I finally gave in to my curiosity and got the Simpson Wee Scot thanks to the Brexit 20% off special at West Coast Shaving. It's an awesome little brush on steroids. It's surgically precise and all that I read about. [Image: bb429dd1914cde64b0f437cac86f4b32.jpg][Image: 333a05c97f4561d5ab2e82a49de7c490.jpg]

+1 Wee Scot is superb, a face latherers' dream and holds a ton of soap for its size.

Just wish I could hold on to it comfortable without getting cramps in my fingers and dropping it.
This brush is NOT for people with large hands.

But for Gents with smaller to medium hands, it's a sweet little brush.

I love my little Wee Scot.  I was shocked as to how it actually performed.

I resisted for some time, but I picked up one of the tortoiseshell Wee Scot's and plan to keep it along with my other Wee Scot. Maybe with enough time I can get a Wee Scot in various handle materials going! lol

I think it was my P8 handle I purchased from Rudy Vey, but I had the thought for some reason to put it inside whatever handle it was and found it to be an exact fit for the brush making a bigger Wee Scot. I should've taken some blutack like I had thought at the time of doing and put it inside the handle and then the Wee Scot and tried shaving with the Wee Scot like that. I seem to remember on one of the various forums you'll find some other ingenious solutions to make the Wee Scot more usable. Not that it'd be worth it to do it, but the thought of trying something like that has been brought up and is interesting to me.

Got one from a fellow here on The Nook and am quite happy with it...it sees duty at least once a week.

Some day I still hope to encounter its original form, the ultra-rare "Nano Scot".

I am curious about this one.  Specially the one with the brown handle.

Was too wee for me. Scritchy too. Many love it, though.

I went through 2 wee scots and the first one was really scitchy and the most recent one I purchased in the tortoise handle, is much better with more scrub and just a tiny bit of scritch that's more like a slight face sensation. To have landed a good batch of best badger is very satisfying.

The handle is extremely small, definitely not for the larger hands or those who favor the CH3 sized handles. I'm not a big guy and have noticed that my hands cramp up if I do really hold onto it tightly. I really am surprised and very pleased by its performance, but should I be, it's a Simpson after all

Great counter-example to the myth that small brushes can't hold 3 passes of lather. If the 14mm Wee Scot can manage, certainly a 20-22mm brush should work.

Awww... cute shot!

I gave my kids (4 and 6 yrs old) a little splash of Derby Chop Shop Winter Reserve the other day.  They love that stuff, as do I!  Smile

Wee Scot in faux horn.

Its a very capable brush (and absolutely stunning in faux horn), but just too small for me. My favourite little brush is the CL1.
