Err as the title suggests!

I love the BC Texugo. Perfect face latherer. Great knot.

^^. I'd love to add this one to the den. My favorite so far is the 2013 olive wood handle badger.

Sorry, the olive wood 2013 is a special edition not an LE. As for LEs-- Mistura!

Cold dead hands and all that... ever so often one pops up on the BST, but it has been a while since I saw one last.

Oopsie. Limited Editions I have tried would be the Amici boar/badger mix, the 2011 size 1 and 2 Finest Bristle and the Cerda with the wood handle. I did like the Finest Bristle Size 2 but not much into boars these days so I do not own any of them anymore.

It's fabulous and I really enjoy using it for face lathering.  Somewhat petite with good backbone, fairly dense hair and relatively soft tips.   IMO clearly a higher quality knot than my Semogue SOC 2-band which I also like but don't like as since obtaining the 2016 LE.  This is an impulse buy I don't  regret.

I would love to find a Foro 2016. I am assuming they are long gone?  I currently own only a jäger super. I am new to brushes .
Thanks for any help.

Troy, they are indeed all gone.  You may be able to get a used one if it comes up for sale on the BST.  If not, there are plenty of other options.  One of those options is the TSN 2017 LE, which is a collaboration between TSN and Thater.  The bulb versions are sold out, but some fans remain.  These are superb brushes, both as to handle and knot.

You joined after these brushes were released, so you can read extensively about them here:

Gotta agree with Teiste.  I understand he went to great lengths in acquiring the hair for this brush.  Plus a stunning handle.

Great thread.

Have to agree with everyone. I am lucky to own all the brushes mentioned plus others. They are all superb in their own right.

The Mistura was my favourite for years but with experience the magic of the others have been unlocked.
