SOC w/ Omega soap.
Does anyone else feel that boar brushes work best with soft soaps? I always get better results with them than hard soaps, but alas I rarely use my SOS so its most likely at least partially technique.

For most of November, its been my custom Eagle. I'm doing the Cade challenge and trying my best to stick to the same soap and brush every day.

My problems is getting badger brushes to work well with hard soaps but they work fine with soft soaps and creams.
Today I used my Semogue SOC with the Cade soap!

The Iberian Alliance: Semogue 830 + La Toja Sensitive
Today was Semogue 830 with MWF. First time using this brush with the fat...wow
Went to the boar this morning . . . Semogue 1305 to try to tear up the last of the Cade I used in the challenge. Yes, that's the bottom of an Old Spice mug! Still a few days left after using it about 25 days in November . . . and it started the challenge with maybe a quarter puck left. The puck is finally gone, those chips are outer trimmings cut to fit it in there and hold it in place a year ago.
Semogue 2000 with Cella. Still trying to break this one in as it's only about two weeks old, but plenty soft already. At least the stink is almost gone.
somogue 620, used with tabac, the 620 finally broke in about a week or so ago and i am still celebrating with it. Don't know why but i had an unusually close and comfortable shave to boot.
