Here we have papa boar, mama boar, and three younger boars. I've been told mama boar is expecting either triplets or quadruplicates within the next several months. Everyone is healthy and they all have a full head of hair.

Beautiful Johnny! Are the new editions on their way going to be new models to try or back-ups?

If new models, then you may really be trying to get one of each model offered, huh? Tongue

I believe all babies will be different, but one never knows for sure. I understand papa boar and mama boar both have a twin, so I might have to adopt them into the family. Smile
I get my inspiration from "oversaturn". Smile

So that's 2 SOCs, 1305, 1460, & 1470.

If staying with wood handles then I'm predicting a 2000, 1800, & 1250 will make it there. If trying acrylic then I'm guessing the 830 may just show up!

You are correct sir and I will be sticking with wood. I understand there are a couple of badger cousins out there, and I may have to bring them into the family, someday.

I really like the SOC brushes best. I would rank/rate them:

1. SOC
2. 1305
3. 1460 & 1470

Uncle Phil is sending me grandpa boar 2000 this afternoon.

I bow to you sir. If you never bought another brush and gave me two years, I might get close to what you have, in number. But you sir have some beauties they no longer make.

Based on my favorable experience with the Semogue 1250, and Johnny's enthusiasm for The Semogue Family, I placed an order this morning with Phil for a Semogue SOC with the cherry wood handle! Biggrin

You won't be sorry. You will wonder why you did not do it sooner.

A great photo. My introduction to Semogue boar brushes was with the a purchase of pair of 840's from Oversaturn quite some time ago through another forum. Now, I have added more to the den and have enjoyed returning to using more boar in the rotation.

"Granpa boar 2000" AHAHAHAHAHAH

The 2000 exists, as we know it, since 1980. It's a big boy by now.

How are the Semogue Badgers compared to Simpsons, Rooney, etc? I'm strongly considering the Cherry Wood and Ash Badgers to complete my SOC family.

I think you should definitly try one of the SOC Badgers (cherry or ash, according to your taste... or both!). I have one and I find it quite similar (when it comes to backbone and softness of the tips), with my Simpsons Duke 3 (mine has a 24mm knot and 50mm loft).

You can read here a comparison between the SOC 2-band and some Simpson brushes (in Super 2-band and in best) made by a member of the Portuguese forum barbearclassico.com (Konstantinos). Don't worry, it's in English! Biggrin

No sir. When I got my Omega 10005, it came in the plastic tube with the little plastic stand. Its main use now is my travel brush. As a matter of fact, it will get a workout Saturday morning as we are going down to Madison Friday to spend a couple of days with my youngest grandson.
