It seems that the Italian forum "Il Rasoio" wanted to have their LE brush , like the Caravela , or the brush made for this forum , and they certainly have archived it.

This "Il Rasoio" shaving brush has the same measures that the Semogue made for The Shave Nook , with a 22 mm knot and a 52 mm loft , with the blend of finest badger hair mixed with premium 90% tops boar hair.

The handle , of course , ist another vintage one , rescued for their project.

Its now available on the Vintage Scent page , but its not avaialable (yet) for everyone , until all members from that forum get their brush.However , something is telling me that the 100 units wont be only sold for members of that forum (like it happened with the Caravela) and we will have a change to get one.

Well , another LE brush on these crazy days of SE , LE , old stock and so on...

I tried ordering the brush last weekend, but the order got canceled with the message that this brush is only for members of Il Rasoio. Understandable of course, but it would be better if Vintage Scent would find another way of selling these LE brushes when a brush is intended for members of a specific forum only.
Oh well, I still got the SE coming my way Biggrin

I kind of want to get my hands on one too, those knots are just awesome for the money. Besides, it would look cool next to my TSN brush!

Bruno informed me that the 'Il Rasoio' brushes have been designated exclusively for members of that forum only.

I am a member of Il Rasoio Forum and I am waiting for the brush. It is great for all of us to see that this brush is appreciated, one of the reasons that pushed us in the Semogue direction was indeed the beautiful TSN LE.

As far as I know, there is a concrete chance that a few brushes will be available once the Italian forum members are served, I hope some of you will be able to put their hands on one....good luck!

I thought I would give it a try and place an order for a "Il Rasoio" last night. I just received an "Order Shipped" email 15 minutes ago.

Order now while you can! Best!

Ordered one as well.
I was looking for a Semogue TSN LE and this is almost similar.

The only difference between this brush and the SOC 2012 is that the latter has a 2mm denser knot and the black acrylic handle?

Mine was shipped today. A friend who is member at Il Rasoio and at the German forum Gut Rasiert has reserved one for me when they started to plan it.

I like the small knot of the TSN LE more than the larger knot of my Caravela.

Gino, the forum mod who worked with me for this project has approved to open the sale now to everyone, so the remaining 20 brushes can be sold to whomever wants to get one and doesn't need to be a member of that particular forum.
