So maybe the title got your attention!
I just bought a Semogue OC 2 band badger, a Semogue 2000 (boar), and a Muhle synthetic Silvertip. I originally was only going to purchase the SOC - seemed like a good gateway 2 band brush and had really good reviews. At one point someone suggested a SOC boar and since I love my 1305 I decided to think about a new boar as well. In the end I decided on the 2000 because reviewers seemed to suggest that the 2000 was better for bowl lathering which I do 99% of the time. Lastly, the Muhle synthetic was something I've wanted to try out of pure curiosity. In opted for the smallest size knowing that if I like it I can always purchase a larger brush and sell the 21mm sized knot on BST.
Any thoughts, comments, opinions on these? I'm still waiting to purchase another "high-end" brush...I have my eye on a Polo 8, but decided to try some more modestly priced brushes this time around.
