I often see the Big Boy brushes get the most attention, especially when it comes to Simpson's...Chubby, Polo, size 3 & 4 brushes ect. Especially rare of the wonderful little 2-band Simpson offerings. I'm a fan of medium to smaller brushes in general, making the smaller size Simpson 2-bands accurate, soap slurping brushes that are just a joy for me to use.
I'd love to see more of everyone's examples! SHOW THEM OFF! Here are mine...hope you all like them.

Those are great looking little brushes. The two-band pattern seems to look better to me on the small ones than on larger brushes.

I'm waiting for a X3 in best to arrive, so i do hope for the "small" boys to be as good as the big ones.

But i do prefer mediun (for today standards) brushes. Above 24mm and i start to "paint" my nose, forehead, ears and the whole bathroon Biggrin

I love the posted Tulip 1 & 2, beautiful examples both. I'll have to hope Mark puts one up.

I've realized I gravitate towards being a medium sized brush guy, but I've managed to add these 2 to my stable.

Great thread Bob! I agree that the larger brushes like the Chubby 2, although garnering more attention, can sometimes be unwieldy, almost unsightly due to their size. Unfortunately I have Shrek-like hands so if you need to unload any of your bigger brushes I'm here to help. Biggrin

Here are my size 1's and 2's...I see other people posted size two Simpson brushes so here we are...They are all so beautiful and unique, especially the knots. I'm so used to using smaller brushes, I considered these size 2's more like a medium size, lolTongue...of course I left my Chubby2 2B out...likely a brush produced for giants. The Chubby 3 2B, king Kong maybe???Biggrin

Really enjoying this thread, great pictures by everyone.
Having really 'discovered' my enjoyment with my PJ2/E2 two band, I'm really tempted to try the smaller handle/knots that are out there, its like pinpoint lathering.


if you did post the CH2 2band LORDBISHOP, it would be like dangling a 2banded magical carrot in front of schickter Angel
