I hate you guys, stop putting smart stuff to buy up... Just bought mine with shipment to England
Only a question: I already have a couple of Omega boar brushes of about 24-25mm. knot so I would like to ask: anyone knows if there's any difference about the hair of this brush compared to other Omega boars appart from the knot size?
This is a custom knot (not just a production knot jammed into a fancy handle) with extra hair that was developed by a group of boar afficianados who tested prototypes before being satisfied. This brush is made entirely by Omega.
I test lathered it with Razorock XXX. It was... alright. Typical boar, could use some break in. Bowl lathered it on purpose for the rougher bowl bottom to soften the tips.
It's a nice brush, I didn't realize it's like, all blue and the upper black portion, at least to me just looks that way because the bottom of the knot is black. At least I think? It's in the bathroom and I didn't really closely inspect it.
John, The material issss... A hard plastic of some type. Feels the same as everything else, lol. I knocked on it with my knuckles a bit and it's quite solid, and.. made the same noise as a Rooney? lol. I really am not the best at describing it since I don't know the actual name for whatever material it is being used.
