I loved my Semogue badger/boar mixed knots, but for a reason now long forgotten I let them go...

My favourite was the TSN version (for obvious reason), closely followed by the wood Mistura. Heart What was I thinking!  Huh

What brush are you lamenting having let go of?

Beautiful brushes, Ben, I love Semogue! Never did manage to get my hands on the Semogue TSN LE... I actually believe it's the only TSN LE brush I don't own.

I sold a Simpson PJ2 best seven years ago when I bought a Rooney 2/1 finest.  I don't know why I sold the PJ other than the Rooney was expensive and I wanted to justify the purchase.  Lesson learned.  Now I won't sell a brush until I'm absolutely sure it's not for me.  I've 5 brushes that I've thought of selling, but after using the brushes one more time before putting them up for sale I sold only one.

I enjoyed the BC Mistura enough that I have 3 and rotate between them.  When I need a change, I either use the Cerda or Texugo versions.

The Semogue mixed knot is one of the best.

When it comes to my TSN 2012 LE, the phrase "cold, dead hands" come to mind.. it's a marvellous brush.

I had a 26x52 Wiborg in a Disco Barber Pole made. I loved the face feel. On a whim, I traded away all of my Wiborgs. I miss that brush.

This M&F 2XL Blonde Badger 29 x 52mm; such a dense and scrubby knot with a lovely handle. I had thought it had too much backbone.

Agree 100%.

The Semogue SOC 2012 is the only brush I use.

The Semogue 2012 SE was an excellent brush, but I also let mine go.

I have three Semogue 2012 SEs. I rotate between two of them and one is new in packaging (to swap in at a later date?). These and a synthetic for travel are all I use - no regrets!

Not sure about brushes. I have to get a few to new homes some day soon. I am having a hard time deciding what stays and what goes for sure.

This thread isn't helping.

Biggrin

I had one razor in hindsight I would like to have held onto. I don't lose any sleep over it but I do think about it when I look at what I am going to keep.

The problem with my current situation now is I'm running out of space.

Loved my 2012 LE, but the knot was a bit too scritchy. Glad it found a new home. The handle was awesome!

Yes it does

For me it was a Wiborg Basket in White Badger. Like you though, I know it has a good home where it is cherished.

A special brush that was picked out for me personally by the maker, but that I passed on for stupid reasons. Kick myself every day since.

I got lucky when I was fairly new to this and was able to order an M&F. I sold it because I thought it was crazy that I owned such an expensive brush. I've since gone through about 20 equally expensive brushes, none holding a candle to this one.

Nice to know I'm not the only one who uses this brush exclusively.
Only 1 in rotation as I shave every other day so it has plenty of time to dry out. I bought 3 as spares with the intention using one as a repalcement and one each for each of my sons for when they start shaving. (Might just buy them a Vulvix 404 instead, they will never know!)

I would say it takes a while for it to break in, but when it does it has very little scritch, but great backbone.
