I like boar brushes, but most of my boars are on the larger side (24mm and above), making them great for bowl lathering but a little cumbersome for face lathering. So, I decided I needed a smaller brush for face lathering, and this is the one I ended up with. It is not my first Omega, I know what they are like. Now that I have it in hand, I can say it meets my expectations. Good quality, quick to break in, and no animal smell.
The brush at 23mm is more suited to face lathering, which is what I mostly do nowadays after having generally been a bowl latherer in the past. I got the bottle green handle - it is hard to tell online exactly what the colour is going to look like in person, but it is fairly close to the images and I like it. So if you want a boar brush for face lathering - though this one will do bowl lathering equally as well - then I can recommend this one.
