Your brushes look very good, But what they are trying to tell you is you need to PM forum members and send some free brushes so they can trial them and write a review that way you might get sales, i hope this helps.

I have a 38c barberpole and i Use Gillette super thins,Gillette 7 O'clock platinum/ Russian and Indian, Gillette Bleue Extra, Red personna. But that's what suits my face, the best thing to do is get a sample blade pack and work your way though till you find the blades you like as for ASB's the world...

The only problem with semogue seems to be with the varnish mine has started cracking, I know a member of another forum did a refurb on his 2000 i.e. re-stained and varnished it looks better than when he bought it.
