An essential and vital component for a respectable wet shave,


this Simpson badger shaving brush is amazing.

Will update with some after bloom shots , but after 2 shaves with it all I can say is
that I am tickled pink with this delightful brush.

Ben, with a loft of only 43mm, the Classic 2 brush in Best may be better than the Manchurian badger, most certainly on cost but also perhaps on performance.

The Classic 2 is the logical choice and without doubt the soundest decision economically speaking. But the Manchurian would be my ultimate travel brush.

I think the Classic could be named Chubby Zero, too. It's pretty much the same like a slightly shrinked Chubby.

I find my Classic 2 in best somewhere between the Duke 2 and the Chubby 2 (both in best) except that it isn't, like the Chubby, a lather hog. I love the handle, too. A real 'classic' I suppose.

Odd, really, calling a badger hair brush a 'hog'. I hate to be a boar Smile

Here it is Biggrin

Similar, but different to the Chubby 1.
I am curious about the first use. I love the handle.
