The good Lord knows I have enough brushes, but it's been a long time since I had a new one, and I'm getting the itch.
I like products of the U.K.. I grew up on them, having been born, and living in Wales much of my first five years, and having many relatives there send me gifts when we came to the U.S.
Hence, my partiality toward Simpsons. I've been through my Morris&Forndran era, and would like a Simpsons Persian Jar 2 in 2-band as my last brush.
I think the classic Persian Jar shape is the ultimate example of the breed, both visually and functionally. Two band Super Badger is my hair of choice .. I just get on with it very well.

But, finding a PJ2 in two band is becoming a bit difficult. I'm willing to pay the standard price, but not really to pay a premium for a "one-off" from Simpsons..

Can anyone help??

E-mail Mark at Simpson and ask what he can do for you. Another English brush you might consider are the New Forest Brushes super 2-band. These brushes are assembled/made in Lymington, Hampshire. Sorry, but I'm not aware of any Welsh brush makers.

I would have to concur with Bryan about contacting Mark.

You could always post a WTB on the forums to see if one is available. Barring that, you could try to get a custom handle done by one of the artisans and get a similar knot to the 2-band as there are a few that are very similar. Good luck.
