Are you talking about this one?

Have you ever heard of the Erasmic shaving brush? I believe it is the very same brush, sold in England at some pharmacies for as low as £2,69 or so...

Save your money and get a Semogue or Omega instead. You will thank me later Wink

What he said, Semogue and/or Omega all the way. Fantastic quality at a great price.

I have the Dreadnought Avenger boar brush
Biggrin

It is a simple brush that took awhile to break-in (probably around 20-30 full shaves)
... but for me it was purchased for the looks of the Bluebeard/Dreadhnought logo.
I didn't expect alot from it, but it is not a *bad* brush.

Better options for boar by going Omega or Semogue for what you get by $$

I have one and it is a constant shedder.

My worst brush was the body shop synthetic, which went straight to trash can. Dreadnought brush is the second to follow.

Do i have to say 'don't buy it'? Buy a semogue, omega, vulfix or a men-ü boar instead.

In the world of boar brushes Omega and Semogue can not be beat for price and quality. There is no need to look anywhere else when a $10-$15 Omega brush will out do most badgers at any price. Semogue is a little pricier, but has better handles. I find Omega boars break in faster and are a little more user friendly, especially when new. However, Semogues are absolutely beautiful tools to behold and use and are worth the extra time to break them in.

I also found that TGN sells Omega boar knots and I bought a couple to restore two old brushes with. They came out absolutely amazingly great and are really the only boars I now use. One was an Ever-Read 100T and the other Stanley Home Products.

Best of luck.

And here I thought OP was asking about the Rod Neep Drednaught brushes and I was interested in hearing people's thoughts.
