Same.

Any idea how long it will take to arrive in the US if we purchased today?

Thanks for the tip.  I bought the SOC 2 Band in Cherry Wood for around CDN $60 shipped.  I'm hoping this time around the tips are softer than a couple of years ago when I used to own one and then sold it because it was too scritchy!  Fingers crossed...

Good question. I cannot discern where the company ships from. European Union obviously. I'll post again when I receive the brush.

Mixed reviews for their shipping online.  One guy said 10 days and some said no info for months.  Geez Louise I hope This wasnt too good to be true.

Discount looks like it just ended too!

From what I have heard and experienced their shipping has been decent.

I have purchased twice from them, shipping is nothing I would worry about. One package arrived in a week or so the other took slightly longer. Nothing but positive experiences for me , and what a deal they offered here congrats to all that got a few nice things.

Shipping did take a long time when i purchased a Cerda last year (2.5 weeks?). VS shipped it out quickly but it was stalled at US customs for-e-ver. Just set your expectations accordingly and it will work out fine!

I was in peru but my soc boar arrived before I got back.  I did one test lather and also had a nice shave with it.  I hope it softens soon Smile

Don't give up on it. It takes quite a while for the SOC to break in. Maybe a month or two. But its well worth it.

Soaking before the shave makes boar brushes soft. Breaking in the very  tips can be accelerated by lathering on a piece of rubber for 10-20 minutes with the brush wet ..Smile

I soaked while showering then rubbed on my face.  You are saying to simply soak, load the soap, and then do circular motion on a softer rubber surface? I will have to think about what I have that is rubber but I should be able to find something.

Also can I use this brush daily to break it in faster or should I stick to every other day?

I only wet the brush for the rubber pad. In repeated use my brushes are initially dried  with a blow dryer on mild setting, then set on a dripstand for a day.  More use should be be better for break in.
Hope I was able to help
