On behalf of Shawn (Sullybob) and myself I would like to welcome you all to the newest instalment in our Brush Chronicles Series. Over the next two weeks we will be leading a discussion on the Omega Pro 10049 but any thoughts, photos and questions regarding other Omega brushes are also very welcome.
Up until recently, I will freely admit that I knew more about these Omegas
than these Omegas
but since purchasing my Omega 49 about a month ago, I have set about breaking it in and getting to know her in order to be able to bring you this Edition of the Chronicles. There are already a number of B+B Reviews of this brush and hopefully some of our other owners will chime in with thoughts to add to the fun here.
After following the standard advice- washing, lathering, soaking and drying for about 10 days, I put my Omega to the test and she proved to be a very effective shaving tool. Of course a new boar brush doesn't hold as much water as one of my badger brushes, but a little adjustment in technique allowed me to make plenty of wonderful lather and the brush appears to be softening and improving as we go along.
This morning's shave was great and myself and Shawn are really looking forward to putting this brush through it's paces, answering questions, adding more photos and thoughts and having lots of fun during these two weeks.
Continuing the break-in process (tips splitting and the brush is holding more water)
