I'm another Nookite suffering happily with JISBAD (Johnny Inspired Semogue Brush Acquisition Disorder). Please allow me to share with you my little Semogue family. I hope you enjoy.

Here they are all tucked in on my daughter's blanket which was made by my wife...

Great family you have there. I'm starting to get the itch from the same disorder. I've picked up a semogue boar for the first time about a month ago based on all the feedback and just realized today there was only one day I didn't use it the entire month!

Nice collection Brian!

My Omega 10019 appears to be shedding. If that's the case It'll probably get PIFed to a noob with the understanding that it's to learn with and that it'll probably need replacing. I'll probably replace it with another Semogue or a Vie-Long.

You definitely should try one of the shorter lofted ones.

You have some really nice Semogue brushes, Brian. I'm curious as to your opinion of the 1250. The 1250 was my first Semogue brush, and one of my favorites.

Unfortunately I think that in my initial ignorance regarding proper care of a boar brush that I damaged the knot. I remember reading some extreme things about breaking in a boar. I used a lot of heat which I shouldn't have. From hot water to a hair dryer. My 1250 just doesn't perform like any of my other Semogues. Eventually, in an effort to satisfy my curiosity I'll have to get another 1250 to find out for sure.

That's too bad, Brian - The Semogue 1250 has the same grade of boar bristles as your 820 (Best 90% tops). If your Semogue 820 works for you the 1250 should as well.

That's my thought too Nick. The 820 with far fewer uses works so much better than the 1250. I'm pretty sure I'm to blame unless I can blame it on my wife's super duty hair dryer! Wink

That's terrible. Well, at least we know not to do that, but it still doesn't make it easier to swallow. BTW, Songwind and I were discussing this just the other day and I suggested that a hair dryer might speed up the wet/dry cycles. I just PMed him to nix the idea.

If the 1250 has had it what do you plan on doing with the brush (handle specifically) ? If you don't want it I wouldn't mind purchasing it for a restore.
