Used less than half a dozen times
Not yet broken in

"...made for Italian Il Rasoio forum.

This brush has a 22 mm knot and 52 mm loft
made of a blend of finest badger hair (new type) and 90% tops boar hair,
similar to the the famous Caravela brush,
but with a 22 mm knot, instead of 24mm.

Also the handle used in this brush is a "vintage one",
not longer in production, that has been "rescued" for this project."

Semogue 2013 Foro Afeitado Limited Edition

Number 13 of 50

[Image: 2cwkMGM.png]

[Image: IM99CVx.png]

[Image: 32njwxN.png]

Used less than half a dozen times

"...densely stuffed with the very best Selected Silvertip Badger hair,
a whiter and softer kind of Silvertip hair
to provide the ultimate shaving experience using either soaps or creams.
The manufacturing of the knot was successfully achieved after intense testing
to make sure it provides the optimum balance between backbone and luxurious softness.
The knot is 24mm in diameter and 52mm tall.

There's more about this brush which makes it the most exclusive of the Semogues brushes ever produced.
Besides having the rare Selected Silvertip Badger hair,
we made a beautiful Asian Water Buffalo horn handle just for this model.
The new silver sticker shows the new Semogue logo
and below the word "Portugal".
The engraving in the base shows the limited edition information -
the brush number, the classic Semogue logo and the year of production.
It is 47mm tall.

This brush feels really luxurious in the face.
It lathers easily any hard soap or cream.
In terms of comparison to other production brushes,
I'd say that it feels like a Simpson Chubby between the 1 and 2 model
and the hair resembles a lot the Shavemac D01 silvertip hair."


$140 including US shipping with tracking SOLD

Ben is a gentleman and a pleasure to do business with. The only thing nicer than the products he sells, are the messages you exchange with him. Be confident when dealing with Ben.

I have this same Foro Afeitado however it was not marked and numbered. This brush and it's 2band counterpart have killed my Sbad...for the meantime at least.

One of these days i want to start a post and see what Ben's top five or ten (or fifteen) brushes are. You know, your desert island collection Smile

Ben - you are tempting me again. I will resist as I've made some other big purchases lately. Someone please buy this soon so I don't have to feel I am missing out!

Having bought several items off Ben previously, I can also say it's always a pleasure.
