You know, it never fails. As soon as a person joins a members forum blog of any kind and tries to add some information for people that might benefit them, some clown with a middle school mentality has to post a bunch of adolescent, mindless, prattle in response to what a person posts.
Well, I am not one to listen or read such sarcastic manure.

I am outa here!
Well, that's a shame

Hang around a bit, and you'll realise it was only banter. . . . .

Personally, I don't have the patience for boar brushes. I want to be able to pick up a brush and use it. Besides - 'er indoors would go bananas if she found a shaving brush bathing in the fridge !

There are girly men amongst us who have very tender skin that may be severely damaged if something courser than a dandelion comes in contact with them. New brushes make them cry and run for mommy. So, they make every effort to completely crush anything that might be considered "backbone" in a new brush. Then they praise the poor frazzled stump as being the softest most amazing brush they have ever owned.
I think I might be one of those kind of men! My skin gets irritated by any soap which even vaguely has the slightest scent! The worst offender however was when I used a Silvertip badger brush, I think it was the very fine nature of the bristles. Never had such a problem with a boar though, irrespective of how new, broken, scrubby, prickly it might be. My favourite boars are the ones which have the thickest bristles, they are the ones I find have the most pleasing backbones, scrub and seem to be more a little more efficient.

Hopefully you're still around, and if this is as bad as you reckon it can get ,then things can only get better. A lot of nice people post real constructive ideas and facts, and even someone with 50 years shaving experience like you and I can learn something. Please don't be too hasty in your judgement. Stick around a while.

keep smiling :)

Omega boar knot from a number 98 brush, dense, thin hair, soft tips straight out of the box, still waiting for the split tips thing to happen, after 30 shaves maybe a handful showing that's all, still the softest of all my Omega boar knots

Not the best picture but my Omega 11819 is similar, it's probably had 50-60 shaves on it (my most used brush since buying it) and there are a lot of tips which haven't split but it's very soft, easily my softest brush I own and it's efficient/good at holding a lather. The only real problem I had with it is that it shed quite a bit to begin with before settling in.
