Good quality knot and handle. Works great for soaps. Breaking in nicely.
Very nice brush!
I'd been encouraged to try a boar brush, but also been warned that they often smell oddly at first and need to be broken in. I purchased this Semogue 1470, and am glad I did. The brush did not smell of anything at all when I took it out of the box; a night soaking in warm water softened it; and I used it without trouble (no scratchiness or anything) in my shave the next morning. A very good value.
Great little brush at a great price!

A 5 star brush! Plenty of backbone, exceptional performance, and a beautiful wooden handle.
