I saw the Simpson wee Scot on a tortoise finish in best badger.  I usually like bigger  brushes but don't mind smaller ones.  It would be my first Simpson best badger.  Yay or nay? Whatdoyasay?

I think the Wee Scot is a wonderful brush. It's small, but for me it's a lathering maniac. Here are my "twins" together:

The Wee Scott makes for a wonderful alternative to any daily brush rotation, very enjoyable to use and extremely precise compared to my CH2's and M7... The tortoise Wee Scott in particular is quite pleasing to look at and the knot on this one is a great example of Best Badger. I recommend one ... If ur used to larger brushes be prepared for a good laugh as it is comically small

Is it even ideal to use manchurian knots in a wee scott? would simpsons ever make one with such knot?

The Wee Scot -- one 't' only! -- is an enjoyable brush that's not just for travel.
I don't have big hands and have in general gravitated toward small brushes, so it suits me well.

Alas, mine developed a shedding problem. The Simpson's people are kindly taking a look.

The other thing I've heard is that some buyers find theirs a bit prickly.
That wasn't the case with mine.

Temptation turned to action. Just ordered a tortoise version from Simpson.  Thought about a Case synthetic but alas they weren't in stock.

It is also the only brush Alexander Simpson put his name on.

I use my Wee Scot as my travel brush.  Very compact, minuscule weight, and  drying time (between uses) is much shorter than knots 20mm or larger.  For its size, the brush can whip massive quantities - for at least three passes.


A "novelty?"  NOT.  lol

I used it.  Size wasn't too bad all things considered bug it was prickly as all get out.  Hoping it will break in!?!?

I used to take my Wee Scot traveling, but since I purchased a CH2 Synthetic...Buh Bye Wee Scot. It's cute. And yes, it's a novelty. Look up the word.
"the quality of being new, original, or unusual."

Today I thought of the Wee Scot while lathering up with a 30mm beast. At some point I considered the Wee Scot but I can't imagine how it feels compared to "regular" sized brushes.

One wonders if Old George was having fun with the Scots; given 'Wee' is so much a part of the dailect north of Hadrian's wall. I briefly studied medieval weaponry under a Scot while simultaneously studying kendo with my buddhist Roshi. Anything less than a true Claymore or Irish two handed fighting sword was 'a wee stick'. I dismissed any notion of their unwieldlyness disarming (not literally) a cossack born fencer with a Shashka. Perhaps we could hold our own shaving games someday, have a 'tossing the Wee Scott' in lieu of cabers.

Toss a wee Scot? But how would we lure Jackie Stewart into the games?
