Product Description

This is the shaving brush preferred by Master Barbers in Italy.

Sports a chrome colored ABS handle and filled with high quality boar bristles.

Once broken-in, you’ll notice the tips of the bristles begin to split and become very soft but the brush will continue to provide plenty of backbone.

    This was my first brush. I still have it and use it sometimes. Including this morning. Mine tends to still lose hair after years of use, but it’s a big brush for sure and it won’t miss them. This produces a lot of lather, and is really good for a luxurious weekend shave, IMO. I will keep this brush as long as I keep shaving with a blade. I am retiring soon, and will have more time for those luxurious shaves. On the con side, the knot will come flying out of the handle as I shake it, if I don’t hold it in. Not a big deal to me at all.

    If you are a newbie and find difficult to choose a brush,just get a “48”.Armies of shavers around the world can’t be wrong!Easy to lather directly to face,a pleasure to handle and practically immortal,the only problem(?) is that you might need to lather twice if the monstrous knot decides to “swallow” the foam.

    I just got this recently and found it to be a bit of a weak contender. I’ll give it a of chance to break in, but with my Semogue 1800 (which is an excellent boar brush and cost $7 more) around, it’ll be hard to choose the Omega 48.

    If you’re only going to have 1 brush, this is a great choice! Inexpensive and very well made. Once broken in, tips are very soft and it lathers both soaps and creams great!. However, it is a very big brush and it can get a little messy. It’s a favorite of mine with Proraso. Makes me feel like I’m Tony Soprano, buy it and fu-get-about it!

    Omega 10048 100% Boar Bristle Shaving Brush Pro 48 is an excellent brush. Lathered up with Maggard’s Fougere today and made 5 passes. If you have not yet tried boar this is an inexpensive yet delightful way.
