Yes, make sure to like the Omega so you can sell me the Wee Scot so then I can have both!
EDIT: Just gave the Omega 21047 a shot with some Bluebeards, and I'm blown away! Super nice size and feel. I think I may be trying the O-Ring trick to make the handle feel a bit bigger. Overall, a very nice brush that is a pleasure to use, of course time will tell, but initial impressions are strong!!

Love it. Anyone got a pic of the travel tube it comes with?
With a few items for scale.
It's a nice, cheap tube. I'll certainly be using it, and it seems to fit a shave stick, or my other brush, a Commodore X2, quite nicely.
I may get in touch with Omega and try to score an extra 1 or 2.
PS 100 posts! : )
Well, this seems to fit the bill nicely. Once you start lathering, it certainly performs like a bigger brush. I'm quite please with it thus far. I should of used a cream that I'm more familiar with so I could compare it. Either this brush does a fantastic job, or bluebeards is genuinely magical. I'll lather up some bluebeards later with the commodore, and some prarosa or ogallala or something with the omega for comparison ;)
Got them both today. First I opened the mighty midget. The Might Midget is small, I wasn't expecting a brush this small. It sure looks nice I can't wait to lather it up. Then, I opened the Wee Scot. I'm amazed by the size of the wee scot. It is tiny in comparison to the midget. I've seen claims of it holding enough lather for 2 plus passes. By the looks of it I can't imagine it holding enough to do above my lip? Luckily I haven't shaved today so I will get to play with my new brushes. Btw, Westcoast's shipping was super quick again, and the Free shipping is a great touch. Now, off to play with my micro brushes.
Wow! I just whipped up some Mother Bear's to break in the Mighty one. This little thing is fantastic! For some reason I have had trouble with MB, but not with this little beauty! Color me impressed!

Tried the Midget today. It was pretty good, the brush is going right into the rotation. I did find it just a bit scritchy. Hopefully that will go away once it breaks in. This little brush gives a big lather especially for the price.
21047-- comes with a travel case ( tube), 11047-- the ^Same^ brush-- but comes Without the travel case.
I like the Wee Scot but my hand cramps up at times when I use it. I don't have this problem with the Omega (11047). Initially the Omega was a little scritchy but after a month of use it has broken in very nicely. The Omega holds an impressive amount of water and I get 3+ passes without reload. I am currently using Fitness soft soap and it works up very easily. I tried a triple milled soap last week and it also worked up easily. The Omega has just the right amount of backbone for me and good heft for a satisfying quality feel and puts lather exactly where you want it. At 1/3 the price of the Wee Scot the Omega (11047) is a no brainer and provides great value. I put in an order for two more as I have heard that Omega may discontinue it in the mixed badger/boar form. For me the Omega Mighty Midget is a big thumbs up and a brush I hope to live with for a long time! Big thumbs up and not much to knock this brush on. A great choice for anyone that prefers a small brush. It takes a little longer to wash out lather after use than a small boar but that is pretty much standard. It is a breeze to clean compared to a dense standard size brush.
WCS has it now!?! I would have ordered it with my Wee Scott if I had known...What is the number on this one? Not sure which it is since none of them are referred to as a "might midget."
I love my Wee Scot I just got. Funk is gone now and the brush is great (makes me want another Simpson brush heh).
Even though I have the boar version of the Mighty Midget, thanks to this thread I just had to order the badger/boar version. No, I don't think I have an AD. I'll now have a collection of four small brushes, the Wee Scot, and the Omega Bambino and now two Mighty midgets. I think I'll have to get some smaller hands.
Life is for the birds.
wow! Its only $13 on WCS. Once its back in stock I'm definitely going to pick it up. Going between my boar omega and the wee scot, I think the wee scot is a much "nicer" brush but the omega I beat up on and get great results!
If anyone would like to sell there Wee Scott to me , after tying this brush, I don't have one and I would like a travel brush . I hope this is not too inappropriate to suggest . It just seemed opportune .
you could be PM me?
