    :

    This is a very balanced brush when you soak before shaving. Once broken in, it is softer than a Boar but still has a spine to it. The only downside is that it has a “barn-like” smell when you first wet it.

    Superb brush. One of my top 3 brushes. This 24mm horse-hair brush is softer than a bore brush, but firmer than a badger, with just the right amount of backbone. A sweet spot brush for me. Very good value for money.

    What can I say, the brush is an absolute monster. For a horse hair brush, the knot is very dense and whips up a lot of lather. I live in military quarters, which unfortuantely means I have very hard water. This brush still performs splendidly and has only shed on me once. Hard water tends to be very rough on brushes, so that is saying a lot. Quite funky at first, so I recommend shampooing and conditioning it with Mane ‘n Tail (it only makes sense). I do it about 5-7 times. Works for me. Heck, I do that with all my natural bristle brushes.

    I’ve had this brush for 2-3 months, and love it. It was a bit prickly at first, but after breaking in (6-8 weeks of daily use, for me) it became very smooth. It is great for face lathering, and only needs a slight shake after soaking. It shed quite a few hairs at first, but that may have been due to me soaking it above the knot, and possibly at too high a temperature. A little more vigilance has meant no more shedding in the past few weeks. My only complaint is that the acrylic handle seems prone to scratches, which are quite visible. Be careful of hitting it on the sides of your mug!

    I have had this brush for about 2-3 months, and have had a problem with it in that it is “pokey”, but reading other reviews, I think the problem is that I am pushing the brush when I should be “painting side to side” with it. I know when I go side to side, it is smooth as silk.

    Things I like about it: it holds a lot of water and or lather. Makes whipping up lather very easy. 2/ the handle is comfortable, 3/ the color and shape of the brush and handle are really good, and 4/ when I go side to side, the shave goes really well, and it is a pleasure to use. I only have a cheaper synthetic to compare it to, and each have their strong and weak points. The Horse hair is smoother side to side, and holds more water and lather; The synthetic is not pokey at all, and hold a fair but not a great amount of water and later. The Horse hair also looks better on the shelf, but the synthetic was a gift from a friend of the family. Such is life, no? Everything has its plus and minus.

    Brush is great for both soaps and creams. Holds water very well and makes a great lather. It is very soft on the face with only the slightest “scratch” (less than my pure Omega 6151). Nice change of pace between badger or boar kind of in the middle. If you’re looking for a horse hair brush, give this one a try. It’s a high quality brush easily worth 2x the price.

    One word of warning, mine was very “funky smelling” at first. However, the “funk” went away within a week with shampooing and lathering with a strong scented soap or cream. It’s now a favorite!

    I love my new Vie Long 12705 Horse Hair Brush!!! Soft out of the box, hairs dont bunch up like boar, they fall separately when you run your fingers through it. Love how it looks and love the size. Smell was very light and in a few uses will probably be gone completely. I have to decide which is my favorite now.
    Is it my Omega 11137, or my Semogue 2000, or my Omega pro 48, or my new Vie Long 12705?
    I have other brushes but those are my favorites.
    Also, the few times ive purchased through Maggard Razors have been wonderful. Very fast shipping!!!

    For the money, this brush can’t be beaten! It lathers brilliantly out of the box with no prep, and no smell unlike boar brushes. The handle is nice to handle, stubby with subtle scalloping in the corners, and the colour goes nicely with the colour of the horsehair.
    It will rival at least an entry level badger and better many of them – ten out of ten!

    Nice brush for the money, mine had no smell as other have complained about in shaving forums from horse hair. It is somewhat firm from the 35/65 blend of hair, nice square-ish, grooved handle which I like. I don’t think you get those split end like with boar when it breaks in and softens a bit. My guess this will stay the same in feel. Horse hair should never be circled/twirled, use a paint brush like stroke to apply soap/lather or you will break or mat twist the hair. After cleaning and dry, a light combing thru the outer layers helps. You should never smash horse hair ever, use the outer tips, a lighter touch. Unbeached is nice, I dislike any brush that is near the color of standard shaving soap. Other then having to use a different routine over boar I like this horse hair brush. Wished it came with cheap stand to travel with.

    2) No break in needed, ready to use immediately.
    3) Soft feel yet more durable than a badger
    Vie is a 10 of 10’s.

    I’ve used one of these for about two months and love it. It has a nice dense knot with good backbone. The handle is kind of chubby and feels good in the hand. The tips are pretty soft to start with, but after they’re broken in they feel like velvet. It has just a little bit of “scritch” to it if you press hard and swirl, but if you press lightly and go side to side it feels like a feather. I find that I really don’t need to pre-soak the brush before using; I just hold it under the water for a minute or so, shake it, and it’s good. Horse hair is definitely underrated. This brush is perfect for digging into soaps and face lathering. I’m not really into bowl lathering, so I can’t really comment on that.
