A new model direct from the Semogue factory. This is a stylish brush featuring a black and transparent acrylic handle. The Semogue 620 is great for both lathering soaps and creams.

This is a great small brush that works great for face lathering (I don't do bowl lathering so can't comment on that). It has a nice backbone or "stiffness" to it unlike some badger brushes. I used this brush for about a month but dropped it favour of the bigger Omega 48 which I liked better. I usually shave every 3-4 days (because I'm lazy) and due to my fast beard growth I have a fairly lengthy stubble by then. This small brush just doesn't create enough lather for the full 3-pass shave + a clean-up that I usually do. I'd have to re-lather for that. With the Omega 48 I have more than enough with just one lathering. The handle - although it looks very nice - is also a bit too small for my preference. The bigger handle of the Omega 48 gives a more comfortable grip for me. I also don't like how the boar hair has been dyed to look like badger hair. In my opinion it doesn't add to the aesthetic, and even if it did the dye started fading a bit after two weeks of use. While the brush is still nice value for the money (I paid 17.95€) it isn't fantastic value for a boar brush. If having a nice acrylic handle, a metal ring around the knot, and dyed boar hair isn't important to you there are cheaper options for a brush of this size. Bottom line: if you shave regularly, don't let your stubble grow for very long, and like how the brush looks it's a good choice.
Its a nice small brush with plenty of backbone.
Love it. Nice price. Great face latherer. Great on hard soaps. Great service from shaving.ie as usual...
Just buy it.. I agree with all the rest great brush, you won't be disappointed
YES! A great brush, firm and gives a great lather. Gets even better with daily use.
Great brush! I have bought the 620 and 1305 (couldn't decide on handle size and material). After two weeks of use, I can tell that I prefer the 620, because it has a better backbone and provides a very good lather out of the box. I still couldn't make a good lather with the 1305.
Got my brush today was like a kid opening ! Used this with Proraso white an the lather was exceptional. Smooth thick and creamy. Amazing fresh out the box.
If you have had difficulties lathering hard soaps (such as MWF) with a badger brush, you may want to give this little devil a try. After 5-10 shaves or so, it produces rich amounts of excellent lather. Soaps that I had given up on, using only my badger brush, have gone back into my rotation after I started using this brush. Much to my surprise, it works fine with creams as well.
Used this for 4 shaves now and it is breaking in nicely. It is a brush with a firm backbone & gives a nice scrubby sensation on the skin when face lathering. I find it works equally well when using shaving soaps and creams. The logo sticker is applied to the attractive acrylic handle. My personal preference is that I prefer a slightly longer handle. Overall it’s a great performing & good value brush. Buy one, you won’t be disappointed!
