    A fantastic brush, good size, is breaking in very nicely, lathers incredibly well, nice mix of backbone and softness. This will put many of my way more expensive badger brushes into retirement. Thank you also for the great deal of personal consultation, you are a very good team.

    One of my favorite brushes, and also one of my cheapest. Once broken in it lathers wonderfully and loses it’s boar scent quickly. Highly recommend for a first brush or a fiftieth.

    Great brush! Plenty of backbone, soft tips that are getting softer with every shave. Longer, which increases your options for bowls or mugs. Great brush to add to the rotation for a minimal price.

    Very nice brush. Whips up a nice lather in no time, and hold plenty for subsequent passes.

    Great brush. Bristles are long, handle is thick and has a good heft to it. Easy to grasp for arthritic hands!

    Went up from an Omega 13564, what a difference! I love this brush. Even the first time using it was fantastic. Can’t wait till it’s completely broken in.

    This is my first shaving brush, ever. I am new to the DE shaving style and I am very happy with this brush! It is a fairly large brush. I love that though, since I use it for my legs. I chose a boar over badger because I wanted something a little more exfoliating and this brush has been perfect! There was a little animal odor at first but what else would you expect animal hair to smell like? In no time that odor is replaced with the scent of your soap. I have been lathering with it every day since I got it at the beginning of this week and already, it has stopped shedding. I am so pleased with the service here. Casie is prompt and friendly in her responses and just so helpful! I will certainly be doing more business with Maggard in the future!

    Omega 10049 Professional Boar Hair shaving Brush is another beauty from Omega. At an extremely low price and incredible lather-ability beyond expectations this is a great brush.

    An excellent brush for the money. Good backbone and is breaking in nicely.

    The only thing to notice is that this is a decently large brush, and as I have a smaller face, it’s quite a bit more than I need.

    Bottom line is that this is an excellent value for a great product!

    I just got this brush in and have used it twice. It already feels great and whips up a good lather. I would suggest this brush to anyone looking for a nice sized boar brush. i only lost one hair in the first two shaves. Also would like to say i have been ordering all my shaving needs from Maggard’s and the customer service simply cannot be beat. I had one small issue with one order and i emailed them late in the afternoon to let them know expected to hear from them the next day but i got an email response within a couple minutes and the issue was resolved. Top notch Products and service.

    I ordered this after reading reviews in all the forums I expected it to be a huge smelly scratchy brush . well I was willing to shampoo and break it in but I was surprised not sure if I got a gem …no smell soft at the tips and firm. It is a little bigger than my badger but not that big after a good rinse of hot water I busted out the fat quick thick lather took half as long to load the brush and I found its stiffness perfect I found it gave me more control came quick and perfect best ten bucks I have spent!

    I’ve had this brush for over a year now and it has been the absolute best brush I’ve ever bought. It has out performed and out lasted many brushes including some of the high end brushes that I’ve bought over the past couple years. Knowing what I know now, I would’ve bought this brush before I bought any of the high end brushes that I’ve bought in the past.

    I am very new to wet shaving and up until now I have been using a synthetic brush. I bought the Omega 10066 and Omega 10049 because I read so many good reviews about Omega Boar Hair brushes.
    My first impression was how much the Boar Hair brushes stunk. I was thinking maybe I should have just stuck with the synthetic.
    Nonetheless, I “broke it in” by following the instructions offered by Nick Shaves in his video. Next I decided that I really need to give it a try. I used the 10049 first and WOW! It lathers much, much better than the synthetic and I know it will only get better as it gets broken in through use. I made a great choice with the brushes and by shopping with Maggard Razors.

    This is a great brush, wait until it’s broken in and you get an awesome lather. I face lather and this has been great.
    As always, Maggard Razors service is OUTSTANDING

    For this price, the performance of this brush is definitely 5*. I soak this for 10 minutes before the shave in warm water, the lather it gives is great. Works fine with both cream as well as soap.
