Semogue 2000 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.I second spending the few extra dollars if you are looking for a good basic/beginners brush. It lathers supremely, and looks great. Stiff yet soft. It has the name branded into the wood on the base of the handle which is a neat touch, I took off the sticker to give it a more minimalist look. West coast shaving will really take care of you.
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.Whish I bought this before my badger brushs. It's all I use now.
Omega 10066 Boar Shaving Brush ".
Omega 10049 Professional Boar Shaving Brush, White Handle "I have wet shaved off and on with pure badger brushes for several years. I purchased the Omega brush and was startled at the size of the thing. I am still trying to find the sweet spot with lathering different creams. It does a great job on pucks from AOS and TOBS and fantastic on hard soap from a local vendor. New to creams and croaps but very happy so far.
Semogue 1470 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush Great little brush at a great price!
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.They're all in the drawer. This is the only brush I use. I wish I had just started with this brush. I started wet shavng getting the most expensive items. You name it I got it. Razors, creams/soaps brushes etc... Just unnecessary! Nothing beats this brush with The Fat or Proraso or Cella with a Merkur Slant.
Semogue 1305 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.I have several brushes that I rotate through and really enjoy using this brush. You definitely can't go wrong, especially for this price point.
Semogue 1470 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.The handle of the brush I received is a little darker than the picture, warmer. It's a very nicely made brush; the handle is comfortable and smooth. The bristle is great, softer than you'd expect. This brush is a great replacement for my old one!
Omega 10049 Professional Boar Shaving Brush, Red Handle.A brilliant brush: 1) It has a really big head, much bigger than my little synthetic brush I started with. 2) After washing and soaking overnight when I first received it, I never experienced the "boar" musk smell. 3)Makes great lather obviously 4)Absolute bargain for under $10. I know most other badger cost a lot more, and you can buy this with absolute confidence that you will get a good brush.
Omega 10066 Boar Shaving Brush I love this brush! I find myself grabbing this brush over my silvertip badger 9 times out of 10. Great face lathering brush with good backbone. Absolutely can't beat the value.
Semogue 1470 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.What a fantastic brush! High grade, undyed, natural boar bristle, with a simple cherry wood handle, this brush is the pilgrim of the Semogue line up. Don't let it's simple looks fool you. I lathers as well as any boar I've used, andw when broken in, is easily as good as brushes twice it's price.
Omega 10049 Professional Boar Shaving Brush, Red Handle "What to give someone for Christmas? Well after giving gifts for so many years one runs out of ideas of what to give. BING! My husband gave me some feminine shaving cream and a beautiful pink handled brush and a pink razor. The cream smells divine. That gave me an idea and I gave the 3 cream and brush. At first they thought it was for their husbands despite their names on the package that arrived! Then when I alerted them it was for them, they used it and I have gotten beautiful thank you notes that said things like: "Thank you so much for the unique Christmas gift. It is totally something I wouldn't splurge on, so that makes if a perfect gift. The shaving works well and smells so good......." Think about it for the women in your life! Sandra
Omega 13522 Banded Boar Shaving Brush "Worth the price and loved it
Omega 81052 Banded Boar Shaving Brush.Looks great out of the box. I had to put it up to my nose to smell a tiny bit of boar funk. Makes lather fast and loads up like a champ. Very little shedding and the bristles are soft for a boar. At $14 its a steal of a deal just get it.
Omega 11047 Banded Boar Shaving Brush very tiny, but it feels nice in the hand, easy to break in, works well with hard and soft soaps and creams. it is also a very light shedder, great gift for any one, and one of the best mixed hair brushes I have.
Semogue 620 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush Great brush for face lathering and bowl lathering. Handle isn't as comfortable as some others I have used but for the money this is an incredible brush.
Omega 11047 Banded Boar Shaving Brush I didn't realize how small this thing is. It works great despite it's small size. I will be ordering a knot and turning my own brush soon but this brush will still get used often. I am very happy with it. It would make a great travel brush. No smell when new. It is breaking in really well. It has good backbone but is still somewhat soft and comfortable to use. I didn't notice any significant shedding. Maybe one or two hairs tops. Just buy it already.
Omega 11047 Banded Boar Shaving Brush This is an awesome little brush. Seems quite small compared to most others, mainly because of the little handle. The Knot is also smaller than most, but not that much. The badger/boar bristle combination give it good backbone and a little scratch, but not too much. The smaller size makes it easier to rinse after using. I’m a small guy, with small hands and face, but I’m sure it will work great for big guys too, especially if you have small hands :)
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.I had been using a high end badger brush and on a whim I purchased this. It's all I use now. Keeps its shape well and virtually no shedding! Gets softer over time. Insane quality at an affordable price! I too use this with Mitchell's Wool Fat Soap for a great thick lather combination. Use the Edwin Jagger Large drip stand for this brush. Looks great against black. (Special thanks to West Coast Shaving's customer service for assisting me with the right stand!)
Semogue 2000 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.This brush is amazing. It can easily work up an amazing lather from the toughest soaps. At $23 this thing is a steal.
Semogue Owners Club Pure Bristle Shaving Brush, Cherry Handle.Absolutely beautiful brush! Picks up soap or cream with ease and holds it like a champ until ready for shaving!
Semogue 1250 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.Great boar brush, tried just about all of them. Good comfortable handle, no paint and the bristle's are not dyed which I like. Works on hard soaps with ease and once broken in is easy on the face. Good for bowl or face lathering.
