Made by SEMOGUE, the Shaving Brush has been manufactured for many decades. It maintains a strong handcrafted component, so that the quality and excellence of the product is never lost.

The Semogue 1250 bristle shaving brush has a neutral oak wood handle and the hair is made with the finest quality pure bristle.  This all around shaving brush is great all around brush, perfect for both bowl and face lather. As most bristle brushes, it will need a break-in period, which is usually quite fast with this brush.

The knot has a 24 mm diameter and 53 mm height. The handle is 57 mm tall and has 37 mm in its widest point. The beautiful wooden handle is made of ash wood.


Born in 1955, the Semogue Shaving Brushes factory continues to be a family company that remains faithful to the handcrafted production process of its products. With its doors open in the same building where it was born, Semogue continues to paint tradition, giving form to an object that continues to have no direct competitor.

Strokes of a story

In the year 1954, a Lisbon businessman by the name António Augusto da Cruz decided to include in his range of products, the shaving brush. With the intent of starting this new activity, he contacts a company in Praia da Aguda, Vila Nova de Gaia that manufactures brushes for the construction industry. After a round of talks, the production process begins, followed by the commercialization of the products. The business' success was a total surprise.

However, an unexpected situation arises. The owner decides to immigrate to South America, which meant that new installations had to be found in order to continue manufacturing the product. In January 1955, the company António Augusto da Cruz is founded in Vila Nova de Gaia, by António Augusto da Cruz, whose production manager is Francisco dos Santos Gomes.

In September 1975, the company is bought by Francisco dos Santos Gomes, who baptized the company Francisco dos Santos Gomes, and invited his son, Manuel Gomes, to collaborate with this project and give the company continuity. It is at this time that the brand is named Semogue, a name that has remained until present day. With the death of Francisco Gomes in October 2000, his son Manuel Francisco da Silva Gomes, assumes, by succession, the company's leadership... and that is how the Manuel Francisco da Silva Gomes. company is born.


In its origin, Semogue had as its philosophy the introduction of its products in northern Portugal, seeing as the Excelsior brand was going strong in the southern part of the country. Today, both brands compete side by side in different product segments, representing an average annual production of 120.000 units.The shaving machines simply cannot erase this familiar and handcrafted tradition, but the truth is that together with shaving cream, they do take away some of the shaving brush's market share.

The resistant shaving brush, in badger or pig bristle, finds its main clients in luxurious shops, perfume stores and even in large supermarkets.

Besides the Portuguese market, the Semogue brand has found admirers of their traditional shaving brushes abroad, exporting mainly to countries such as: Spain, United States of America, France, Canada, Ireland and Germany.

In the year 2010, the brand celebrated 55 years in the beards of a tradition that this Portuguese company does not want to let disappear.

One of the three blondes I purchased from this most excellent vendor. The other purchases were the 2000 and the OC in Cherry. This brush broke in very easily and immediately produced a superb lather and shaving experience. It is a slightly floppy brush but not overly so, but is yet a young brush for me and can only therefore improve, like a good boar brush surely will. Think badger is the ultimate? Think again; nothing beats the soft, creamy feel of a broken-in boar from Semogue. It feels absolutely perfect to hold, too, despite being the smaller handle of the three. You need to hold it for yourself and marvel. Obviously, a lot of thought gone into this feature. $15.97 ? Kidding, right? Well, you can't go wrong, then, can you? You owe it to yourself: shave like a king and GET ONE NOW! Get 2! I did :)
