Browsing around some sites and I keep seeing these Omega Silvertip brushes...lots of interesting handle choices and IIRC they're supposed to be very soft and luxurious, not necessarily backbone monsters.

Any owners out there care to show some pics of your Omega Silvertip brushes and tell us what you think of them?

I'm sure Aaron will be around eventually (once he returns from his Omega poster boy world tour) and will share his pictures & thoughts. Wink

The only Omega silvertip brush I own lasted me 11 years and was my first "quality" shaving brush that I bought.Now Im still having the handle which I will re knot with a super badger or silvertip badger hair knot.
You can see the brush in this video :


It wasn't the most dense brush that I have tried,but it was perfect for facelathering with soaps and sticks.I truly can recommend this brush if you are looking for a soft brush with a good flow.

Haha... not quite just making the rounds. Wink

Well the Silvertip is by far the softest hair I have dealt with, when you consider the price on some of the models they're a steal; my Swarvoski being the exception to price.

Floppy yes, luxury yes, superior to other brushes; only personal preference will decide. If you can find a softer Silvertip for $50 let me know. Wink

From top to bottom:
631
622
Swarvoski Crystal Handle Finest Silvertip

The small 19mm knotted 631 gets used the most now of my Omega's, the larger brushes come out when I want to pamper myself; yes even the 26mmx64mm floppy knot of the Swarvoski can lather any soap including MWF.

I need to add to my collection, but I have every size you could possibly want, except for maybe the really tiny Bambino handle.

Teiste, these are affordable enough to reknot and buy a new one. Biggrin

Anyone ever try one these, with the "ergonomic" handle?
