You can get on the VintageScent.com mailing list.  I received Bruno's regularly sent news letter which said the remaining brushes were available for, I am assuming, non-foroafeitado.com members/users.  I am again assuming there was a handful left because the remaining brushes sold quickly.

I do not understand how Teiste, Bruno and Mr. Gomes are able to develop and sell brushes such as this for ~99 Euros.  The knots in the Semogue SE/LE brushes are spectacular to say the least.  I have been fortunate to acquire seven Semogue SE/LE brushes in boar, mixed, and badger knots and each one is excellent.

Take care,
Ed

I used mine yesterday for the first time...I have to say this is truly an outstanding knot. Definitely the best knot I have used from Semogue and among the best knots I have used period. It is denser than I expected, very soft tips with zero discomfort and the perfect amount of backbone. Coupled with such a lovely handle, this is definitely one very special brush, and I feel very fortunate I was able to acquire one.

This arrived from Bruno at the VintageScent today.  It is a beautiful brush.  Excellent workmanship.  I am very fortunate to be able to acquire one.

I will give it an introduction to LPL Rose de Pushkar tomorrow morning and will post some pictures.  I am quite confident it will be a keeper.

Again, many thanks to Teiste, Bruno, and Mr. Gomes for their efforts to make this brush happen.

Take care,
Ed

Poor phone picture, but it is a beautiful brush, lovely weight to the handle and butterscotch colour. It's had 4 uses and it feels very nice on the face. Not gel tipped but lovely scrub without any scratch or scritch. It reminds me (in some aspects) of my Epsilon 27/55 but with a better sized handle.

Is a very beautiful brush with a high quality knot.

I am loving it. The knot have a perfect combination of backbone and very soft tips. The price is less than the quality.

First post shave bloom.  Initial impression is silky smooth tips with a surprisingly firm backbone.  Looks like it will do good for both scuttle and face lathering.  I am holding off on lather shots until I get a better feel for the brush.

This brush is phenomenal in all aspects.  Although I am not a fan of most modern butterscotch iterations, this one included, the ergonomics of the handle and the well executed engraving help me move past that nitpick.  The knot is as good as any I have ever tried from Semogue, including the LE Horn brush from a few years back, providing firm backbone combined with very soft tips.  I was pretty bummed to miss out on the 2015 LE, but this more than makes up for it.

As been stated, this is a phenomenal brush..
Soft tips with good back bone..The tips are soft even when dry. It provides a nice face massage..
My nitpick is the deacal. Not sure how that's going to hold up..Other then that, I am extremely pleased with the high quality of the brush.[Image: PlbyEdq.jpg]
