Anyone ever had any dealings with a brand called Koh-I-Noor. I think they are made in Italy.

They are nice boars. They are similar to Omegas but the bristle seemed finer. This is a recollection from a few years ago.

I've never heard of them but that's a nice looking boar brush Johnny. Where did you run across it?

Shoebox carries them. These are the "veal" of boar brushes; they only use baby pigs strictly fed bon-bons in order to obtain the long, thinly shafted piglet hair.

FYI- they have a single Merkur 11c left for the fantastically low price of $67 for those feeling frisky.

The badger version of the same fiery material Johnny showed is pretty sweet looking too, scintillating if you will.

Johnny -

I had the Koh-i-Noor version of the Omega Professional. I forget the model number. I used it for a few months and gifted to a friend as I prefer my Semogue 2000. As I remember it, I enjoyed the knot. It had a nice face feel. The hair seemed to be a bit finer than the Omega giving it a slightly different face feel. I don't have any experience with the brushes with the root-beer looking handles. I am not sure how the knots differ from the one I had.

Regards
