I am very surprised, I have only used it 4 times but it is very good. Little to no smell. if there was any it was gone after the 2nd shave. I have been using tabac and it loads up much faster than my silver tip from Art of shaving (yea i know ) anyway I shave my head as well as my face and this hold a ton of lather. I just cant say enough. I love the handle it is perfect, I have much more control than with the small handled badger. I also bowl lather fyi. I have oily skin and this helps exfoliate my skin better than the badger. If you shave you head as well i highly recommend this because of the mass amount of lather it holds. may buy another one to leave at my other apartment. no one has posted a size of this and I hope these picture help.
A boar hair brush by Omega is a must own for every wet shaver. Yes, if you walk into an Art of Shaving and feel one of their $70 badger brushes, it will feel amazingly soft. It will be softer than this brush out of the box. But if you buy an Omega Boar Hair Brush (I got the white one of this series) and use it even a couple times, I promise you, it will begin to become as soft as any badger brush you can find. Already my Omega is softer on my face than my badger.
Ok, so that's not very convincing. Why buy something that will become as soft as another product is normally? Because that's where the similarities end. The badger brush won't get any softer than it is out of box, this one will get softer and softer. This brush will remain stiff, much stiffer than badger, even as it's soft. That means that the lather you work up, especially from soaps, will be richer and creamier than a badger. You will also be able to create more lather with less soap. The knot on this model is...
I wish I bought this years ago. My only experiences with boar brushes were the cheap VDH brushes which are garbage. I've primarily been using the Tweezerman badger brush which has served me well the last 4 years or so but is starting to show its age. I have two other higher end badger brushes but they are super soft and just feel weird to me. They are great for lathering creams but don't do so well with soaps. This brush is a nice in-between. I assumed it was going to be stiff and stink but it is surprisingly soft at the tips but just stiff enough to not collapse under pressure. It lathers creams and soaps well though I sometimes need to use more product to have enough lather for a complete shave. The handle is really wide and won't fit in any of my various brush stands so I make a point to try and shake out as much water as I can before letting it fully dry in the up position. I am a little concerned about the longevity of this brush. I've only used it about 10 times...
