Was this brush worth the  money, in my opinion it was.  I hope we get Semogue to do another one for us someday.  IMHO, they make the best boar brushes, period.

It's already in the works for 2019.  Biggrin

I am probably going to buy two when the 2019 LE hits the streets! I wish I had done that with the 2018 edition!

I'm reading through this thread and shaking my head at the fact that I missed out on this brush. It looks magnificent. I am using boars and my mixed Semogue knot almost exclusively, and this looks like it would be absolutely perfect for my tastes. Wow.
