My latest acquisition from Simpson reminds me of an impressionist painting.

Images of Monet's water lilies flood my mind...

That's a bit like arguing handle names...

Seeing as Simpson made and named most brushes first, I'll stick with what they choose to name their rod stock too...

My confusion. I like this rod stock quite a bit and was confused why I often saw very different stock when I searched "moonjava." I'm not a fan of the other "moonjava." 

One of my dream brushes is The Hive with this rod. Not sure if that exists....

I'm sure Mark could accomodate such a request.

The rod stock has indeed been called "Purple Haze" by other brush manufacturers and suppliers.

Interestingly "Moonjava" has also been used to describe more than one rod stock option.

Perhaps Simpson wished to distance themselves from the strain of Marijuana named "Purple Haze"... ?

I can understand that! Although shaving brushes have been known to have psychoactive effects!
