I just saw this brush, and wonder if I should pull the trigger Smile

Link: http://wetshavingproducts.com/silvertip-...ain-white/

26mm XD Knot
52mm Loft
44mm Handle
20% more hair than our HD knots!
3-Band High Mountain White Badger (similar to Plissons hair)

I'm afraid the knot will bloom too much, but the density should quiet the bloom down a bit is my hope, but will this in fact make it splay even more ?

Also wonder if I should buy the 2-Bander from WSP, can anyone tell me a little bit about how it performs for a TOFLAC-U member that only face lathers ?

I consider buying both the WSP Stubby & the WSP 2-Band 'BK8' - will I regret shelling out $258 on these including shipping ?

Do we have a discount on the Nook with WSP by the way ?

Claus, wait just a bit longer. Soon there will be a "Stubby" 2-band brush in the same handle as the 3-band you linked too.

The Stubby HMW is the closest one I have found to old Plisson HMW 3 band.
The Monarch Two Band is a great brush : used it yesterday and I do like it a lot.
However , if you are sold to 2 band brushes , just wait for the Stubby 2 band.

Claus, you might want to read through this thread.

http://shavenook.com/thread-wsp-stubbies-a-sneek-peek

i would wait on the Stubby 2-band as i know you like your 2-bands and this thing does not bloom much, at all. Mine is set at 53mm and there is hardly any bloom and it does not splay very much when i face-lather. Good luck, but i don't think you need any more brushes. Wink

I have the 2 Band Stubby prototype... Nice brush... Supposedly the production run will be more of a fan shape... The beta is a hybrid bulb...

After reading Teiste's reviews and considering the price for what you get, I say go for it. You could always B/S/T it if it does not work out.

I took the jump and received it on Monday. Have not had a chance to use it yet, though. I would love to hear your comments on it.

Decided to buy 6 new DE razors instead (Feather AS-D2, Ikon OSS matte handle with OC head, Mühle RoseGold R41, Mühle R89 Chrome, Merkur 38c & Merkur 39c, if interested Thumbup ) - also have a pending order for 5 Simpson brushes, so will postpone this purchase a while Shy

Claus, we'll all be looking forward to reading your reviews of the newly ordered DE razors and Simpson brushes.

Now the guessing begins as to exactly which Simpson brushes you have on order!

I'm especially curious to get your oppinion of the AS-D2, especially in light of your past experience (which mirrored my own) with the AS-D1.

Quite an impressive selection of new Simpson brushes.

I'm curious regarding the hair you have ordered for the Duke 3. Have you tried the "Best of the Best" combination in the past, and if so, I'd appreciate a brief performance review.

Thanks.

No, not yet.
He's very busy.
I don't expect to get them before May/June. I'm a patient man, I'm used to dealing with Lee Sabini - and Mark responds quite a bit faster than Lee does :-)

Not sure, it's just a composition I think I might have gotten in the LE Chubby 2 faux ivory swirl Mark sold me 3-4 months ago.

The Best hair in that is fantastic. Great backbone like a 2-Band from Simpson yet soft tips like a Super 3-Band from Simpson. I'm hoping Mark can make such a combo for me in a Duke 3,
Hence I name it and inscript 'BEST of the BEST'
