I've been eyeing this brush for it's mixed badger/boar knot. Anyone have any experience with it?[Image: 8db878930587618161d587edccabf9a9.jpg]

I can’t comment since I’ve not used it. Last week, however, I ordered the Semogue Taj mixed badger/boar (bodger), aka the Caravela, on speck. I think this is the same knot as yours.

My initial experience with the new Taj Mitura (which I assume, but don't know, has the same knot as the wooden handled SOC) was extremely positive.  

Per a tip posted on BarbearClassico a while back I conditioned the new brush knot with a four-days soaking followed by a 24-hour drying.

On my initial use the Taj Mistura felt to me nearly the same a better grade of Semogue two-band badger - e.g., TSN 2018 LE two-band - but with greater backbone.

I have this one and the new Taj as well.

One cannot praise the brushes enough.
The quality is impeccable, great knots and handles (both the wood and the resin).
Good proportions, and a pleasure to work with. 

The feel of the knot is firm, even a bit prickly but I like it a lot.
For reference, I also like Manchurian badger.

I own all three SOC brushes, and wholeheartedly recommend the mistura!
It does a fabulous job. [Image: a0cbac6a96c984ceb248bfae62d47812.jpg]
