Semogue Badger & Boar Hair Shaving Brushes

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.

SOC bristle brush
Semogue Owners Club Pure Bristle Shaving Brush, Cherry Handle My wet shaving started 35yrs ago with a Kent-BKL12. That serviced well above 25yrs and still exists today, in marveleous condition. Though knowing abt bristle brushes, I never got one until 4yrs ago. Amongst bristle producers, Semogue is the best and today I own 2 SOC bristle brushed as well as 2 SOC-badger one's. For their pricerange, they are unbeatable and the performance of both badger and bristle are top notch. My most go to SOC-brushes are, in fact, the bristle one's. Once broken in they offer similar softness as badger, but they are stiffer, which I prefer for exfoliating the skin. Yes, naturally they hold lesser water than badger, but that's not a bid deal. Great brushes, even greater value for money...
Semogue 1305 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "I have quite a few expensive silvertip badger hair brushes decided to bu this one just for kicks and after the break in period I find myself using it all the time I kinda want to kick my own behiind for spending so much on so many diffrent silvertip brushes.

Semogue Owners Club Super Badger Shaving Brush, Cherry Handle "For this price, it's georgeous looks and overall quality, theire is nothing better. Not even Simpsons, Shavemac et cetera.
Quite impressive
Semogue 1460 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "Now, I don't know about you but I'm a firm believer in "you get what you pay for" (buy cheap, get cheap). I took the gamble at $15. But Boars hair? Never heard of it until recently when my 8 year old silver tip (merkur) which I was never really impressed with, simply degraded in quality and looks. It wore out because I used it hard to lift my whiskers which themselves are tough as comparable copper wire. In short, Badger just doesn't offer any "backbone" to speak of. It's meant to create lather and mildly lift and exfoliate.

Out of the box this Semogue 1460 had no odor worth mentioning. The company logo is a sticker and I simply don't like logos or stickers on anything after I buy them. I took the logos and emblems off my truck. This sticker came off with moderate effort and 30 seconds of patience. It probably wouldn't have lasted very long under shaving conditions anyway.

My first shave was just what I wanted. This brush has very nice backbone but won't rough up your skin. The ends are quite soft but not Badger soft. It really did the job on the whiskers too. Holds water much better than I anticipated. Where have boar hair brushes been all my life?

How well does this brush hold up? Time will tell. Suffice to say that out of the box and one shave did not produce one hair falling out. If the brush lasts 2 years (I'm certain it will last decades if not become an heirloom piece) then $15 every 2 years is still light years cheaper than trying to keep up with modern shaving systems. Who in their right mind needs 5 blades at a time anyway?

I ordered on a Saturday evening and Westcoast got it out that Monday late afternoon . It was in my hands on Wednesday. Honestly, from Chino California to East Coast Florida in 2 days 1st class UPS? I mean that's better than the USPS by 3-4 days.

Hats off to WCS, Semogue and UPS! Thanks to all of you.
Love this brush!
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush "This is a very fine brush, especially for the money. Good backbone , works up a good lather, but not too stiff at all, and it breaks in very well and is getting a bit softer as it goes along. Lost only a couple of bristles and it looks elegant. Frankly, why spend more?
