Great looking family. I have recently bought my first Semogue a 1460, I am very impressed with it. I see additional Semogue joining my den.

Wow, Emanuel, that's a helluva gathering of Semogues! And a masterful photo to present them!

Since I use Semogue brushes almost exclusively, I can't help but be impressed!

I bought a lot of famous brushes before I got my first Semogue (a 2015) and realized that I had finally found what I had been looking for all along.

My badger favorites: 2040, 2015, and 730.
(I even purchased a back-up 2015 back in 2008, because I was so impressed with my first one!)

My boar favorites: 1305, 830, and 2000.
(I keep a 1305 back-up, as well.)

I also have the 740 (pure badger) and 750 (best badger).

I once had the 2008 LE and the 2009 LE, but I found that the traditional models did the magic for me.

That's a great collection of brushes! I've had my eye on the 1305 for a long time, I didn't realize that they changed the handle.

Murray has been one of the "pioneers" in purchasing Semogue brushes from me back in 2008. Is has been that long? Biggrin

The second picture of where they are all together makes me chuckle. Almost looks like a weird, furry animal.

Thank you all for your words, gentlemen! I truly appreciate them.Blush

Boars: the 1305, 1550, 208 and the LE2009
Badgers: LE2010 and SOC 2-band

But this can easily change! Biggrin

For me, right now, and If I had to choose only one, I think that the LE2010 is the best Semogue ever made. Semogue should have something like this on their current portfolio.
But the Horn Handle Silvertip is a recent acquisition - and it can make me change my mind.

Price-wise: the 1305 if you bowl-lather, the 1438 if you face-lather.
But if you prefer badgers, money is no problem and want an excellent all-rounder, get a SOC 2-band - I think that every wet-shaver should have one, at least at some point.

Thank you very much for the LE2008, it has definitely found a new home!Aaaaa

The 1305 "old style" is somewhat old, maybe from the 80's or 90's, way before Semogue had hit the interwebs... the handle was hand-carved by an artisan that passed away (and not lathe-turned, like the current model), hence the "simple" form...
The hair of this brush is somewhat different than the current one - it is more thin and with less backbone.

Emanuel, you know about tribbles?!

Anyway, I'm glad to see that the 2008LE looks so happy as part of your herd! Tongue

Back in 2008, I wondered what it would take to get people in the shaving forums who were so hooked on certain brands to discover Semogue. Though my favorites are among the traditional models, I think that Senhor Gomes' willingness to explore new products through the LE and SOC brushes, which had broader appeal among face-latherers in particular, made a mighty contribution to the popularity of the brand. So, I tip my hat to Semogue.
