Just came across one of these, but can't find any info on it and never have seen a plain ivory colored handle on a Semogue. Do you guys know anything about this brush?

Nice! It looks unused. Never saw one before, but I'm sure one of the long-time Semogue-meisters will know. It's really quite attractive.

I found this on eBay from a sale....

The Semogue 680 Excelsior shaving brush is made with Semogue's well known 100% natural boar bristle hair (75% tops).This brush is totally made by hand from start to finish. The handle is hand turned by a skilled woodsman and later is hand sanded one by one. Then, the knot is made by the master craftsman using the traditional methods passed by past generations to provide the most wonderful brush. Boar bristle is most often the choice of those who desire the greatest scrubbing action from their brush. This boar brush has got a strong backbone which is highly desirably when used with hard soaps like Mitchell's Wool Fat, Edwin Jagger & Haslinger Soap. Superb for its exfoliating properties, boar bristle remains the most popular alternative to badger.

- Knot (at base): 22 mm 
- Loft: 50 mm 
- Handle: 45 mm 
- Total height 9,5 mm 

Made in Portugal by Semogue
