Starting off the month with my latest brush, the Semogue ForoAfeitado 2016.

Extremely soft tips, lather machine, and a good backbone due to the short loft. The handle is not only very ergonomic, but the finish is the best I've seen Semogue do in recent years. All in all, a remarkable brush, by any standard. Well done!

Today I received an excellent addition to the den.  A Wolf Whiskers Blue Train Custom 12 Dimple Bishop with 24mm TGN Silvertip Grade A Badger Brush.  Im'm soaking and breaking it in tonight.  She's a beauty.  Peter does great work and provides nothing short of a professional purchasing experience.

Purchased an Ever Ready and Hardright Anchorset brush to restore and a group of razors for the Brazilian Mono Tech!   Aaaaa Going to have to wait a bit for the razors to come in.

Magnificent brushes. I'm really enjoying Fitjar Slattery cream--a wonderful, light scent and performance is outstanding.

A nice find at today's antique show. Vintage Giesen & Forstnoff Adoration De Luxe #666. In close to NOS condition, scale are straight and crystal clear. Bolster logo and inlay are a finishing touch.
