The 3 is my preferred size.

Love the tulips, and wow they're shiny

Ben, those Kent persian jars are some of the most unique brush handles I've ever seen. Are they comfortable to hold? Love that black one.

I think tulip 3 is the sweetspot as well, but if you prefer smaller brushes the 2 is a nice knot at 22 mm. I had a tulip 4 in 3 band super that was way too big and bloomy.

Several tulip-y acquisitions lately...

The Simpson M6 needs no introduction. The backbone is strong in this one! Really fierce bristles.

One butterscotch is courtesy of a member here. It had lost its head, but is whole once again. It's got a puffy collar.

The wee tulip is a curiosity, possibly a Simpson knock off? It says Kensington on one side, and "3, pure badger, made in England, Sterilised" on the other. I'm not a huge fan of small brushes, but I had to have this unique one. Looks downright tiny next to the T4. The knot is surprisingly soft and springy, and hopefully serviceable.

Thanks for looking.

Very cool, that's like the Wee Scot of Tulips!
(Your el druida Tulip up in the OP is truly a beauty, now I'm wanting something similar!! Simply lovely brush Bill!!)

only having just discovered Tulips I've only got the one T3 in 2Band, none of the classic beauties you all have.

Thanks for the kind words refles! I love the look of that T3 two band, if I could get a custom jobbie in black I'd be over the moon.

And I and others have you to thank for the M6 coming back to life.

Gents:

Tulips are one the most nice shaving brushes made by simpson the handle is just awesome ergonomics etc. That will be my next purchase. Very nice the wood ones. I do believe that the tulip needs to be created in horn.

thanks
Ken

Sincere thanks and appreciation Bill to be recognized for stumbling onto the M6. I'm sure its nothing you fine gentlemen would have done yourselves in bringing it to the light. But it was the incredible gentlemen here to make it a share-able piece of lathering joy! (not to mention a lucky batch of Manchurian that is nothing short of amazing)

I've always overlooked the Tulip series but I was fixed on the M7 series but design wise its very similar with the sculpted fluted top of the handle. It actually makes it more intricate with that channel in the fluted top, I believe than even my beloved M7's and M6's.. truly a joy to have (just used my T3 Two Band yesterday as a matter of fact!). I'll need to expand on that and the one you shared from el druida is really feeding inspirational ideas! (or at least its creating a problem with my pipeline of stuff I must have hahaha)

Tulip, a worthy thread revival.

First a Simpson Super Badger, second a Rudy Vey stuffed with B6.
