This beautiful Omega brush just landed. It's my first Omega badger and I'm very impressed. The handle design, weight and feel are exceptional. 


The bloom is quite large, very well shaped, soft and has good backbone. More to come.

Here are the stats per Il Rasoio: TOTAL LENGTH: 130 mm diam. BASE: 35 mm TYPE KNOT: Fan shape Silvertip High Density, 52.50 mm x 28.05 mm HANDLE RESIN: Butterscotch UPPER: White with metal ring LOGO: Black on white ring printed in black OMEGA LOGO: On the bottom with limited serial number for the first 100.

That's a beauty, I've seen these posted quite a bit on IG from the folks at Il Rasoio, and was hoping to see some specifics on them, they look gorgeous! Are you a member on that forum?

Si! Pennello molto bello. Ciao. (that's about the extent of my Italian, except what I can glean using my mediocre Spanish, and Translate of course).

That brush is magnifico (is that even Italian?)! While I Ann not a fan of long handled brushes, if be tempted to add one to the collection, it is so beautifully designed

Lol! I'm tempted to join, I have nearly as much Italian as you! Reminds me of Brad Pitt's character Lt. Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds!

Very nice brush.

I wonder why Omega does not make more high end badger brushes than they do.

They seem to focus on their cheap, but stellar, boar brushes.

Now that is a nice looking brush. I'd really like to try that for face lathering.

Did Omega make the handle? I've been impressed with the Omega badger knots that I have tried, but not so much the handles. The handle and knot on your bush looks fantastic.

I'd have to ask the same question based on the outstanding quality of this hair.

This is available to members of Il Rasoio, Italian shaving forum.

Yes I believe the entire brush is made by Omega.  The quality is very good. I like the weight and shape of the handle very much.

I contacted them and they were very nice.  The only problem was I have to join and pay a fee.  Unfortunately, I don't speak or read Italian and could not enjoy the site.

So, I'll just have to admire yours  Smile

I read very little Italian and usually view the site with Chrome which automatically translates the pages. FWIW the SOTD photos are outstanding! 
Yesterday's lather was outstanding. The brush felt very soft and the tips are starting to curl a bit. Hopefully Omega will produce a production model similar to the offering.
