After just a few days they arrived, my new Semogues!
The moment I read Selected Silvertip on Facebook, I hit the order button ?
That hair to me is amongst the best on the planet.

They sure look good:

A few innovations I understand.
Full resin handles, with the proven Semogue form factor.
First impressions are very favorable.

The knots have a hybrid shape.
Looks perfect to me, but I have not tried them yet.
It is my favorite shape though.

Sizewise, spot on.

So, maiden voyage tomorrow morning I guess.
Looking forward to the first uses.

Your new Semogues are very attractive brushes, W. The handles seem ergonomically designed, and that 3 band knot in particular looks like it will perform flawlessly. Thanks for sharing, and enjoy!

It is not a surprise you bought these beauties too, my friend!
They will complement your other Semogues perfectly.

Curious to learn your review after a couple of uses.

So the first one to the pass - so to speak - was the Semogue 2019 Foro Afeitado Limited Edition Finest Badger.


In look and feel a true two-bander. A dense brush, with firm hair and good flow.
It is soft, but not the silky buttery kind of soft. Just right.


Testing with an ancient Prairie Creations Almond, this brush whipped up a high quality lather without hassle.


And it bloomed as it should:

Sad

Could not get these to upload, but here they are after first uses.

Here is the Selected Silvertip.
That one started out smelling funky, but a bit of DR Harris Windsor shampoo soap fixed that.
It is dense, and packed with soft but firm hair.
I like this Semogue hair a lot.
