It is still breaking in but boy, something about it whipps Mike's natural soap into thick sticky lather in no time and like no other. Call me impressed

I have a few Semogue boars but the SOC is the only one I need.

It may be the perfect boar brush

I just wish I could pick up the same bristles in a smaller size. My SOC is about three months in and it's getting enormous. Very nice feel, though, and getting better every week.

Im searching for a better boar than 1305. I know the SOC is awesome, but i dont like wooden handles.
If i could put the Soc knot in the IL Rasoio acrylic handle, i would be a happy men.

I agree, the SOC is a great brush. I still place the 1470 at the top of the heap for value and performance, but the SOC is tough to beat, wooden handle or not.

Its an inexpensive brush. Mine was fantastic. And for the price, you could buy a new one every year if the wooden handle bothers you.

Its a win/win no matter how you look at it.

I tell you that handle is one of, or the, most comfortable that you can get.

I've been moaning for years to get them to make a clear acrylic version with 2-band hair.

Try the SOC 2012 Edition. It has a terrific mixed knot and an acrylic handle very similar to the wooden SOC only slightly more comfortable.

I second that, and have actually stopped using my Caravela in preference to this handle.

SOC = Absolute Most/Best brush that can be acquired at their various price points. Mr. Gomez (if I remember correctly) knows how to make a good brush that will work properly.

My first Semogue was a 1250 which I loved. I finally broke down and ordered the SOC cherry handle about a month back and have not been able to put it down.

The 2012 SOC mixed s a face lathering machine. I use it with MWF and find that pairing well suited.
