Gentlemen,
For some reason I have not grown to fancy these three boar bristle brushes. Oh, they're fine brushes, and not even broken in yet, really, but they're not for me. Go Figure. From left to right:

Omega 11137
Semogue 1470 — SOLD
Vulfix 2234 — SOLD

Price is $12 each U.S. shipped. Paypal is fine. Thanks.

If I didn't already have two 1470's and a 1460, I would buy that brush. That will make a great face lathering brush for someone. One of my favorites.

Yes, Johnny, those are good brushes, especially the Vulfix. It's a 22 mm. and the boar counterpart of the legendary Vulfix 2234 badger. Anyway, for some reason I have not warmed up to them.

Obie, a question if you will entertain. I've never used a Vulfix boar but have several Semogues. Could you give me a brief idea on how they compare/contrast?

Much appreciated.

Hello Brian,

I think the Vulfix boars are just as good as the Semogue boars for their quality and workmanship. And some of the Omegas. I have several Semogue boar brushes and two silver tips. They are fine brushes, yes, but like many legends, theirs is a touch overblown. After all, there are other fine boar brushes. (My apologies for going off topic.)

Anyway, to my knowledge, the 2234 Vulfix boar is a handmade, and the workmanship is impeccable. Of course, Vulfix is big a name in brushes. I have the 2234 badger and love it. This one is a 22 mm. with a relatively fat handle for a good grip. I think I bought it for around $35, plus shipping. I wish I could have warmed up to it, because it's a topnotch brush and as good as the Semogue brushes out there, as I noted.

It has a the standard backbone for a boar. In its density, it is similar to the Semogue 1470 in the photo. It's a quality brush and well suited for the shave den or for travel. It's a wonder for face-lathering.

Stay well,
Obie

Thank you Obie for the response. I also have the 2234 in Super badger & find it to be a fantastic brush. At this time I cannot take advantage of your great offer but I do appreciate you giving me a better understanding of the Vulfix boars.

Regards!

Teiste,
That is a sweet little boar brush, but for some reason I could not get close to it. Strange, eh? Now, the badger version of the brush has been with me for some years. It's the same size, same quality. Go figure.
Stay well,
Obie
