Once upon a time, in a small village in Portugal, a bitter feud brewed between two families of master craftsmen. One was devoted to making badger-hair brushes for shaving, loving the softness of the bristles on their sensitive (but still manly) skin. The other swore allegiance to boar brushes, preferring the excellent lather and rugged good looks of the sturdier bristles. The feud was settled only when the two patriarchs forged an alliance. They decreed that neither boar nor badger was the one true brush, and from their treaty grew Semogue - a shaving brush company for the ages.

Okay, we may have embellished a bit on the "feud" thing, but Semogue is a brush company of master craftsmen, equally devoted to badger and boar, creating beautiful and durable products for fans of both. Give them a try, and you'll see why we think of their products as legendary.

Semogue 1520 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "good brush for the money....lathers great
My favorite brush for creams and croaps.
Semogue 730HD Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush "This is a luxurious brush and for it's price range it is a steal. I'm sure that a Kent or a Simpson would be softer or work a bit better but on a quality/$ ratio I'm not sure that the incremental improvement is worth the price. Having said that I've never used a top of the line Kent or Simpson as I cannot afford it. This brush lost a bristle a day for the first 4 days and then not a one for the past 5 months. It is soft, absorbs water a soap like a dream and then releases them on my face during the lather w/o a problem. Unlike it's brother my Semogue 830 Boar brush, it drys out very quickly after a rince and a squeeze in a dry towel. fairly dry in a hour, fluffy dry in 3 hours.

I use it only with croaps and creams though. I use my Semogue 830 Boar brush or my Vie-Long Horse hair brush with hard soaps as it really doesn't have the backbone to easily lather with a hard puck. You can do it but why struggle and perhaps end up prematurely destroying a brush that should last a lifetime. A badger made the "Ultimate Sacrifice" for my face. I owe it the the little critter to preserve its neck fur.
Semogue 1470 shave brush
Semogue 1470 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "A 5 star brush! Plenty of backbone, exceptional performance, and a beautiful wooden handle.
Good choice for a first brush
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "I bought the Semogue 830 as my first brush after abandoning my cartridges. It's been a good choice so far. It didn't stink, even when new. After soaking for five minutes while I brush my hair and teeth it's ready to lather up. I haven't practiced enough with soaps to comment, but I get a thick, low volume lather with the creams I've tried so far. The bristles are soft enough not to be scratchy or irritating. When it's time for a new brush, I might try one with less loft, but I imagine I'll stay with Semogue boar.
This brush does the job
Semogue 1800 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "I recently came across my 70's era Gillette Atra, way in the back of my medicine cabinet. That lead me to a shaving forum which lead to West Coast Shaving where I purchased this brush and some Mitchell's Wool Fat. I read about each level of brush and settled on Boar partly due to price and partly due to it being not quite a soft as Badger. I guess I liked the idea of a brush with some backbone. I only have this one so I don't speak from vast experience but I'll say this: I have no trouble whipping up a great lather with it and the application is pure pleasure. This has turned the life long chore of shaving into something so much better. There are definitely higher end brushes to be had but at this point I don't seem to be in need of them.
Wow - What A Peformance Bargain!
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "Good backbone, almost no smell, soft and irritation free against my face, and builds lather like a boss. What's not to love?
First brush; seems to be a good one
Semogue 1470 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "I'm new to this game, so I don't have any basis for saying whether this brush is good or not, but it's seemed to be working fairly well for me. I like the weight and sturdiness of the wooden handle, it didn't smell at all even when brand new, which I've heard some do. It's just now starting to spread out a bit and hold more water after a couple weeks of shaves and I seem to be getting a better lather as it does that.

All told, I think this is an excellent starter brush.
