I ordered this brush last week, and had my first shave with it today:

Very interesting brush, and my first horse hair. I love the handle, beautiful olive wood. The size is good as well for face lathering.

I found that it's softer out of the box than both of my Semogue boars were, but it had way more scritch to it than the boars. Kind of a paradox to me. It lathered great though, and held enough for 3 passes.

This one will go into my brush rotation, along with my 2 Semogues: 620 and 1470.

That is a gorgeous handle! Although I don't experience too much scritch with my horse brushes, when I push down I can definitely feel some stiff bristles in there that are scritchy and that have the potential to be bothersome. I usually maintain a lighter touch to avoid any potential irritation. The feel will improve with more and more use.
Thanks for sharing and congrats on your new brush Biggrin

Congratulations on the nice brush!

Personally, I don't enjoy the scritch of horse-hair brushes.
