This is the Gold Standard of all synthetic brushes & the price reflects it. Getting harder to obtain. You can buy a Best badger hair brush for the price of this but if you have any moral objections to natural bristle brushes (or any other objections) this is a high quality alternative. Be aware. This a VERY soft brush & works better with creams than soaps. It will produce a good lather with soaps but you will have to work harder at it.
I originally bought this brush because I was so enamored with the handle. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it has an excellent knot of fibres and is a great performer.
Like most synthetics, this brush creates fantastic lather with ease. It has a nice balance of features. Like all Omega brushes I've tried, it is well made and should last a good while.
I have used a lot of different synthetic brushes. Many didn't make the cut and were sold or given away. While not my absolute favorite, the Omega HI-Brush has earned a permanent spot in my rotation.
In terms of synthetic bushes, The Mühle silvertip fibre bushes and the Frank Shaving PUR-Tech brushes are at the top of my list because of they have dense knots and a bit more backbone than most synthetics. This brush is tied for 3rd place with the Plisson. Interestingly, I like the Plisson and the Hi-brush equally for opposite reasons. Most synthetics are soft but the Plisson is insanely soft...
Besides the unique cool look, this brush is a great performer. While there are many good synthetics, this one is the best of my four and I enjoy using it the most. The others are a Parker, a GBS, and a cheaper Omega. Unlike the others, the writing has remained on the brush without wearing off and it helps facilitate the making of lather on a much better scale. Still looks brand new after months of daily use.
One thing to consider is the diameter of the handle. It's just under 1.5" and might not fit in some stands.
