Wow, I don't think that I have ever seen such a big collection of Semogues before!!!

Am I right in thinking that you have almost every current Semogue model in your collection Teiste?

No my friend,the LE2008 is missing here as well as some boar brushes like the 620 or the 1250.
However I have a couple prototypes as well as some old models,like the 1550.

Teiste, you cheated. Nono

You gave me your favorite badger, your favorite badger/boar combo, but not your favorite all boar brush. Sherlock

Wow, you have 4 of the 2011 LE. I really, really like the look of those brushes. I'm not a fan of dying the boar - I think it looks quite nice naturally (or bleached I guess) but the way it's been dyed is really nice.

I had the opportunity to pick one up that I found on a website but figured the <$30 SOC was a better choice on something I wasn't sure I'd like vs. ~$75.

Those are the protos of the 2011 LE edition : they dont even have a number of type of bristle writing on the handle.

Long life to Mr Gomes and Semogue!!!

I'd love to hear your impressions of the 820. The joke was that you would have to live to 150 to need more brushes ever again, but now you will have to live to 100 just to break them all in!Tongue

Wow! That is an impressive collection, Teiste.

BTW - Thanks for all you have done to help make the world aware of Semogue brushes. You have done a lot of good for a lot of wetshavers.
