Gents,
This beauty arrived today and I liked it a lot . Beautiful craftsmanship from the folks at Simpson. I always wanted Simpson two band in non ivory and this brush made me very happy.

Are these silvertip editions any different than Manchurian?

Chalk and cheese. Manchurian hair is thicker, has more backbone, and greater face feel.

Mustafa, that's a beauty! Looks like it has a bit more marbling going on than the others I've seen posted here.

Nice brush Mustafa!  Interesting to see how the shape of the knot is almost identical to the Manchurian knot.  I have never tried a Simpson's two band that wasn't a bulb shape. How do you like it?

Nathan, you should try a Chubby 3 Manchurian, then, as they are quite nice. Shy

I agree completely with you but I guess I should have been more clear Celestino. I have not been shy about sampling Simpson's two band Manchurian brushes or Simpson's two band Super Badger and SiLVERTiP brushes (I have enjoyed all three sizes of each hair type) Blush .  What I meant to say is that I have never seen a SiLVERTiP two band shaped in a hybrid fashion, I've only ever seen Simpson shape them as bulbs.  I am wondering if the shape enhances this hair type or not?

I have always liked black handles but I think I prefer this black marble to a straight black.  I guess this handle will have to be added to my list.  Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful brushes. Can you please tell me the difference between the manchurian and the silver tip in terms of the softness of the tips and the backbone of each. Thanks so much and keep enjoying your beautiful brushes.

Nathan,
I haven't shaved with the brush yet . I agreed first time saw hybrid in silvertip. My understanding is that mark used same supplier as last year. I owned silvertip d3 from last year but I really liked the knot and shape of ch2 hybrid.
The characteristics of Simpson silvertip but I feel that this is much more refined badger compare to last year. The backbone seems very good and much better than Shavemac , Wiborg and few others. I hope that helps
