They're almost here ! 

The images doesn't do justice to the beauty of these handles.

Well done Sr Gomes and Semogue again

The contrast between the golden boar hair and the tortoiseshell handle looks absolutely lovely! How much would they retail for?

Wow those look great. I love the tortoise handles. I've never tried a Shavemac D01, mostly due to the reviews stating they are scrubby. I assume this Silvertip offering is also scrubby?

Sr. Gomes has created another beautiful handle to be enjoyed by TSN. I'm sure many of us will have one when they are released for sale.

I believe it will be sold on Bullgoose Shaving, but very limited stock! I read somewhere that it should be available in the next week or two.

This would have been great at Bullgoose last weekend with 15% discount on all brushes. It's a beautiful handle indeed. Still a small price to pay in support of our forum

When do you think that the brushes will be ready?
I have a SOC Taj, but definitely I want this faux tortoise handle!

How does the hair in these new LE brushes compare to the previous LE brushes produced under Semogue, Teiste?

Any updates? Also, how does this knot differ from the regular SOC boar brushes?

Only three of the 2020 Shave Nook Boar Limited Edition are left in stock. 

  https://vintagescent.com/product/2020-sh...d-edition/

The boar brush has the same hair as the Semogue TSN LE Premium Boar Shaving Brush from 2018.

I am not "Teiste" but I do own these brushes and the Silvertip Badger resembles the white foro afeitado 2019 silvertip badger.
The boar brush is exactly the same as the TSN 2018.
The silver tip badger really is the great, I have never seen such a comparable three-band tip before. But first to the dimensions;

24mm 3-band silvertip knot
50mm loft
SOC handle /tortoise resin 58mm

The brush has a high hair density with soft tips and very good backbone. A certain similarity exists with the 3/band silvertip hair from the white Semogue Foroafeitado 2019.

Of course I have the advantage that I have a prototype here and the tips are a dream, the backbone is nice and firm, mixed with a very good flow and good flexibility.

Here once after the shave, very nice to see that the beautiful strength of the hair remains afterwards.

Although I actually prefer two bands I have to make an exception in this case, the ratio of softness to firmness is perfectly given here and for a three-band a wonderful feeling in the face.

Anybody received one recently?  I've one that is en route.  Perhaps it will arrive today.

I received my boar brush a week and a half ago,  have used it 19 times (shave twice a day). I think it needs time to become a good brush for me, good backbone for sure, bit prickly (Discovered why my brush feels prickly, there where some thick black hairs inside the knot, you can see two in the picture), doesn't release the soap easily (it stays inside the knot). Doesn't open up as much as most boars when dry. A month from now it might be a completely different brush. Mine is very very dark with only a faint tortoise color but that is ok.

Bummer that your boar knot isn't quite "there" yet - hopefully it will be soon......Meanwhile, my badger version did arrive this evening.  I've already given it an initial lathering session, and will put it to actual use either late tomorrow, or the day after.  Will post my overall impressions then.  What I can say now is that I'm very impressed thus far with how soft the tips are.

The 3-Band does not get the recognition it deserves. I own the 2018 TSN in both Boar and 2-Band and used to own the 2013 LE Olive Wood. The latter had great tips but was not as dense as I would have liked it.The Semogue 2 Bands are good, but also lack some density and occasionally softness. The Boars are great - though I own exactly two Boars.

Now back to the the 3-Band 2020 TSN: this brush is a gem! Soft tips, the right density (much more dense than the 2013 LE) and a short loft with a great handle make this a perfect face latherer!

Thanks to Phil and Semogue making this an excellent 3-Band brush, easily overlooked in the 2-Band hype.

Grab one while you can!
