An excellent brush, lots of backbone- perfect for triple milled soaps, nice size about medium. Beds in quickly with the bristle ends splitting making it soft and assisting water retention, I didnt do anything special just use it. I really like this brush, nothing bad to say.

I had heard that boar brushes could be better than badger brushes for use with hard soaps, and as the Semogue 1305 was often highly recommend I thought I would give it a try. I did have some reservations as a good badger brush can be quite expensive, whilst boar brushes (including the 1305) are comparatively very cheep.

On initially trying the Semogue 1305 I was worried that the old adage that "you get what you pay for" applied to this boar brush, because although it really did load well from a hard soap, it was terrible at bowl lathering, producing hardly any lather at all. I tried a couple more attempts at bowl lathering, even trying softer soaps, but each time it was the same poor performance. Then one night I was in a hurry and decided to try face lathering with it ... what a difference !! Whilst I had OK results face lathering with a badger brush, the Semogue 1305 boar brush really did whip up an excellent lather.

My next concern came when I began to notice that I was getting a fair number of stray bristles on the 1305, and then noticed that a lot of bristles were developing split ends. Initially I saw this as a fault, and again put it down to a sign of cheapness. However a quick search on the internet confirmed that neither was a fault, but in fact very desirable in boar brushes in order to develop softness at the end, whilst keeping the core stiffness.

My Semogue 1305 is now well on it's way to being "broken in", it is settling into it's new shape and is fantastically soft whilst retaining a good amount of stiffness.

Once you give it time to break-in, the Semogue 1305 is a really great brush, that shows that you don't always have to pay a lot for good products.

This brush is very high quality, dense bristles, hand-made. There's a break-in period, so be patient, it's worth it! You can make a tremendous amount of lather with this brush!

Bought as xmas gift, met all expectations, well balanced, good application, no loss of bristles so far. Only drawback - handle chips easily.

Better than any badger brush! 30 Dec 2013
By RelicT - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I started wet shaving over 40 years ago. All my brushes have been nothing but badgers: Best, Super Silvertips, etc... And thought my Simpson Commodore X3 Best Badger was as good as anyone could get. Then after reading that more and more badger users that have been trying out boars, then becoming boar converts. The two top boar brushes were the Omega Pro 48 and Semogue 1305. So out of curiosity I decided to give to try and went with the 1305. I keep Cella Crema and Mitchells Wool Fat in rotation. Let me tell you, this brush will build a lather much faster than any badger. And has still not shed one hair yet! I've put away all my badgers. The Semogue 1305 is now the only brush I use. I will not waste my money on another badger. The 1305 without a doubt the best brush I've ever used! For the price, you simply owe it yourself to give it a try.

Excellent boar brush 27 Feb 2012
By A. Rumack - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful boar brush. Badger is softer but give this brush time and with regular use the tips will split and become nice and soft while retaining the strong backbone typical of boar brushes. Works especially well with soft soaps and regular shaving soap. Great brush all around.

Perfect fit 30 Jan 2014
By S. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
After trying out an Omega, I'm very impressed with the quality of this brush. The handle is fantastic and the proportions are ideal for me. The hair is also very soft and started to break in after the first use. It also barely had any scent. I'm fairly certain this brush is given more care during construction than other boars. The 1305 is also one of the most popular Semogue's because it uses their "premium" grade boar hair (I did plenty of research), and I believe I made the right choice after reviewing all the models. The difference is very noticeable. If you don't care for the handle, the 830 is this exact knot in acrylic.

Great brush... 17 April 2013
By James Laurita III - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
So far this brush has been great for me. It does a great job of producing lather easily and is softer than my other boar brush, but not so much that it feels as soft as a badger brush. I've been very happy with it and haven't had any chipping of any of the paint.

Be patient 7 Mar 2012
By William - Published on Amazon.com
This was my first boar brush. If you're used to badger brushes, it takes some getting used to, as the bristles are much stiffer and hold water much differently. It takes a pretty good breaking in period (20 or so uses), but after that it begins to work really well.
