Semogue is a shaving brush manufacturer from Portugal founded in 1955. A family owned and operated company, they remain faithful to handcrafted production processes and still operate out of the very same building in which the company was born.

History

In 1954, Lisbon businessman António Augusto da Cruz decided to create his own range of shaving brushes and contacted a company in Vila Nova de Gaia who specialised in manufacturing brushes for the construction industry. After establishing the production process and marketing the brushes, the business was a surprise success. Soon after, the owner of the brush manufacturing company decided to emigrate to South America meaning a new solution was required to continue manufacturing the shaving brushes. In January 1955, Cruz founded his own business in the city.

In 1975, the business was sold to long serving production manager, Francisco dos Santos Gomes who brought on board his son, Manuel Francisco da Silva Gomes, to collaborate and bring continuity to the company. It was at this point the company took on the name Semogue. In 2000, Manuel inherited and assumed leadership of the company, and Semogue remain a prominent brand within the Portuguese wet shaving community to this day.

A pleasure to use
This brush is everything I was looking for when deciding to buy a new brush, despite silver tip badger brushes being renowned for be very soft, this brush has plenty of backbone and is not ultra soft.
