Ultimate brush for hard soaps. Its much easier to lather hard soaps then my silver tip brush. The brush has good backbone but isn't harsh at all. (i find my silver tip more scrubby when face lathering)
The 1800 is the second boar brush in my arsenal and it's one of my favorite brushes. It was very quick to break in and is in my weekly rotation of brushes. I just love the ease with which it lathers up cream either in a mug or on the face, and provides more than enough quality lather for 3 passes at least. Definitely one to keep and it gets regular use.
I have a wee scot a Semogue 1470 and a 620 and I can honestly say that this brush out performs them all. Lathers up a Speick soap stick in seconds.
I have been using this brush alongside a Semogue Owners Clubs 2 band silvertip that somebody with more money than me bought me for my birthday. Both are superlatively good, and if the latter is better than the former it isn't by a margin of anything like as much as £50. The 1800 lathers soap as quickly and almost as thoroughly. It applies it to the face as well as its tasty brother it is a bargain.
