The latest model from the Simpson range to receive some colour (along with Manchurian hair) is the Tulip.

Mark released some images of coloured T3 and T4 Manchurian brushes on Twitter a few weeks ago (as seen above).

I was lucky to secure a Candy Stripe T4...

It joins my T3 in traditional rod stock...

There appears to be minimal difference in knot size, but the T4 handle feels significantly larger than the T3...

The Tulip is an ergonomic handle, very comfortable to hold and perhaps inspiration for some of the design elements of the popular M7.

The lip of the Tulip is as functional as it is aesthetic. 

The lip prevents excess lather from sliding down the handle.

The Candy Stripe rod stock lends itself well to the shape of the Tulip...

I now crave a whole bunch of Tulips!

I am usually not a fan of "wildly" colored brush handles, but that one is beautiful.
