Wow.

I knew I loved the Chubby handle's size, but this brush is great.
I know that many are divided about the handle's colors, but I do really like it. It is fun.

The Manchurian hair is great. It feels, at initial touch, much like the Jubilee.

I also love that there is a good size splash of orange on the front of the brush.

Again, it is a solid Simpson brush. I cannot wait to try it in the morning for the first time.

Sorry, and I hope I don't offend, but I can't stand that handle! I love the brush knot, but that handle really makes my OCD come out...I feel like I should be coloring in the shapes to make them congruous...

BUT the knot more than makes up for it...so black and then white...like a snow-capped peak in the Swiss Alps! Gorgeous!

Shagadelic, yeah, baby! Bee-have!

Wouldn't it have been VERY cool to have picked up a psychadelic Simpson from the late 60s though?

Very nice! Of all of the "psychedelic" handles I have seen, the Simpson offering is my favorite. Perfect blend of colors and the swirls are really clean looking. Enjoy it!

What a great handle! I have been fighting my impulses to get this baby. It would definitely brighten the morning shave.

Enjoy!

Love it, I just wish they could get the Jimmie Hendrix black-light poster silhouette painted on there somewhere.

+1. They should rename this brush the "Voodoo Chile". No, make that "Purple Haze".

Guess I can join the "stodgy old guy" group at the ripe old age of 33. Have to admit, the part that matters (the knot) looks amazing.

Here are a couple of pics post first shave.

I had forgotten how stiff Manchurian hair can feel on the first shave. I didn't let it soak long enough. By the end of the shave, it was softening. I cannot wait to feel it in a week from now.

Also, it was a wall of badger. There is so much hair and the knot is very dense. It is now, as I assume it will stay, a hog with the lather.
