My Butterscotch Manchurian Rover is a favourite mid size brush with a 21.5mm knot and 50mm loft. A classic that does is all - soap, cream, bowl or face. Simpson now has one in Faux Briar listed as available in their Ltd section. First I have seen. There were two but...

Bet that would go very nicely with a Horn Rover!

That Black Rover has to be one of the greatest looking brushes Simpsons has ever made! I love that!

The Black Rover is sweet. The gold lettering really pops on it.

There were 4 of the briar Rovers listed early yesterday...now it looks like they are down to 1 more...

I agree, that Black "Rover" is beautiful. Hopefully, one day I will be able to acquire one if someone sells one of theirs offBiggrin

if the TULIP is my favourite Simpson handle, the ROVER is my 2nd.

Very nice looking brushes.

that butterscotch with the slighly bulbous shaped knot is a beauty.

Ben has a way of making his collection look especially good. While the black is a stunning looker my preference leans towards the horn. Great brushes all.

The Tulip is a very comfortable natural feeling handle. Unfortunately, Mark hasn't let much variety in materials slip out so far. Perhaps in future.

I could justify another Chubby 2 Manchurian though! Mark, if you are reading, any more LE CH2 brushes on the horizon?

Who knows ... ?

Perhaps some Ebony Chubby 2's in Manchurian for that 'extra' special Christmas gift that you always promised yourself! ...

I'll think about it as I ride 'The Hulk' at the Islands of Adventure Wink

Guilty, and Mark just posted more Rovers. BAD is in full force this week.

Is that a Briar "The Hive" in the back lower right of that cabinet shot?

Mark?

All these limited edition handles that I missed out onConfused Here's to hoping Simpsons brings back some of the Jade, Butterscotch, and Black ones at some pointBiggrin For some reason Ben's butterscotch Rover looks so bright it's almost orange. I know it's probably the light from the photo but I like it.

Mark, just keep considering a size 3 Rover. I'm telling you, instant hit. I have a Somerset Size 1, consider the current offering a size 2, but a 3 would be a face latherers dream. A jade size 3 Rover, the REAL Hulk...
