    Close shave, but 2 nicks. I do not really like the Chromas, they give me a close shave, but also produce nicks on a regular basis. I am going to try the feathers next, and then probably back to Astra. So far, they have given me the most comfortable shaves.

    First shave with La Toya stick. A little messy on the fingertips but excellent shave. Floid Amber just seemed to match so well with the La Toya scent.

    This is a picture I took when I bought the goods from Portugal, which coincidentally was my shave last night.

    Can anyone tell me if this is a Semogue 1520 brush? It dind't have a model number, I bought it from La Vida Portuguesa. It's branded Semogue with a sticker but the top half isn't painted white like the 1520 pictures I see online. (They seem to be marked excelsior which could be why the difference)

    Hi,

    That is a Semogue 1530, with mixed boar/badger hair. Quite a stiff fellow, the boar is one of the Semogue's stiffest and the badger is "pure".