Omega 81064 Banded Boar Shaving Brush.Been using boar brushes for 40 yrs, and this brush, with out a doubt, is the best boar brush on the market! It exceeds expectations, soft on the face, gives up lather easily, not floppy, but not stiff, wonderful for face lathering.
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.I really like this brush. Lathers up nice, expoleats my face. comfortable handle, I like color and shape. Low price. I have a best bagger brush that I trade off using and like but not sure witch I like better. Shake and hung properly, holds its shape and getting softer with age. Go Semogue! quality Brush
Semogue Owners Club Pure Bristle Shaving Brush, Cherry Handle.The title says it all. Like a lot of guys I have way too many shaving brushes to have only one face. I'm not a big badger fan. I like the brush to massage my face when I lather. This is the perfect combination of enough backbone to sacrape up hard soaps plus give my face a good massage when lathering, and the large knot holds plenty of soap for a solid 3 or 4 pass shave without getting thin.
Omega 10083 Professional Boar Shaving Brush.I have been using this brush for almost 10 years. If you prefer shaving soap, the stiffness stands up and the bristles maintain over the long term.
Omega 10098 Professional Boar shaving Brush I am really pleased with this brush. It holds a lot of water so you can really whip up a nice lather, plus, it doesn't seem to shed bristles like many cheap brushes. In my opinion, this brush is inexpensive NOT cheap, a real value. Additionally, the large handle gives some heft which helps both to whip up a lather as well as helping to spread the lather on your face. I seldom write product reviews but this brush warrants a mention.
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.Okay how does this not have 5 stars every review?! Seriously!! I own all the grade of badgers I'm a wet shaving fiend you could say. I ordered this brush bc I had the Omega 10048. It could work up a lather but felt like I grabbed a handful of reeds down by the river and rubbed them all over my face. Idk about you guys but I could care less to buy a brush I have to soak in hot water to hold a decent amount of water to handle a few passes. I read that semogue has a few different grades of percentages of tops they use in their brush to make them softer. This brush had the highest percentage. I dipped this brush in some water, and instantly I noticed it held more water than my omega. When I say more I mean A LOT MORE! It's not even close. I started to lather it. Wow!! I could close my eyes and honestly it feels like a silver tip badger with backbone. Not a used fence painting brush backbone but more like a black badger but the tips are crazy soft. It held moisture for a few passes. I had to check the box again I didn't even believe it was boar. Semogue hands down is the best boar brush maker. See ya Omega 10048. You got your a** handed to you today!! Buy this brush. Don't even read the bad reviews saying buy a Walmart brush or nothing special. This might sound a little harsh but I think those guys could take a spin in a 2015 top of the line Mercedes and say, 'eh nothing special. Rather have a used 1998 Dihatsu.' I almost didn't buy this brush bc of a few reviews. Buy it you won't regret it. I'll put money on that!!!
Omega 31025 Banded Boar Shaving Brush.Bought this because I prefer the stiffness of Boar, and a tall loft. This brush meets those criteria, with a great, attractive, stand fitting handle to boot. Unfortunately, the brush I received failed in it's Boar hair quality. Lots of stray defective hairs, rough overall cut, cheap bristles. With better bristles, this would have been a 5 star daily use brush. Ordered from Amazon, so maybe received a used, rejected, and redeployed item. If that was the case, then I'd give Omega a 5 star rating for the brush, and Amazon a 0 star rating for shipping used as new. EXCELLENT BRUSH, IF IT HAD DECENT BRISTLES!
Omega 11126 Boar Shaving Brush, Ovangkol Wooden Handle "I've had this brush for roughly 4 months, and it has surprised the heck out me. Like the title says, excellent bowl lathering from this boar. Just the right handle length, good loft and backbone. Though it was the first boar brush that took a while to break in, about a months worth of shaves. A little stiffer than I would prefer for face lathering in the beginning and still not quite there compared to my Omega #81052 or the Semogue #1305, which is my favorite boar brush. But the handle & loft of the brush is awesome for bowl lathering. Surprisingly, haven't lost a single hair from it. If you bowl lather, this one will fit the bill nicely. It's definitely worth being in my rotation.
Semogue 830 Pure Bristle Shaving Brush.I've been wetshaving about 2 years now. I've used nothing but silvertip brushes. After only 1 use, I like this 20 dollar brush better than my silvertips. Much better. Great backbone to work the lather into your whiskers, without being scratchy. Compared to my handmade Rodney Neep Dreadnought, the Semogue looks like a mangy cur standing next to the Westminster dog show winner...but looks are deceiving. At 1/10th the price, I'll take the Semogue. I bought it for travel, but now I'll have to buy another, as it's all I want to use.

Vie-Long 04312 Cachurro Horse Hair Professional Shaving Brush.I've had this brush for 3 years and love it. It is still like new. No hair loss at all. I'm 48 years old and been wet shaving since I was 14. I've used cheap boar brushes in the past and hated them. I'm a cowboy here in Texas and ride often. It's just natural that I own a horse hair brush. Lol. I highly recommend this brush for any new wet shaver or seasoned veteran. FYI there is a matching bowl available through Vie-Long. Best Grooming Tools has them.
Omega 20107 Professional Boar Shaving Brush.What a great brush! I had read many stories about the stiff bristles of a boars hair brush. Couldn't prove it by me with this one. Thought it was so great a bought a second one to rotate and allow drying between use. Knot is very secure.
