Title says it all.  I want to purchase an M7 Simpson's manchurian butterscotch.  With box and in excellent shape.  

I would be willing to trade my ikon DLC bamboo open comb plus cash as another option.  

Thanks!

Thanks for the heads up!  Unfortunately, the seller wanted prices above what they cost brand new. I couldn't justify paying above new costs for a used brush.  Even if it was only used a few times.  Still used. 

I appreciate the heads up, however.

Not sure which thread you are referring to, probably got sold and archived real quick and i missed it. regardless how much is the brush brand new?

It was way off IMO, but that's seller's prerogative and it sold already, so it doesn't really matter Biggrin

If you take a look at Simpson's LE page you could assess they run about 225 pounds with an acrylic handle. Once you convert to USD and shipping your looking at $360-370. The one on bst went for $325 shipped. I personally wouldn't have spent that much but I don't think it was too far off base for something you can't get, that's also in high demand on the forums

I understand what you mean and I agree.  I was speaking for myself, I probably wouldn't pay that for a used brush, in production or not, but that's me.  Mainly, because is not my type of brush, otherwise, who knows. Biggrin

My congrats to the seller and new owner.

My sentiments exactly, my hands prefer the chubby style handles over the taller m7. Give me the chubbies and dukes please

Having bought a few M7s in the past direct, I can tell you they close 209 GBP with shipping.

Just checked Simpsons' LE page and the only M7 price I could see was 325 GBP, and no brushes were in stock...

Manchurian chubby 2 used to be in the high $200's USD, prices have unfortunately gone up on these brushes. It could be due to them now seeking direct from their site

Horn is more expensive, but you can compare horn prices for chubby 2 and duke 3 then use that as your guide in resin. You'd get right around 225

Gentlemen, 

Thank you for your kind words. I wanted this brush, agreed to pay the price, and I do not have any buyers remorse.

Good luck with your search!

Nor should you Alex. I have been in the same position. You want something, you go out and get it. Enjoy the brush for many shaves.
And to get the thread back on track: I hope you find your brush Michael.
