I'm going to get a Semogue for my next brush. Haven't decided which (it would be one of the inexpensive ones, as I like cheap brushes).

Alpedhuez55-First, love the cycling reference. I've just started working with boars and have been very happily surprised this month. I've got 2 Omega's and 2 Semogues (and 2 more Semogue's on the water). What are the #2 and #3 brushes in the top row of your photo?

So far the 1250 is running well. The Italian Barber LE (looks like a 1305) is very dense, and doesn't work like the 2 Omega's nor the 1250 yet. The 2 on the way are the SOC and the Barbear Classico Cerda like the one in your picture. If these boars continue to impress, my badgers will slide out of the rotation.

I have several. I don't think you can go wrong with the 1250 blondie. It's just a really, really great brush. I like it more than the Owners and the 2000.

Great collection. The SOC has become my favorite boar brush, and I'm liking my new 2012 SE a lot.

What would be the difference between the 1250 and the 1305? It looks like the dimensions are the same, and I sort of like that multicolor handle.

# 2 is the RazoRock Amici brush...the clone of the elusive Caravela.

# 3 is the Spanish Forum / Foro Afeitado horn handle sivertip LE

I think the blond hair breaks in a touch faster. The 610 and 820 are on the short list for my next brush.

I am led to believe the 1305 has a softer bristle, but only marginally, however, the 1250 is really good anyway and breaks in quickly. I mean really quickly. I have a preference for blonde bristles, call me a purist. I see no point in faking up boar to make it look like badger. That technique is called 'sketching'. I also like the wood handle to be plain, but I do have some painted ones, but they do tend to chip. The wooden ones? No issue. Why not get both? Smile Cheap enough. I got mine from the Portugal Online Shop. Cheaper still. Nice guy there and they come lovingly gift-wrapped Smile

Teiste's review explains the differences much better than I have:

Travis, looks like it might be the Semogue LE "Big Shave", just not positive
