Well, I have been owning a stellar Chubby 2 in 2 Band (2012) for a while and have so far refrained from getting any Chubby 2 in a different hair grade as the 2 Band of that period is just the "unicorn" hair in the Simpson line-up.

Finally, I caved after having a great experience with the latest Manchurian batch (58, captain) and the recent Super hair (PJ3).

So, I decided to jump on an opportunity of a Chubby 2 Manchurian in faux tortoise from a fellow member (thanks!) and a cream handle Chubby 2 in Super from TSS (Jarrod is my "go to" vendor for Simpson brushes, cannot beat the pics).

And here they are in their entire beauty:

Chubby 2 Two Band (2012): 28/48mm
Chubby 2 Manchurian (2016): 28/54mm
Chubby 2 Super (2017): 28/53mm

First hand lather left great impression on both regarding softness of tips. After a few shaves I may have to publish a comparison of the knots (got to rename those to "Three Brothers" I guess.... ).   Tongue

Or simply, The Three Amigos!

Wow, Simpsons bulbs made with the 2 band Super are perfect! Simply stunning.

The Chubby 2 current 3-band Super is a wonderful knot. I bought two in 2016 and enjoy both equally. Sadly, I missed out on the 2 band hair from 2012... I'm saving my pennies, holding off on buying a Chubby with Manchurian, thinking that Mark is probably planning something spectacularly expensive for the centennial. Regardless of what it may be, chances are I'll likely want one of those!

Congratulations on the Chubby trio Smile

Congratulations.  You're a fortunate man.  Simpson 2-band is so elusive that many of us will never have a complete set of Chubby 2's.

That chubby 2 two-band bulb is fantastic! I have a C2Manchurian myself, and can confirm that it's easily a favorite.

You may not need it, but it's a Two Band.
