Thread: Omega Silvertips question: 621 or 636

    Default Omega Silvertips question: 621 or 636

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to silvertip brushes. Which one of these two do you think is better (same price):

    The 636: http://www.italianbarber.com/omega-6...-shaving-brush

    or the 621: http://www.italianbarber.com/omega-6...-shaving-brush

    Thanks a lot

    Geometrically, the knots are virtually the same size - only 1mm difference in diameter and 3 mm difference in loft. I have a Lucretia Borgia, in artificial badger and the handle is really nice looking!
    I say get the 636! (I clicked wrong voting... need coffee!)

    636 looks "prettier" to me, so that would be my choice. Otherwise they are almost the same brush.

    I vote the 636
    The "bordeaux" with the "gold" is very attractive.

    My vote went to the 636. I have that same handle with a black badger knot. It's really pretty, you'll like it.

    I'll go with the 636...the name itself is already a winner....Lucretia Borgia, shorter loft and nicer handle.

    I loved the looks of the 636 that I bought one myself. Nice soft tips with just enough backbone to face lather if you really wanted to.

    I voted the 621 just 'cause I have the 636 and I'm interested in how the 621 works!
