point - the bristles are still a little still and don't hold a lot of lather - but hard to compare a new boar bristle brush against a 15-year-old one 🤔
The hanger is attached with Command removable strip and the black bottle cap holds the brush off teh wall giving good airlow
My cheap-**** razor stand is a rubber door stopper available at Mitre 10 Mega or Bunnings in NZ
The razor is a Mühle R89 loaded with a Feather blade
I do like the Omega brushes and travel with a mini Omega Boar Bristle
This is my first purchase of a shaving brush, so I can't really compare with any other products. However, I got the impression from online reviews that Boar's hair brushes would be rough. I can say that I don't find this brush rough at all, and I have not seen any hairs coming loose. Happy with the purchase
Wanted a larger brush, for the money this ticks all the boxes. Great brush, great size, great advice from Frank as always. Thanks team!
