I hope to have a banded boar model in a few weeks. Eventually, I will add an additional handle style or two.

This knot looks great in the 4125 handle.  I understand the next shipment may include the 4125 in ivory.  I'm definitely in for one of those.

These brushes are looking great.  The banded ones are going to look pretty sweet too!

I agree with all the positive comments about their appearance. They are visually quite appealing. My apprehension relative to boar brushes is the way they feel on my face. I’ll sit on the fence a while longer.

Nothing wrong with that. If one doesn't mind the used approach, it saves some cash, too. Wink

They feel great but you have to break them in,,, You could just keep Hand or bowl lather about 10 times and will be good to go great backbone soft feel on the face just like a high mountain white,, And I have sensitive skin

My previous experience with boar brushes was with half a dozen or so Semogues, ranging from the tiny little 1460 on up to the SOC. Of those I tried I preferred the shorter lofted brushes. The longer lofted knots felt like a rope mop on my face. It was unappealing to me. Granted, I have never tried another brand. Maybe the Thater company will impress me differently. Your reference to HMW is high praise! Perhaps I’ll break down and try one at some point. For now though, call me Mr. Dumpty Smile

Interesting. I’ve never bought a used brush. This is something to consider.

I just ordered the black beehive. I can't wait to try it out. I never had much luck using a boar brush with a shave stick. Maybe this one will be different.

They're really a wonderful brush but you really have to break it and give it time

When I first saw this brush I thought, who would spend $85. on a boar brush. The Semogue SOC brush sells for $45. and even that is way above most others. But here I am with one on order.
The care and quality that went into making it just drew me to it. I couldn't resist.
