Nice product for the price!
I purchased this shaving brush for my husband for Christmas. He hasn't used it yet, because Christmas 2018 is a few more days away! But my delivery was fast and the brush looks like one that will last him years! Thank you West Coast Shaving for providing great service and what seems like a well-made product! Merry Christmas!
Best boar brush on the market
For the price this is absolutely positively one of the best over all brushes on the market. In approximately thirty shaves I have only lost one hair.
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.
After a month of DE shaving, I decided the time was to upgrade to a brush. I bought a Van Der Hagen one, and threw it out after the first use. Then I had heard about Semogue brushes from a youtube channel so decided to give this one a try. 3 months later, and several more shaving brush purchases, and this is still the favorite and my daily go to. The handle is the perfect size for my big hands and the colors on the handle are nice. More importantly, with my Sterling soap or Luck Tiger cream I can whip up enough lather in less than a minute to do a 3 pass shave. And even though now it is nice soft and broken in, it still hasn't decreased its performance in the lather making category. I can also count on one hand all the hairs it has lost (and none of them have happened recently) in the 3 months I have been using it. Not bad for less than 20 bucks! Especially considering it was only a dollar more than the ****** Van Der Hagen badger brush.
Excellent value IMO....
I've only had this brush for less than a week, but I've had 3 shaves so far with this brush and only 2 hairs lost so far. Gets you a great lather with either hard soaps or creams. Has a great feel on your face, as I prefer a more scritchiness feeling with my brushes. I have been an exclusive user of Boar bristle brushes having tried badger and synthetic and I just keep reaching for my boars instead. Smell was hardly noticeable and I believe within 2-3 weeks it will be gone and nicely broken in. Another plus is that the bristles are a little longer and stiffer, good backbone for when you really work into your hard soap or have a deep shave bowl or mug. If your a Boar fan, this is a definite good buy for your hard earned $$$$.
