Right Gents, Get yer Brushes oot for the boys !
I'm sure they have been breeding! Look at the baby one!
Not the best photo in the world, I don't use the bottom row brushes.
Takes me ages to pick...
The bottom 2 are Maseto 26mm knots and will be going on BST when I get around to it. I am enjoying my Semogue SOC's too much to bother with anything else.
The 4th on the right in the top row is a Vie Long 2 band set in an Erasmic handle sprayed black. Lovely knot and the handle is almost as good as the SOC ones to hold, but not as well made.
I have decided 24mm is the sweet spot for me.
I want to have a Meseto one in my collection (2nd one)
That’s my humble collection, I see some beautiful brushes on this forum.
That's a great looking vintage boar you have there. P.
Some great looking collections
Keep em coming
The light's bad for a group pic but this is my favourite overall.
It lathers everything put before it, feels good in the hand and it's the best sized boar knot I've found so far, of course ymmv.
The humble Omega 11137
P.S. it's quite happy with the dodgy pic, see what I mean about humble?
Here’s my rotation. Quite pleased with the collection. Noticably fewer boars than average I see.
...terrific collection...all of the handles look superb...
amazing mate. Some stunning brushes there
Rubberset 440s & 400 style handles:
I don't normally like barbershop handles but I'll definitely make an exception for that Ever-Ready.
Here's my small collection of brushes.
My faves are the Shavemac D01 2 band flat top and the Chubby 3 Manchurian. I have a preference for dense, scrubby brushes - but I also enjoy the variety of being able to choose very different knots depending on my mood.
I only have 1 synthetic (for travel), as synthetics just don't seem to cut it in regards to face feel for me.
I would love to try a Paladin or Morris & Forndran brush in the future.
Horse hair brushes:
Newest acquisition from A.P Shave Co on Etsy.
Wow, talk about make a guy feel inferior! I only have three brushes, a mid quality best badger from Executive shaving that i use for creams, and a cheap boar by Omega that i use for hard soaps, then there is a cheap Omega synthetic that lives in my travel wash kit and hence rarely sees the light of day.
Oddly seeing all theses lovely brushes on here (and there are some stunners) i'm still perfectly happy with the ones i have and have no desire to get any more
