I'm surprised this brush hasn't been discussed in this forum yet, but after searching briefly I guess it is up to me to do the honors. Semogue has a recent history of manufacturing some excellent two-band limited edition brushes, starting with the 2013 horn handled beauties. I unfortunately missed out on last years limited black and white handle LE, but this butterscotch version has relieved any sadness that remained. [align=center][/align] This brush is phenomenal in all aspects. Although I am not a fan of most modern butterscotch iterations, this one included, the ergonomics of the handle and the well executed engraving help me move past that nitpick. The knot is as good as any I have ever tried from Semogue, including the LE Horn brush from a few years back, providing firm backbone combined with very soft tips. I was pretty bummed to miss out on the 2015 LE, but this more than makes up for it.
