Hi. I also want to buy an Omega 10005 brush. I like the shape of the wooden handle. But I wonder how practical it is. I had an Omega 11137 brush with a wooden handle. And over time, a soap coating forms on it, which looks ugly and cannot be removed. This is clearly visible in the photo in message 549.
I really liked the shape of the handle and it felt good in the hand, but it had swollen up a tad during breakin so I broke the knot free and put it in a resin handle. No more worries.
