Wet Shaving, Luxury Grooming and Smiles

Semogue became popular in the US for their boar shaving brushes. Extremely well made, fantastic boar knot, and style so unique you know a Semogue when you see one. These are great for shaving soaps, but work fine with creams as well. Don't be turned away with the prickly tips as they will soften up quite a bit with a few weeks of use.

Perfect For Hard Pucks and Face Lathering
This brush has a lot of backbone making it great for working a puck of hard soap and for face lathering. Anyone who says that the soap 'dies out' on the face is blaming his tools. This brush TORE through my puck of TOBS Sandalwood and exploded the lather off the puck. In 20 seconds I had more than enough lather for three passes. And, I like the way this brush looks and feels. The handle has a decent heft to it and it feels right in the palm of one's hand. I highly recommend this boar brush. It has real staying power.

Fantastic Performance And Quality
I enthusiastically agree with the posted review by SIX - this is a remarkably excellent brush! I own customs and high-end brushes but this brush and my SOC boar are my go to brush more than any others. The 2030B is my favorite for face lathering and I give the edge to the bigger SEMOGUE owners Club for the champ of bowl lathering performance.

THE brush for face-latherers.
First off, this brush is STIFF. I own several brushes, made from Boar and various grades of Badger, but this is easily the stiffest one in my collection. That being said, even before breaking-in, the bristles aren't uncomfortably scratchy or prickly. It easily bites right into hard pucks of soap, but it's still gentle enough to pull creams directly out of the container without overloading the bristles. Because of the impressive backbone, the 2030-b is fantastic for face lathering. The bristles don't splay out much, so there's very little "floppiness" when building or spreading lather. This lack of flop, combined with the relatively short loft, prevents your lather from disappearing down into the knot like some of the loftier boar brushes. Take the other reviews about lather "dying out" too quickly with a grain of salt, as I've easily gotten 2-3 passes without needing to reload. Like the description mentions, the handle seems to be made of solid metal. It's heavy, but comfortable to hold and easy to grip. The overall build quality is outstanding, and it feels as sturdy as brushes that cost far more. Quality brush at a great price. You really can't go wrong with this one.
