The Semogue 2000 has been hailed as one of the greatest boar shaving brushes in current production. Handmade in Portugal it is densely packed enabling copious amounts of lather to be made for multiple passes. Overall it is a very high quality brush.

After breaking the brush in for 24 hours in a cup of water in the fridge (found that tip on YouTube) it makes a great lather with hard soap, much better than my badger brush. The handle is also nice and big which helps using the shaving mug. However it's too big to fit in my plastic Bluebeard brush holder. The price is reasonable. The knot is nice and big as well.
great Brush!! good handle, perfect as usual with Semogue..
I've been using badger brushes for years and wanted to try boar. this is a nice brush with plenty of bristles and the wooden handle gives a good grip. i don't think it lathers quite as good as my badger brushes but at this price you cant complain.
Build quality & craftsmanship is unparalleled amongst boar brushes. Superb look and feel. Excellent quality boar bristles. Exceptional. However, beware of the Muhle "universal" razor & brush stand as the knot is a touch too big for it.
I had always wanted to try this brush being a fan of Semogue brushes and finally took the plunge. This brush turned out to be a huge surprise as I was thinking it might be a bit too big for face lathering but how wrong I was. I have only had it a short time but it is breaking in beautifully. The backbone of this brush makes it perfect for face lathering this is a beautiful brush.
I´m amazed with the qualities of this brush, totally recommended.
Having bought my Semogue a couple of months ago I can say it is one of the best brushes I own. The 2000 is a nice addition to my collection and worth every cent.
