These are white bristle Semogue boars.  On the left is a SOC/Cherry handle.  In the center is a The Shave Nook 2018 LE/faux tortoise handle.  On the right is a SOC/resin handle.  All are nice bushes and wonderful for face lathering.   For me, the resin knot has a little less backbone than the other two.  The Cherry and 2018 LE are about the same.  I made the stand from re-claimed Chestnut barn wood.  Semogue hit a home run with these brushes.

Very nice stand.  I agree that Semogue hit a home run with these boars.  I'm very pleased with my SOC resin boar.

Another nice stand (I still love the one you made for me  Biggrin). I couldn't agree more on the quality of Semogue boar brushes, and I especially love TSN 2018 LE brush.

Nice brushes and beautiful stand.Smile  I recently purchased the Semogue Excelsior 830 Shaving Brush which is also 90% tops boar.  A beautiful brush!  Top notch.  However, the handle is  shorter and more compact.  I'd much prefer the handle you have on the SOC/resin model.  But the reduced size of the handle made for a reduced price overall for the brush.  so, I was able to get a 90% tops boar brush at a bit of a savings.Smile
