My first Semogue

Post by Z-2 »

I am really impressed. On 31st December last year I've got my first Semogue Torga C3 boar brush. As I understand knot is similar (or same) like Semogue 620, just different handle.

I wanted from long time brush from this brand, so, I am more than happy :)


I also got a Captain's choice ceramic bowl. I never used bowl till now (15 years of face lathering), but I am impressed of it. Unfortunately I get better lather with gels, than soaps. Any thoughts?

Z-2, congratulations on the new Semogue brush! My favorite boar and badger brushes have come from this company.

I'm not sure what to tell you about shaving soaps versus gel. It could depend upon the soap or your lathering technique, but the lather in your photo looks good. I can't really determine the quality of your lather without feeling it, however. It could also be that gels simply work best for you. In whatever case, I would suggest that you use whatever gives you the greatest shaving pleasure.
