Yes, got it a couple of months ago but realize I don't need this as I already have the butterscotch.  Great for face lathering.

Fellas, this is a really good deal. If I didn't already have two of these I would snatch it up.

I remember seeing that brush and I don't think I've ever seen such a brush before. How in the heck are those white tips so close up to the top and only a small section!? Might be the closest you'll ever see to a 1-band badger shaving brush!  Biggrin

Faux ivory is just the solid ivory color and the imitation has the ivory grain as well I believe

Gorgeous brush!  Someone please buy this.  I am tempted and have already bought a Duke 3 in Manchurian this month.... and Santa knows I have not been a good boy with my shaving purchases this year!

Faux means imitation. It's the same thing. There are three ivory handles that Simpson makes. They are the plain ivory that's the standard Simpson handle, ivory fleck, and the more prominent ivory stripe.

David, thanks for the clarification.  I knew that faux means imitation. I had seen some pics of the boxes that included imit ivory that had some grain to it and faux ivory with the plain ivory handle.  When I checked my box with the plain ivory it just says M7, hence why I was confused.

My guess is that this is the plain ivory handle.
