Semogue 2000 Shaving Brush
[Boar Hair]

€16.78 Ex VAT
€20.64 Inc VAT

Five stars:

After futzing with some quite pricey silvertip (among other premium appellations) badger brushes, this inexpensive boar hair brush is now my go-to brush. The combination of very soft tips and tremendously firm backbone of the bristles makes for a brush that's both soothing and invigorating, to say nothing of how prodigiously it lathers. Considering the price, I can't recommend it highly enough.

Note to those new to boar brushes: they must be broken in, and soaked for three to five minutes before each shave. Break in isn't a big deal: two to three weeks of daily use will soften the tips, and your routine may involve soaking your brush for a few minutes already. This is just to advise those who haven't used a boar bristle brush before that the first shave with one isn't representative of how it will perform. It's a minor inconvenience considering the many qualities of the brush.
