Here's some photos of a recent acquisition: a Semogue EL 2009 with boar bristles and a cherry wood handle, #35/100.

I really like shaving brushes with handles made in natural materials, like wood or horn, and this ones (and the SOC, that are very much alike) are perhaps one of the prettiest wooden handles made by Semogue. I tried to enhance the natural grain of the wood, that makes this brush, IMHO, one of the prettiest ones ever made my Semogue.

i heard they use a special bristle for both the 2009 and 2011 LE's do they offer this type of bristle in the handle that is not wood and is still available to purchase?

Thank you Murray!

The LE2011 features a special resin handle, and the knot is as close as this one as you can get, but the price is somewhat steep.
The logical alternative is the SOC boar, but it features an wooden handle, and that seems to be something that you don't want.

I would look for the 820 or 830 models - they both feature acrylic handles, and both are good options, according to you preferences. The 830 will be softer, but the 820 will have a little more backbone.

I haven't used it in a little while, but it's one of the best boars, if not the best boar just about that you can get! The B&B custom boar does give a good fight, but I'd still give the win to the LE 09.

Great photos - thanks for sharing. I've come to appreciate and own some Semogue brushes during the past year.
