Excited, just ordered with Mark's help an M7 in Two Band while I have a back ordered M7 in Manchurian (both in Butterscotch) in their production que.
That should make due for a great rotation for 2014!

It was pretty comical looking back at how I got to this point..
Mark's a busy guy so its hard to get long conversations with him as I imagine there's tons of things going on, especially during the holidays and since he reached out to me just before Simpson's holiday break that he had no M7 Butterscotch Manchurian left in inventory when I ordered and would need to be made. So I took the opportunity to continue the conversation to see what else can be done in terms of getting additional hidden goodies! I admit that I didn't have the faintest idea of what I was asking for, just basically asking are there any other M7 varieties that he may have? So it turned into quick emails 1x a week till the M7 in Two Band just showed up. But I did ask him a week before if a Butterscotch Two Band would be faster to produce if he already had to make a Manchurian in the same material. I was sort of making it simple and directed now, but he did have some Chubby 2's that came off the bench, but having 1 in the rotation I think is good right now, need to develop better technique with the one I have, it really is a wall of silky smooth badger.

So obviously I'm not as savvy as you guys in knowing what I want, just something nice but I do really love the M7 shape. Mark's very nice to communicate with, he put up with my directionless requests to see if there's something in the 'hidden stash' as I put it to him. lol...

Thanks Mark for your help.. looking forward to some great brushes!!

I've never used the Simpsons Manchurian but I have used the Simpsons 2-band. You are going to love that brush.

I just received a Ch2 2 band from Mark. It is fantastic! It's not overly dense, plenty of backbone and flex - a nice balance, hooked tips and great face feel.

I'm sure you'll love it.

Ben,
that is a beauty!! question for you, I was trying to get answer out of Mark, does it come with Manchurian engraved there or do you need to ask for it since I have both Manchurian and Silvertip, was wondering if that would be done.

SilverTip and Manchurian will be engraved on the handle but on the opposite side.

Mine is different because I had my brush personalised with my name...

You're getting an awesome pair of brushes. I received the M7 Manchurian for Christmas and at some point will add the 2-band version.

Thanks all, really excited on this.. it can't come soon enough Rolleyes

Thanks Ben for the info, I forgot you've mentioned that before in prior posts. The engraving is all framed well so that why I thought it was the norm for that brush and was wondering why some of the M7's from Nov-Dec didn't have that look. Blush

Not trying to steal the spotlight here but here is a pic of my Chubby 2 with the rest of my collection. It really is an outstanding brush and I am now a believer in Simpsons. I also now have a Duke 3 that is outstanding as well - Thanks Teiste!

My M7 is by far my favorite brush. Granted its the GYLE, but I love the handle. I hate it when shaving cream slides down the handle on my hands.

I've always liked the longer, lip-less Emperor-type handle, but recently got an Elite7 with the lip. It really works. I always knew I was a lip man. Good luck with your M7.
