Semogue 830 Excelsior Boar Shaving Brush
This charming "Vintage" looking brush has an elegant two-toned acrylic handle with a glassy base and a crimson red top.
The Semogue 830 Excelsior shaving brush is made with Semogue's well known 100% natural boar bristle hair, featuring a metal ring as a hallmark of uncompromising quality. The ring is there as an added measure to hold the bristles in place snugly. This fine brush is totally made by hand from start to finish. The handle is hand turned by a skilled woodsman and later is hand sanded one by one. Then, the knot is made by the master craftsman using the traditional methods passed by past generations to provide the most wonderful brush.
Boar bristle is most often the choice of those who desire the greatest scrubbing action from their brush. This boar brush has got a strong backbone which is highly desirable when used with hard soaps like Mitchell's Wool Fat, Edwin Jagger & Haslinger Soap. Superb for its exfoliating properties, boar bristle remains the most popular alternative to badger.
