I will say I almost gave up on my 2012 TSN LE mixed brush, but I'm glad I gave it the 20 or so lathers it needs to relax and soften a bit on the face. Now I also have the 2012 SOC SE to fill that part of my rotation.

The SOC SE is some brush! I should try the TSN SE one of these days as I think I would enjoy a smaller mixed hair knot. I also have a Barbear Classico Mistura Semogue SE coming to try a lower loft mixed hair brush. If the SOC SE relaxes a bit with some use, I think it will be a difficult brush to beat. Got to love those Semogues.

Let us know how it works for you.

This thread got me all SBAD-dy. Since becoming aware, I now own three Semogue boar brushes and really enjoy each one for it's unique characteristics; a cherry SOC, a 1250 and 1470. I'd like to try a 1305 but I'm put off by the bogus bristle tinting. Italian Barber has a custom version of this model with blonde bristles, but I'm not thrilled with the custom painted handle. Gee, if only they'd make it with blonde bristles and a natural wood handle, I'd snap one up in a heartbeat (who makes decisions on TSN LE brushes?). You never know, there may also be a Semogue super badger brush in my future...

This is great info! the Semogue SOC boar is one of my favorite brushes. I have always wanted a 2011 LE size 2, maybe one day I'll find one.

I've been using the 1305 for a week and noticed it takes to water more then badger. Seems to like being soaked. It is exactly what I wanted for hard soap. After I am done, the bristles look like it went through a blender. When it dries it comes back to its regular shape. I think I will buy the SOC brush. I find these brushes are more to my liking then my expensive badger. They have body and lather very well. Lost a couple of hairs but nothing terrible. This table is a real education for those of us with no experience in Boar brushes. Thank you for taking the time to put it together.

Great post! Where does the 610 fit in on the list? Did I somehow miss it?
