Can someone tell me about the Simpson Chubby 2 Two-Band ? Is it worth the price tag ? How it performs and flow through with lather ?

Big, luxurious, eats any soap I throw at it, and phenomenal flow though. To describe it. . . .hmmmm. You know that feeling when you eat your favorite "comfort food?" That's what it's like to use a Chubby 2 2-band. lol

Just remember. . .BIG knots require more product. Biggrin

I agree with jeff, denisty is okay nothing crazy, the handle...can be pretty slippery and dangerous as I found out the hard way. But the hair....very soft tips, I love it. I paid 200 for mine....well worth it and would buy another if I didnt have one.

This is the most expensive brush in my den (I think), and for me, yes it was worth the $$. If it wasn't, I would have let it go very quickly to recoup most of my investment...and I can confidently say my 2 Band CH2 will not be going anywhere.

It's not an everyday brush for me, more of a weekend brush for those slow luxurious shaves. I love everything about it...handle, size, and the knot is just on another level. In my book, this is one of the great ones Cool

Glad I've seen this thread, I was thinking of pulling the trigger on a chubby 2 and was asking myself the same question especially when I have some great brushes at less than half the price - the new ebony handle version....mmmmmmm

I had a chubby 2 and passed it on. I now have an m&f 1/3 in finest and find the handle to be much more comfortable and the style of knot better for face lathering. Your milage may very though.

Enjoy the CH2, the silvertip is an extreme luxuriously soft brush! I enjoy mine very much.

Have to admit thou as much as I want the new ebony one, the 420+ cost makes me pause though when you look at in gbp it don't look like much Wink lol

This brush is just plain fun to use...It's plush big knot isn't as ridiculous as the Chubby 3 on my face, yet still makes tons of lather and helps to apply it generously! The two-band hair is top notch, super soft, perfect flow through and the handle is also a great size in relation to it's shape...Of course highly recommended Angel
