First brush, boar or otherwise
I've been using conditioner to shave for years, a trick I got from some women's magazine the wife had picked up. It actually works well with disposables and even with a 1960s Gillette. But I picked up an ancient SE Gem Junior, which is pretty aggressive. I figured I should get some real shaving soap and a brush. I liked the look of the Omega and the price was right. It arrived yesterday. As soon as I opened the package one of the cats was all over me. She wanted the brush. Note to self, do not leave it where she can get it. I didn't think it smelled that funky. Okay, on to the test run. When it's wet it does smell a bit funky, not like a wet dog but like a... wet boar, I imagine. It turned up what I'm going to call a decent amount of lather and only lost a single hair. I was a little worried it might be abrasive but I wouldn't call it rough, at all.
Great brush
I have used badger brushes since 1975 and regarded boar as a cheap substitute. My current EJ super badger brush was getting too floppy after 10 years but I did not want to spent $80-100 on anew one. So for $8 I got boar. I soaked it overnight and soak it for 15 minutes before using it (while in the shower). It is great. It has a good backbone yet is soft on my face and makes lots of lather. It cleans up more easily than badger too. I put the badger away.
My favorite brush, amazing value
I can't comment on the white handle because they made a mistake and sent me a black one. I'm not to upset by this because my main goal was to have a second one in a different color as I already own a red one.

My uncle talked me into ordering one of these after a discussion of fine badger brushes. He had heard that these brushes break in over a long time and rival super soft expensive brushes. I thought he was nuts, but at about $10 I didn't have anything to lose.

I'm very glad I took that first step. Omega really makes their brushes well. (Yes it might stink for a while but this quickly improves. If the smell really bothers you just wash it with some shampoo.) I soak my brush in hot tap water wile I shower. This changes the very stiff scratchy hair into stiff hairs with very soft tips. The more you use it the more the tips split becoming softer and softer.

Unlike a badger brush this doesn't feel like a wet mop, these brushes have some backbone. If you want to scrub hard you can. I have some stiff neck hair that lays very flat. With this brush I can really lift them up. Yet painting on cream I can barely feel the brush tips. Also this brush is huge, it will load a lot of soap nicely.

I now own at least four other Omega boar brushes of different styles, they really make a good brush at an unbelievable price. My only complaint is I wish they would offer their boar brushes with a nicer handle. It's like putting discount used tires on a high end sports car. The plastic handle is huge, ugly and feels cheap but is very comfortable so I won't complain to much.
Great brush
This brush is great. It doesn't hold too much water , just enough to build a great lather. The size is larger than I thought but is easy to handle.
Such a Nice Brush
This really is a great little brush. Good-looking, perfect size and so reasonably priced. Wonderful for travel too.
