After their 1st shave !
Semogue has a tendency to bloom very fast than Omega but even in his first shave manage to have lather for 3 passes
I pray to be better than SOC.

I love my Semogue 2000, but just a heads up, it goes through a very rough patch at the beginning and really doesn't hit its stride for several months. Once it does start firing on all pistons, though, it truly is awesome: much more controlled than most other Semogues, despite the high loft.

I haven't too much patience,i have to 2-3 months to make a brush work
If Semogue has such a "diva" brushes then each one who has so much patience must take an award.
I say that because i am still working on my SOC,it's the brush that cause me too much effort than any other.

So a year later, what's the verdict?
I actually gave up and sold the SOC.... but started thinking about the 2000...

I have been mulling the acquisition of a 11137. I have not seen it at Pasteur's but they could probably get it.

I like the wooden handle on the 11137. I think it is beautiful.

I love all my boar brushes from Semogue. I currently am breaking in a 1305 that started very very soft. My last SOC also started very soft and was a joy to use. I had a 2000 that was a little prickly and I gifted that one to a co worker. I think I will replace the 2000, pick up another SOC , pick up a 1250 , and an 1800 in the coming months. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Cerda , if anyone has an opportunity to pick one up, that is also a stellar brush.

I just ordered a SOC this week. My first one.  I haven't decided if I will use it for face lathering or bowl lathering. I will see how it is at both.

The SOC starts out a terrific face lather brush and as it breaks in and splays out tends to be more of a bowl lather brush for gents that like to add pressure as they face lather. I myself use very little pressure while lathering so the splay is very controlled and thus the SOC for me as well as the 2000 are nice face lather brushes.

I think that is why some guys love the SOC for face lathering and other guys say it's lousy. I guess if someone used just a little pressure it would work for them. I don't use a lot of pressure when I face lather. The only time I face lather is when I use a shave stick. I don't care for face lathering otherwise. But I love using a shave stick. Lately I enjoy it more than bowl lathering.

I have had both of these...kept the 2000.

While I liked the size of rather Omega, the handle is kind of cheap in comparison to Semogue wood handles.
