I'm selling this beautiful rather unique brush from Simpson, called SimFix Snaefell.

The handle material is a tortoise resin material, the hair used is the genuine soft tipped Simpson 2-Band Silvertip badger hair, which gives you a beautiful cloud like tips and a nice solid backbone - but it feels nothing like manchurian hair, it's far softer in feel.

The brush will suit both a bowl/scuttle lather and a dedicated face latherer. The handle is not small, so people with smaller hands should probably stay away, yet the handle is far from as thick as a Chubby 3 handle, so you don't need XXl hands either to handle this brush.

The brush has never shed one hair - at least I have never noticed it. I have used the brush between 12 and 15 times.
It has one of the better looking bulb shaped knots you will ever find.

The brush is in perfect condition. No scratches on the handle.
I'm asking what I paid for it circa a year or so ago.
I bought the brush directly from Mark at Simpson.

Knot size: 27 mm
Loft: 54 mm
Hair: Simpson Silvertip 2-band badger hair

Price including shipping (only to Europe & USA): $320*

*I'm having to reduce the price a bit, since no one seems to be willing to pay the price I paid for it originally.

New reduced price including shipping to the UK and US: $290

Cheers Claus

I'd love to try something like that! Unfortunately, not within my spending constraints. Good luck -- I expect it will find a loving home!

Thanks mate Smile

I realize the price is steep, but for me to part with it, I felt I had to sell it for a high price. Maybe turns out a too high price....Undecided

Thank you Sir or should I say Lord Wink

I did expect to be able to sell it for my asking price, but so far have had no offers, so I will have to lower the price a bit.....

Shipping will cost me $38 to the UK and $48 to the US (to get insurance and tracking), so I feel I haver to put a certain price on this brush for me justify selling it.
