    I have been using this brush daily for about six weeks, so it may not have found its sweet spot yet, but this has become my favorite brush. It has great backbone and very soft tips, so the face feel is just what I was hoping it would be. It whips up lather very quickly and easily holds enough for three passes. The quality is really outstanding. I don’t think this brush has shed more than 3 or four hairs. Finally, I love the appearance and the feel of the wood handle. This is my second Semogue brush, (my first was the 610) but it will not be my last. I have become a huge fan of the brand.

    There are two top boar brushes in my rotation. They are the Semogue Owners Club, aka the SOC, and the Omega 21762, aka the Italian Flag or R&B brush.

    The SOC has amazing soft tips once it’s broken in, but it probably has the longest break in time of all boar brushes. Think at least 3 months of daily use. During the break in period the lather building can be troublesome. Don’t give up! You will be rewarded with the softest feeling brush.

    One thing to note is the base of the knot is very dense and thick and the top thins out to nice small soft tips. This causes the brush to have a huge bloom or spread. Not a bad thing, but just to keep in mind. My Omega boar brushes don’t do this. The tips of the brush will also have a matted hair look, this is also due to the tips being so small and soft. Don’t worry about this. Again this is different than my Omega boars which are much more orderly.

    The handle on the SOC is amazing and is really beautiful, has a nice wood grain pattern. Really good feel in the hand. Good heft to it too. This is not a cheap feeling boar brush. A little lighter and smaller than the Omega 21762, but just as good.

    So which brush do I like more? The SOC or the Omega 21762? I can’t say, I love both. Maybe the tips of the SOC are a bit softer but the lighter backbone of the Omega 21762 is a bit more luxurious. If you are a boar brush love, just get both. I am glad I did.

    I’ve had a 2000 for two and a half years. I use it regularly in a short rotioatn. It’s been a terrific brush and a great value in my opinion. I paid about twenty bucks then but I see it’s gone up so there must be good demand for them. Unfortunately the finish is about completely gone from the handle. It hasn’t cracked yet I figure when it does I can cut it loose and feel I had a good run with it. But I’ve learned my lesson, I’m sticking with artificial handles.

    Just got this brush as a gift along with another brush. I wanted a replacement for my Omega boar which I passed down to my son. This is the biggest brush I’ve ever seen. I don’t know how long it is going to take to break in. It’s pretty soft after two uses. What can I say that hasn’t been said. It lathers great. It holds a ton of lather. Plenty of backbone, and did I mention this thing is huge. Fantastic for head shaving which is what I use the boars for. Beautiful brush. I have to say I have had several boar brushes in my life. They don’t hold a candle to this one. This is a different level in quality.

    The SOC (Semogue Owner’s Club) Boar is likely the most “high end” boar brush available on the market, and might be a good option for a patient shaver looking to upgrade their boar.

    I purchased mine a little over a month ago and have lathered it every day (sometimes twice per day or more) in an effort to break in the bristles, and have a few things to share.

    Firstly, if you have not tried a Semogue brush, be aware that these things bloom to several times the size you might expect based on the knot. I have an Omega with identical knot size which is rather significantly smaller and more compact after many months of use: the SOC Boar feels in size something akin to a 30 mm in badger, so bear this in mind when considering a purchase.

    Secondly, the bristles are extremely dense in this brush, meaning both that it does require more product to function properly, and that the break-in process will be rather long. Pooling from what I have both experienced and heard of the break-in time, expect three months or so before it really hits its stride.

    Finally, the product is made to a much higher standard than other boar brushes I have tried. In the time I have used it, shedding has been at a minimum, the hair quality impeccable, and the construction is excellent. Compared this to my other boar, which has hairs breaking right along the dyed band (a big reason I have gravitated towards undyed in all my brushes), with the handle starting to crack near the top, and poor sealants leading to some limited bubbling within the plastic of the handle.

    Overall, definitely worth a try if you have a preference for larger brushes, have the patience to let the SOC come to its fruition, and want to get a high-end brush without breaking the bank.
