Well I was on Whipped Dog's site last week looking to buy a new silver tip and did what most people do, I bought a boar Biggrin .

I wasn't aware that he sold boar brushes but when I saw the picture and Larry let me know the loft height I was sold. I have used it three times and must say it is the nicest boar brush I've used. There are Omegas and Semogues in my den and the WD blows them away. The WD is like using my Omega 10083 but has a bit more backbone and softer tips. It is great for face and bowl lathering. The handle on the WD is as nice as my Semogue acrylics and blows away all of my omega brushes.

The price was $21 shipped which isn't bad when you consider most places charge between $5-$8 to shipping. This makes the WD fairly competitive with the Omegas and cheaper than most Semogues. The performance of the WD, in my opinion, exceeds my other boar brushes.

WD Boar 26/55 vs Omega 10083:

Bob, that sounds like a very solid brush. Especially when you are comparing it to a well-broken in 83. A 26/55mm knot sounds splendid.

Sounds like a nice brush.
Do you have a link, I don't see the boar knots on the Larry's website.

Larry doesn't show the boar knots on his site. If you look on page 4 under face prep (WD Boar Brush ) you will see two assembled boar brushes. It is best to shoot him an email to see what boar knots he has in stock and then pick a handle.

Nice brush Dachsmith. Have you had a chance to try it out?

I saw that burgundy square handle on Larry's site.

Actually I was debating to get this or a Semogue SOC. Maybe I'll flip a coin Tongue

I prefer the WD boar over my cherry wood SOC. The knot works better for me and I don't have the wooden handle to worry about.
