I'm setting up a second shave area in my house. I already own the Omega Pro #49. It works well but I'm looking for something smaller. I was thinking of an Omega 10005, pure boar with a beechwood handle for my second bathroom and an Omega #40033 all boar (no badger) Mighty Midget as a travel brush.

What do you guys think?

The 10005 and the 40033 are both excellent brushes and would serve you well.

I'd agree with Johnny. Another knot/brush I like from Omega is the 10810 but they have so many options you shouldn't have a problem finding something that will work for you.

I have about 6 or 7 Omega's and my favorite, (luv luv luv) this piggy, is the 31025.

I like your two choices and would even suggest a TGN (Omega) 22mm knot in your handle of choice if you might consider a custom brush.

I have the 10005 and enjoy it. However, mine only had a super thin lacquer coating that started chipping off after the first few shaves and now water soaks into the wood during every shave.

Thanks for the heads up on the 10005 issue. Maybe I'll opt for the 10810 beehive in maroon.

If you haven't already made a purchase, I highly recommend you look at the line of Semogue brushes, especially the 1305. Dollar for dollar it has to be one of the best bargains going and is an excellent brush.

My personal favourite is the Omega 73645: it features a "Premium Grade" boar knot and a heavy, sturdy handle, capable of putting to shame some handles that I have made by Simpson or Rooney. The brush is heavy and sturdy, it weights 93g - have to make a review of it one of this days...

However, that was one of the "Premium" line of Omega boars, made specially for connaughtshaving, and they are now not available at the moment /(and I don't know if they ever will be again...).

My second favourite is the 11126: a very nice boar knot with a quality wooden handle, instead of a cheap plastic handle displayed by other Omega models. I really like this brush and it is easy to find at your favourite supplier...
