I think all of them are gone. Was on the Spanish forum originally. I'm assuming what's left went on Vintage Scent?

I procrastinated to long and missed getting one. Does anyone know if they plan on offering this knot in future offerings or is there anything comparable that is currently available from Semogue?

Im afraid that no to both answers.

It was an odyssey to find this particular 2 band badger hair.

I don't get it why Bruno and Semogue don't launch 2-3 of these badgers and make them part of the regular collection. He would sell a ton of them. Price them at $100 a piece and they will sell like hot cakes. Price them at $125 and they will sell great.

Also agree! I don't keep close tabs on limited releases so I missed this one, unfortunately.

I actually prefer that they don't. It maintains the elusive or limited nature, in which they were intended.

Completely agree, they could use a higher end badger in their stable and at the prices you listed would still be very affordable in the world of wet shaving

I was fortunate to get one of these brushes since I cruise ForoAfeitado on and off.  It is, indeed, a phenomenal brush and my favorite badger hair grade.  I snap up the Semogue LE badgers whenever I can simply because they are so unique and well-made, and as mentioned are very reasonably priced.

For those wondering why Semogue doesn't do this regularly...  If you follow the thread, this LE got its start in November 2015, and it took Semogue most of 13 months to accumulate enough of that grade of hair so as to reach sufficient quantity for an LE of 100 brushes.  From what I understand (and to be fair Spanish isn't my first language), Semogue is extremely picky about the LE hair, since they do not treat or alter the badger hair.

The long and the short of all this is simply that Semogue is producing as much of this kind of LE hair as it can currently.  It's just that scarce.

I have been using this brush for about a week, and I have to say, the hair is indeed unique. Unlike some of my other 2 bands, the hair is a little finer but with similar backbone. The tips are very soft, somewhere between the Simpsons Manchurian and the Shavemac silvertip 2 band. Overall, I view the brush as a more refined SOC (slightly denser, slightly softer). I was lucky to get in on this one!

I'm going to have to watch these things more closely, those are really pretty butterscotch brushes.  What was the price tag on them while they lasted?

If I only could tell you how tough was to find this particular 2 band badger hair (non bleached) , would take me a couple pages.Lets say its was extremely difficult and I dont know if more would be available for a regular edition.
