The well-known 1305. Congrats, it's a very capable brush.

A word of advice, though: avoid dipping the handle in hot water, or hitting it in the sides of the bowl (if you bowl lather), as the varnish tends to shatter. It's the only downfall of such a great brush!

Congratulations. I started with the 830, a similar brush and lost control from there.

It'll break in beautifully and just keep getting better and better. Good tip about not immersing fully in hot water, just the loft - just back from the handle about a quarter inch or a bit less. It'll draw water in and the water level will lower a bit (in my experience). Then when you're ready, a wonderful water-soaked/ brush ready fro lathering with your favourite. Face of bowl lathering? With painted handles, I face lather because bowls tend to knock the handle a bit. Well I do, but being a bad workman, I'm blaming my tools Smile

An excellent choice. The 1305 was my first Semogue and first boar brush. Even though the handle looks like it has been through the wars it is still very much in my rotation; it is that good.

Nice! My first brush was not a Semogue (and it wasn't a durable brush at that.) My next three brushes were Semogue and each one has served me well. Enjoy yours!
