Post those Semogue den shots folks. Some have already received their 2011 additions, but lets see what they have been added to!

I'll start it out with my six lovelies- the 1800, 09' LE, cherry handled SOC, 2010 Cutsom Boar, Caravela, and 1460.

My Semogue 2011 LE Finest Badger 1 will find these 4 cousins waiting for it.


Me too!

AND then I'm DONE! No more brushes, none, never, nohow, noway.....
Hello everybody, my new Semogue LE 2011 serial No 13 size 2 in Finest badger arrived on the 19th November 2011.

If looks could kill. In a word beautiful, the handle material is Black faux Marble with grey vein's handle is very ergonomic and the Loft height @ 52mm with a Knot Dia of 25mm is spot on. Lovely soft tip's but with plenty of backbone.

With regards to the new Semogue logo, I love them both. The old " Excelsior Texugo " & the new more modern " Semogue Portugal "

Jury is still out either I use or display.

Wow, an open invitation to post up your Semogue dens and only two pictures?? Let's see those Boss Hogs people!
If you insist :001_smile
I know - I have a thing for Semogue brushes :001_wub:)

Thats a great setup.. and what a great way for everyone to see the differences in brushes along the line (even more than superior does - between lines). I wish vintage scent would does this..
Fantastic collection Søren. So which is your favorite? Also, have you had a chance to compare the 2011 Badgers to each other?

As badger and boar has different characteristics I don't compare them up against each other.

So from the badger line my favourite is without question the SOC 2-band - followed by the 2010 LE.
From the boar line it is a close call between the SOC or the 2009 LE. It pretty much comes down to my mood and the time I've got for a shave, as the 2009 LE does have a large knot so it takes longer to load the brush and whip up the lather, but on the other hand, the hairs in that knot - oh my :001_wub:

I have yet the 2011 badgers in front of me, I had a go with the 2011 LE bristle 1 today. I'll use the bristle 2 tomorrow and then the badgers, so I'm having quite an interesting week ahead of me :biggrin1:
Here's my Semogue lineup.
First pic is boars on front row, second pic has the badgers upfront.

Sadly the 1470 and a SOC are missing as they are lent to friends.
Boars and badgers are nice in balance if I do a fast count; I have now six of each.
I currently own a 620 and a 2010 Custom Boar. The 620 is the greatest brush I have ever used by the way. I fell in love with it on first lather. :001_wub: I have a 2011 Finest 1 on the way. After seeing these photos, I am strongly considering selling off all of my other brushes and only owning Semogues. :001_smile
Søren, that is an amazing collection!

Wim, you aren't too far behind!

Thanks for the great pics gentlemen!

Yes, I noticed.

Missing a critical Caravela - I was too stupid to notice how beautiful it actually is.
And we both seem to miss the blue limited, I see.

Well, there's always room for improvement :001_tongu
