Like all omega products first class and the price is amazing. Love fendrihan. Fast service and comes wrapped up beautifully.
Great price and well made. Yes it is a big brush but I love that. It works well with the Omega Eucalyptus Soft Shaving soap and the Proraso soaps. Highly recommended. Fendrihan is always fast, reliable, and simply the best!
After a few shaves, you'll break in this brush and it will be your go-to for your shaves. I bit stiffer, but holds together quite well (as in, no bristles lost).
I have always used a badger brush but after I saw comments on the advantages of using a boar brush with hard soaps I thought I would try one. After reading reviews of boar brushes, I decided on the Omega 49. It is big and does take a number of shaves to break-in, but the end result is a modestly priced lather machine. I highly recommend this brush to anyone using a hard soap.
Provides a great lather either with a soap or cream. but just to big.
