Is anyone aware of any brushes that have a combination of boar hair for the center and possibly a perimeter of badger?

Vulfix 404 come to mind, but I'm not sure. Actually I believe they are just mixed all together. I know of no brush that has it mixed the way you are talking about.

Just to tease Johnny another boar/badger combo brush is the Semogue Caravella.

I have tried the Vulfix 404 and the Semogue Caravela and they are both good brushes.The Vulfix 404 maybe has around 10% of badger hair and its pure,however its a great brush for its price.The Caravela was a limited edition and has 50% of badger hair (finest badger) and a bigger knot,24 mm,so its more densely packed.

For the price of the 404 I would go for it with no hesitation,specially if you are a facelatherer.

Hi

I will recommend the Omega 11047 Mixed Badger/Boar Loft - Mighty Midget shaving brush, especially a good choice if you're a face lather.

Take care, Mike

Hi Matt

No question it's a great little brush, but unfortunately for me I've discovered via that brush that I'm allergic to boar hair...

For a fun little DIY project I think I'm going to re-knot it with a "The Golden Nib" badger hair knot.

Take care, Mike
