Good Evening Nook!

As September is fast approaching, I thought it could be a great time to devote a little brush love to one fantastic workhorse of a brand.
Even though they seldom break the bank, almost everybody seems to have at least one Semogue that s/he loves.

I'm going to try to make it through the entire month using nothing but my favorite Semogue brushes, updating this thread with occasional pictures and thoughts as I hopefully learn a little on the journey. Cool Who's willing to join me?Cool

For the whole month of August I've been using nothing but my two Semogue brushes, the SOC boar and the 1470. I've just recently purchased an SOC two-band brush. I'm in!

Oh, this would have been fun, but I don't think I will be able to keep away from two non Semogue brush I have on the way (or soon).

How about this, I'm down for next year!

I guess I won't be using them until October.

Maybe you should just see how long you could last.

I like that idea. I should have a new SOC Boar on Friday, couples with my SOC Badger and TSN LE I will hold out hopefully to mid month. The Boar will need the breaking in.

Before you know it, it will be October. Both of my boars need a little more breaking in.

Here is my modest entry request:

[Image: IMG_4378.jpg]

I will not say that I will try because I can say I will easily do it, since it will be a real pleasure as usual.
Semogue, oh... I am too embarrassed to say how many I have as the picture shows just a few.

June 10th should be Semogue Day on this board. Mark that down.

Count me in, if you don't mind me joining.

I'm down for the Portugal Express!! I've been 2 band Simpsons nutty lately and the recent TSN LE has me looking over my shoulder at all the killer boars in the den I've been neglecting.
Of note: 09' LE Boar, 10' B&B LE, 11' Finest Boar Size 1, Caravela, SOC 2 band in cherry, TSN LE, and Rudy Vey Custom "1805".

Well, seeing as i am Portuguese, i have a few Semogues and i have never used one shaving item for a whole month, why not.
Here is what i have from the many i have reduced! Oh, my goodness, and these are just the Semogues!
