Humm...
This one is a larger (25 mm) and denser brush, when compared to the 1305. They will have more backbone, a little more softer tips, and, in general, more adequate to facelathering, than the 1305. It feels both soft and massive on the face.

Of course this comes with a price: being denser and larger, they will need a bigger quantity of soap/cream - but they will reward you with a whole different sensation. These large boars are like a sports car - you know it will need a lot of fuel, but you also know that they will reward you with a whole new range of different feelings.

Don't get me wrong - I also have a 1305 and love it, but this and the 1305 are really different brushes.

Beautifully illustrated, Emanuel.

I wish the LE badger brushes in this series were truly fan-shaped like this.

You got it, Emanuel!

The standard/traditional Semogue models, in both badger and boar, have been the perfect brushes for me.

The LE Bristle 2 is a 1305 on 'roids. Much more dense, much better backbone, great lathering ability and scrubbiness. Tied with the LE Bristle 1 for my favorite boar ever.

I have one of the LE #2 brushes, and I've had a #1.

They do feel really nice on the face - they're soft with backbone, and that handle is excellent.

I'll echo the comment about them being lather hogs and the necessity to use a lot more product when using them. That's the only major flaw.

They do have a distressing tendency to shed quite a bit when you first start using them. This is pretty common for the denser badger brushes, but regular boar brushes seldom shed. However, they do stop eventually.

My only issue is that I cannot recommend them over a SOC boar. They're very marginally nicer in look and feel, but the SOC boar is so much cheaper that it's always going to be the better deal.

Just my 2 cents. io
