I really thought I was done buying more badger brushes, and that I would sell my entire collection of badgers and go fully Mühle Synhetic STF V2 - because they are really THAT great IMHO.

Yet I still manage to buy not one, not two but three Simpson badger brushes in one take and one order........ I'm an idiot, no spine, no willpower Tongue

I bought one of the 'ugly' (read other thread in this sub forum) handled Chubby 2 in Jade in 2-Band Super because it has a more fan like shape than the Chubby 2 2-Band ivory I already own.....nice excuse Wink

Then I bought a Chubby 3 in Amber in Manchurian because I really felt I needed a huge stiff brush for the days when I shave down a 4-5 days stubbles beard and really need a great strong face massage...........nice excuse you weak fool Angel

Then I thought to myself.......WHY DON'T I OWN the Jubilee brush with the coin at the bottom....I can not possible live without such a brush. Just not possible to live a normal regular life without that brush in my possession......nice argument, I really can talk myself into buying these rather expensive brushes from Simpsons A6

I wish I had more will power, but I don't Blush

This hobby is definitely NOT saving me any money.

Gillette Fusion carts, even if I use a new one every single day of the year, is wayyyyyy cheaper than this traditional wet shaving hobby - but I don't mind, I'm not in this to save money after all Shaving

Claus,

It appears you're being honest with yourself in the whole matter. Kudos.

This is why I like having you around. I can show your posts to SWMBO to prove that I do have some willpower and restraint. Relatively speaking, of course Angel

Every time my wife complains about my small boar collection I show her pictures of Ben's fine collection of Simpsons.

I say see this, now leave me alone. Biggrin

Claus, honesty is key! I too have no willpower to keep myself from buying things. Brushes, soaps, even firearms, I have no control...Smile

Ben and his photography skills have kept the heat off me to the tune of six manchurians and two two band Simpsons. He is doing a service to men around the world, lurkers and members alike.

My question is, and I can sense myself falling down the rabbit hole as I ask it, is where do you buy such unusual brushes?


Goodbye sanity!!

Nevermind, I found the Simpson's site. d'uh!
Let's see....I'll lose the house first, then my wife will leave me.........

Received the 3 of the brushes - they are beautiful Cool

The little Queen looks really well made with the coin at the bottom.
One of the smallest brushes in my collection.....

The Chubby 2 Jade 2-Band Silvertip looks very classy.

The Chubby 3 Amber Manchurian is a beast. But looks awesome for it's huge 'clumsy' size.

Hope Mark will make sure his staff makes an EXTREME bulby 2-Band Blue Cobalt Chubby 3 for me.......I think these 2 will be the only Chubby 3's in my collection for the years to come......but you never know, do you ;-)

I'm at work now, will take some pics Monday - sleep at the Hotel tonight using canned shaving gel and a Fusion cart Sad(
