So here's the deal. In order to keep any ad's that may develop with my new foray into wet shaving under control, SWMBO and I came upon an agreement. Her weakness happens to be Coach handbags, so we made a deal that I get to add a brush to my collection each time she buys a new bag. Last night was new years eve, so my fiance obviously just had to have a new bag to go out with. That's fine with me, since it means a new brush is coming my way. I'm currently using an Edwin Jagger BBB which is my only brush at this time. I would like to begin building a rotation and I believe that the next logical step would be a quality boar brush. I keep a short beard and only shave my neck and mustache so I don't want a particularly large brush. The EJ has a 21mm knot and a 53mm loft which seems comfortable to me in my very limited experience. I currently bowl lather although this is not a practice that is set in stone for me at this time. I would love to have a brush that has enough backbone to work well primarily with soaps, yet I still want something that is soft on the face. I'm currently looking at a Semogue 1305 and and the Omega 10275, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Price is not a concern for me since even the most expensive boar brush is still very cheap when compared to the bag she just bought. Thanks in advance.
