At the end of March I ordered a Simpsons Classic 1 Manchurian in Amber and was not paying attention to my auto fill and put the wrong postal code in. ( we recently moved).
So... The brush made the trip from the Isle of Man to Alberta, Canada. The Postal service couldn't deliver it so back it went. This turned out to be a good thing, despite the frustration of waiting.
The Little guy picked up a big brother and brought him back with him and they both arrived today!

I am so looking forward to trying these. More pics to follow once I have had a chance to test lather them a few times.

I used the Classic 1 today and WOW! I fully understand why guys go nuts for these manchurians. Super soft and tones of backbone. This little guy is a soap eater and will produce its weight in lather. What a great experience, Mark and his crew have really outdone themselves. I posted a pic in the SOTD section of the full shave but, here are a few in boom pics.

After a few shaves this little guy has really started to soften up nicely. I can see this brush jumping to the front of the line. The exception is the Chubby 2 Manchurian that came with it. I used It today for the first time and posted in the shave of the day. Here they are both in Boom!
