What are your thoughts on the highly touted Omega Mighty Midget (11047) badger/boar brush? I've read nothing but good things about it.

I went through with ordering it the other day and am pumped to receive it (though I'm admittedly more pumped to receive my Semogue Owners Club boar brush which I ordered on the same day I ordered the Mighty Midget).

Amazing little brush. It's a bit scrubby at first, but softens a bit over time. Makes amazing lather. I actually preferred it to my Wee Scot when I had both. The handle on the midget is a bit bigger. It works amazing with shave sticks. You'll end up with lather all over your hands but will be amazed at what it can do.

I had one in a drawer for 6 months, finally pulled it out last week.

It's a great little brush, I bought it as my traveling brush and I really feel after using it that it will do the job great.

How much money does it tend to go for in the local shops there?

I got mine new online for just $13 USD (excluding shipping).

Since removing the "original" knot and replacing it with a 20mm Finest Badger Knot from The Golden Nib I've fallen in love with this magic little brush, see here...

I've seen that little guy countless times and admired (and passed on) it. Looking forward to your review.

I bought one of these last week and have used it several times this week. It is a fantastic little brush and quickly becoming a favorite. It's just so dang cute how can you not love it? (And it works great and feels good too.)

I saw what you did there. Very nice - I had a mighty midget for a bit, but sold it off after a few uses. Had I thought to do what you have done, I'm sure I would have kept it. Very creative.

i have one and it is a very nice little brush. i find it a bit too scritchy, but for its size, it is quite amazing. i think it would make a great travel brush!

I actually like mine a lot.

One thing - there's a pure boar MM and a boar/badger MM. The boar/badger mix MM is a really nice brush (that's the one I have). It's very capable, and unlike the Wee Scot, it has no lather capacity issues. It's like a small Semogue Caravela.

I agree with Celestino - it has some scritch. Not sure why, as my Omega Pro boar brush is soffffftttttt! They obviously don't use the same bristles in this brush.

That is a good price. They cost about €12-€14 in local shops here - roughly the same price-point.
