I bought recently from the local market a Boar brush Looks like a copy of an Omega brush,same style plastic box,the logo,the description. The sticker in purpose covers the "made in China", you have to open the box and remove the brush to see it so many people who don't know a lot maybe they will buy it as an Omega. This brush has a 27mm base knot and the knot loft is 65mm. The handle is light and cheap plus has an inclination in the bottom,a sign of careless manufacture. The bristles are soft,need some de-funk work but the knot is shedding, i mean it is shedding a lot ! Here is dry, as i pull it out of the box More impressions after some bowl-face lathering tests.
