Love the handles, just fabulous to look at and use.

But do these things ever break-in and get soft?? Or do they always stay scritchy??

they will break in after some use.
a few bristles will drop...I "pre-shedded" mine
after a bit of use, by hand, it lost some,
then only drops one very rarely afterwards. (and I hardly "baby it")
they are decent enough for what was originally
a low cost brush. I do like the knot size/loft.
decent handle, too.

My crude measurements show:
Knot 20mm
Loft 51mm
My brush is about 20 years old and banded, current ones are not. I have heard that Burma Shave brushes are "clipped ends" but my vintage banded has split nicely.

I had one and in fact, it was my first boar brush. I liked it very much. Very attractive, too.
