For all those wanting a smaller Simpsons synthetic brush, here you go. Mark post this on facebook this morning. No knot/loft listed as of now.

I saw that one, Johnny. My first thought when I saw it was that it could be the ideal travel brush. My Classic 1 in Best is a tremendous brush and easier to wield than the Wee Scot. What's not to like about a small, fast drying brush?

I agree Bob. I wish Mark would have given us the measurements. I'm sure they will come in due time when they go on sale.

This is the one I've been waiting for too! IMO this will make the perfect "all round" travel brush for me. I've been using a Simpson Case brush for travel for awhile now and love almost everything about it...It doesn't always dry completely in the travel case, so it usually takes more effort to dry the brush as much as possible before storing the CASE brush, back in it's tube...maybe this has something to do w/that brush shedding more than any other brush I've ever owned. It's not bad shedding, but persistent, every use yields a hair or two. This is where the Classic 1 Synthetic would shine for me, as the three most important features of a travel brush are 1)Creating great lather/bringing luxury on the road 2)Able to dry quickly 3)Some sort of protection to keep the brush from being damaged during travel. I did recently acquire a Classic 1 2-Band for travel...the handle is comfortable and it meets my three requirements...although I'll likely only take it on longer trips that include hotel stays, or long term stays at friends homes. the Classic 1 Synthetic would be much better suited for a few days out, where I won't have the option to leave it out to dry as easily; probably during some weekend stays in NYC w/only a backpack.

What would guess the "middle" brush handle is?

The Duke.

I used to think that; the Duke seems a natural. But wasn't the small brush "supposed" to be the Case? Mark throws a mean change-up, so now . . .

I asked Mark a few ago when I was trying to get a custom order in about it and said its in the pipeline, but after the Chubby Synthetic launch was done. So looks like Classic 1 made it out first ahead of a Duke, my guess is that he's building anticipation to the Duke as probably everyone looking to try something more 'regular' would take to that immediately.

I got the same answer when I ordered my synthetic chubby and asked if they were going to release it in a smaller handle like the Duke. And he told me that it's in the pipeline as well. I would go and get a Duke 3 Synthetic. Just hopefully the price isn't the same as the Chubby.

If he's trying to build anticipation, it's working.

That looks lovely and the loft seems to match the size of the knot, nicely!

After the good experience with the Chubby2 synthetic this looks like it could be a replacement for my Muhle synthetic travel brush.

Same here. I'm always reaching for my Chubby vs the Muhles now. I might have to go list them on the BST if this one and the Duke work out.

I think I'd probably take my Franks Shaving synthetic if I wanted to lather up from a soap while traveling.

I've got 4 synthetics right now, please tell me what's so much more desirable in the Simsons, as compared to the HIS/Muhle/and Edwin Jagger. I love those big synthetics. Does Simpson anticipate making a large (62- 66) synthetic?
