Customer Reviews

The most affordable 90% Tops Boar Brush that I know of. Admittedly, I stumbled on this brush. I had some shopping points burning a hole in my pocket and decided that I needed a new boar shaving brush. My Semogue 1520 Superior Boar Bristle Shaving Brush (with its painted wooden handle) developed a chip in said paint. So, I decided to replace it with the 830.Wow! What a happy surprise! This brush is head and shoulders above the 1520 in both quality of boar bristle and handle durability! It's also better than the 1800 in quality of brush hair/bristle.Being very easy to break in, the brush provides a super soft face lathering experience! The 90% Tops Boars bristles make all the difference. if you don't mind a shorter, more compact brush handle, then this is the one to get.With a shorter handle, reaching down into a deeper mug is difficult. But shallower pucks and shaving bowls are no problem.With a larger handle, expect to pay close to three times as much for a 90% tops Boar Brush. 5After trying this, I'm not a fan of boar hair. I was hoping I could be as enthusiastic about this brush as so many others have been, but after using it daily for several weeks, I can't recommend it. I bought this specifically to use with hard shaving soaps, and for that, it performed terribly. My inexpensive Colonel Conk badger brush does a much better job at building lather. I also have a more expensive badger brush that works wonderfully with any cream or soap. Not a great loss at less than twenty bucks, and still usable in a pinch. 2Once it breaks in, it's a very nice brush This is the only natural bristle brush I own. It took a while to break in. I didn't like it much at first. It shed too much, was a bit too small, and wow was it soap thirsty! After getting it broken in, I like it much more. It feels great on the skin, splays pretty easily, and just feels good to shave with.The price is fair, the performance is quite good, and it's a good value if you're looking for a nice boar brush. Just be prepared to use a bit more soap than a synthetic (a lot more at first), and a bit more water than with a synthetic. 4Boar Brushes have their place at the sink This is my first boar bristle brush. I have a few badger hair brushes which are very soft, but don't have the stiffness required to work up hard soap lathers. This is a beautifully old world crafted boar's bristle brush that is a pleasure to use. it has the stiffness I needed to work up hard soap lather and really work it into my whiskers. This Semogue 830 Premium Boar Bristle Shaving Brush is so nice I ordered its "big brother," the 1305. 5Amazing Brush, SofterThan the Escali Pure Badger and NO loose hairs in my bowl! This brush is excellent!! I am totally impressed with this. I am a recent convert to wet shaving and started with the most popular Escali Pure Badger brush for $12.99. It has worked pretty well but nothing special. I quickly became addicted to purchasing different creams and now on to soaps. I found the badger did not work as desired with some of the soaps like Arko so I ventured out to get a Boar brush. I went back and forth between this and the 1305 but I really liked the handle on the 830 so I went for it. Very happy I did.This brush is actually softer on my face than the Escali badger. It has enough bite to get into harder soaps but doesn't kill your face and whips up a great lather. The handle is very high quality and the brush has a nice weight to it. There is a slight smell when you get it wet. Nothing terrible but I have just been washing it with my Pinaud Clubman Shampoo and dish soap and that has helped considerably. I think I may try the method i have seen online of covering it in your favorite shaving cream and letting it dry that way overnight. Either way don't let the smell concern you it is minor!If you are looking for a good quality affordable brush get this now! 5Splayed too much after break-in After breaking it in, it was very good for awhile, particularly for triple-milled soaps. Soon after, though, it began splaying/spreading a bit too much. To counter that, you have to work hard to make more lather than you'd otherwise need to keep the hairs closer together. I'm guessing the knot could be a little denser. Combined with the fact that boars don't hold much water, I'd say It's okay. It's usable. I keep it in my rotation, but my badger brushes are far better. 3Great Brush Now I first must add my disclaimer of being a novice in DE wet shaving (one month) and this is my 2nd brush. First, out of the box there wasn't any strong odor or smell. The brush is well made with just two loose hair when I first washed it. I found a forum that described a break-in method to soften and deodorize the brush. Twenty-four hours, I shaved with the brush. No smell and just as soft as my badger brush, but a bit stiffer. The only difference noted was in less lather. Takes a little longer and not as rich, but also not so sloppy when applying on the face. This is due to it holding less water than a badger brush. I was better able to nicely "paint" the lather on my face. I expect the brush to only get softer once fully broken in. Overall I like the this brush better than my badger hair brush; although it is not a silver-tip. I guess I'll have to wait and see for that comparison. 5This is one of the best. I have six semogue brushes and about the ... I am a brush user and I prefer boar brushes. This is one of the best. I have six semogue brushes and about the same number of Omega boar brushes. I love them both, but there are differences. The Omegas do not tend to open or bloom their bristles as much as the Semogues. I tend to prefer that slightly. However, the Semogues, when broken in, produce incredible lather. The Semogue 830 is no exception. It has a beautiful, heavy solid handle, and nice soft bristles that are firm enough to produce great lather while also being soft to the face. All Semogues have good, sturdy handles. That isn't true with Omegas where the cheaper ones often have hollow, plastic handles. I can highly recommend any Semogue brush. They are very well made, don't shed many bristles, have great ability to produce lather, and they will last forever if handled properly. 5Great face latherer Great face latherer. Softest boar I've ever used. It needs a good 20+ shaves to break in. It does lose hairs alot. Also the hairs on the outside really bend outward after break in. The brush is not my favorite for bowl lathering as i holds all the lather in it and you won't see as much in the bowl. It is what makes it such an effective face latherer. Would have given more stars if it didn't lose hair every time. 3One of the best Boar Hair shave brushes on the Market. Great Boar hair shave Brush and for the price you can't go wrong. Its starting to lather up very good now, the break-in period was quicker than I thought it was going to take. The brush is not too stiff and yet not too soft like a Badger hair brush. Very Good shave brush, it only lost a small amount of Bristles during the first few times than it stopped. What I did to make it fit my shave stand was to file a grove on both sides of the flats of the handle 1/4" wide 1/8" deep and now it slides right into my shave stand. I think it looks better that way then the whole handle sticking up on the stand. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006EMKX00/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_0 5
