This week I acquired 4 new brushes; 2 boar, 1 2-band badger, & a synthetic. Each morning & night I feel like a kid on the playground as I use each brush to shave with or test lather. Some will require some break in which is a process I am finding that I enjoy. The hardest part now is choosing which one will get the start each morning. It is a difficult choice, a self-imposed hardship, but quite enjoyable as well.

So I'm curious... How many brushes have you added to your Nook in a short time (we'll say a week or two)? Was the process fun for you or did you find it to be sensory overload? Would you get brushes in bulk like that again?

I have gone through several brushes (maybe a dozen or so) but I generally never have more than 2 or 3 at a time. I find that I have a favorite or two and unless a new brush can knock off the old favorites, it doesn't get used. Then it usually ends being sold rather than sitting around feeling neglected. Same thing happens with razors. Soaps, creams and aftershaves are a different story so I guess it is really just a hardware thing for me.

I have 2 Rooney badgers, 3 Omega boars and 3 Semogue boar brushes. I think it was at least a week or two with each brush before I considered adding another one.

My most recent acquisition is the Semogue 1305 which arrived yesterday. At this point I hope my SBAD is in remission! Biggrin

I try to only add one or two at a time or they tend to get lost in the shuffle. The most I have added in a two week period is probably four.

Brian, I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on the SOC 2-band.

Nick - once broken in, the 1305 is a sweet, almost silvertip-like soft brush.

I once added a dozen new brushes, when I found a dealer who had a dwindling supply of unused Somerset Simpsons that he was selling off. It was fun adding them to the rotation. I keep a written rotation schedule, attempting to maintain a pattern of Pure-Best-Super, using soaps with the Pures, a mix but mainly soaps with the Bests, and creams with the Supers.

I would assume so, Robert, since it lathers like a Champ right out of the box! Smile
