The Semogue 2020 Shave Nook Silvertip Badger Limited Edition brush is a limited batch produced to the gentlemen at the wet-shaving forum “Shave Nook”.
Following the huge success of the 2018 Shave Nook Limited Edition brush, Semogue was asked to make a new brush based on the previous edition, but with a more ergonomic handle. So Semogue chose the SOC handle, being the most ergonomic handle Semogue has, to be a part of this brush, using the same beautiful Tortoise resin along a new, never used before, 24mm knot of boar hair.
Unfortunately, this hair is hard to fund, so there isn’t enough stock to add it on a regular brush edition (like the SOC).
Due to its hair density, this brush would eat your shaving soaps. However, the lather won’t disappear inside of the knot. The tips are very soft and has plenty of backbone.
Performs well with both and this is not a “cream brush” or a “soap brush”. This is truly an all around brush for face or bowl lathering, with creams , croaps or soaps.
Note: These photos are from the prototype. The brushes are now being produced and will have a slightly smaller sticker and the engraving of the serial number on the base.
