This is a do it all brush and I'm very thankful to have one back in my collection. I'm hoping for a future batch to be released again perhaps in different wood types.

Don't mind my hat in the background gents, it's to keep my head warm in this -20 degree weather we have been seeing lately! Enjoy your day.

The Cerda is one of my favorite brushes....especially when face lathering with soaps such as Jabonman, MWF, Tabac, Saponificio Varesino. To me, one of the best brushes ever from Semogue.

PS. Nice den.

That's a fanatastic brush. If you get a chance give the Mistura a try as well.

The bloom on this brush is just right and it's getting very soft, I have had two others but not long enough to break them in like this one is getting to be. I would really like a chance to try the mistura. I have a soc on the way and was planning on replacing my 2000. The 2000 was my first boar ever and I really liked it. I ended up gifting it to a friend that at the time was just getting into wet shaving. Along with the 2000 I gave him the rest of my chianti lavender soap and some cella to get him started.

When the Barbear Classico brushes first came out (the numbered ones), I fell on the sword and ordered the Cerda, the Mistura, and the Texugo. Of the three, the Mistura is my favorite. Hard to explain - good firmness of the Cerda yet softer. Great with hard and soft soaps. Great for face lathering.

If it's softer on the face and still has that soap tearing ability I'm in , nothing like making lather and performing a 2 pass in under 5 min before work.

I am sorry to disappoint you, and me being Portuguese and all, but I don't like boar brushes! My sensitive skin has acclimatized itself only to high-end badgers, now! Biggrin

I'm really glad that these brushes are being so loved!

I can say that the initial idea of having a knot similar to the 1305/830, with the same lovely soft bristles but a shorter loft (more prone to facelathering) was mine Blush when we were discussing how the next edition for the Portuguese forum would be like. The idea seemed just right... and something new in the Semogue line-up.

The handle shape came from an old Semogue model (Semogue 208).
Then, more ideas came up from the members, and with the help of Bruno from vintagescent and Semogue, the other BC editions (Mistura and Texugo) were born.

Then, it was just a matter of letting Mr. Gomes do his magic and boom, the result were those lovely brushes.

You can read the initial presentation that I've made of the first prototype, here on this TSN thread. Wink

I would say that the BC Cerda and Texugo are my two favourite brushes, ever. Excellent face lather-brushes. Couldn't be happier with them.

I have all three (Cerda, Mistura, and Texugo). I very much like the Cerda and Mistura. I really like the hair quality in the Texugo, but I wish it were denser.

My Cerda and Mistura aren't nearly as broken-in as that Cerda in the OP's picture. I'll need to work on that!

So are we to expect another LE brush? If its a secret, don't worry I will not tell anyone. Biggrin

I have to agree. The mixed knot is my favorite of the bunch, but they are all very nice brushes. I actually bought a second Mistura as a pre-need replacement.

the mistura is my favorite of the three. the cerda is also a great brush though. i wish i would have grabbed another mistura as a back up. hopefully semogue will do something like this again soon.
