Check this pic out.I knew that the old Simpson Wee Scot was even smaller than the current one,but this Plisson is simply the tiniest brush ever !

[Image: P1250068.JPG?m=1344966171]

The brush is made of pure badger and its owner is Aaron662 (where did you get this brush,mate? Biggrin)

[Image: P1250069.JPG?m=1344966182]

Its knot might be around 10 mm and the loft in under 23 mm.

I havent used it yet,but Ill try to make lather with it for 3 razor passes...well,i will try! Biggrin

It's really hard to tell from pictures, but what I've seen from the smaller Wee Scot, maybe Wee Scot 1 would be the most correct, that Plisson seems to have a slight edge on it. But a comparison of the two together would be much better than just going by assumption from seeing a picture. I'm going off memory of a picture of the smaller Wee Scot and the larger Wee Scot together.

Yes,I have seen that pic too (I think it was posted by DrP) and the first Wee Scot was very tiny too compare with the new one.

Ah the handle's a smidge bigger on the Wee Scot 1 than I remembered. The loft looks comparable though. Maybe just a slight edge to the Plisson.

Teiste, I got this brush off eBay. I had hoped that it would be the Plisson equivalent of the Wee Scot, but the Wee is a much better performer at least for me. I've used the Plisson a few times, but the tiny handle makes it pretty difficult.

I don't want to be rude, but it looks like a Ken and Barbie brush.

Wow! Do you have any pictures of it next to anything normal sized for comparison? I'd love one of these to travel with!

Aaron,you are right : I tried to palm lather a couple times with this brush tonight and yes,its almost impossible to hold the brush right and not to get lather all over the hand is holding it.
I wonder if this brush was made to use it or just as a Plisson promotion.

I think it's just a novelty brush, but I think it's neat that Plisson bothered to use a real horn handle for a brush so small. The Wee Scot on the other hand is a real, functional brush. I have a Somerset version (although not the "nano" Scot), and it works particularly well with shave sticks.

You actually sent me the Tulip 2 super badger Somerset brush with the Wee Scot box!Biggrin I love to see those old Simpson instructions about how to use a brush.Vulfix/Simpson should reconsider the idea of "rescuing" those old instructions leaflets and add them again.

I have this Wee 1.

Teiste, would it be possible for you to take a picture of the little Plisson next to a penny?

This is the smallest brush I have, I use it as my travel brush. It stays in my dopp kit in a spice jar. It's a prototype made by Greg at iKon but never produced. TGN Badger know in it. Not as small as the Wee 1 above, but still pretty small.
