What is the badger brush with the most backbone?  Simpson Chub 1?

Also, if you rated the following brushes from most backbone to least, what would it be? (Simpson, Paladin, Rooney, Declaration Brushworks, Morris & Forndran, Shavemac, Thater)

What say the board?

Two possibilities quickly come to mind.  A custom configured Shavemac with a D01 2-band bulb set to a low loft.  Or a Simpson Chubby 2 Manchurian.

By the way, welcome to TSN.  Please introduce yourself in the Introductions section, so our members can give you a proper welcome.

Shavemac D01 2 band in bulb or pointed bulb shape or a Manchurian Chubby would be my suggestions as well.

It's one of the sub forums under The Front Office, just after Announcements.

I have nothing to add to this conversation except to report that by saying, "Badger Brush Brand Backbone" quickly three times, I got a cramp in my tongue.

Try it.  You know you want to.

Shavemac D01 2-band in bulb with a short loft - no contest.
It will scratch your face off, not kidding here.

I would recommend M&F brushes from Brad Sears. He currently has a nice 2XL in the ready made section:

Thank you sir! I believe I am going for a custom Brad Sears in Butterscotch with a White Porcelain ring in Archduke II.  I am going to have him set the knot lower to 48mm instead of the standard 50mm.  The link is below to the brush.

Sorry for the delayed response! Here is the link: https://www.bradsearsshaveworks.com/coll...-briarwood (Manning mentioned the same brush a few posts above)

I am also a fan of butterscotch, but after I received my 3XL in antique faux ivory, it became my new favorite of Brad/M&F brushes

An excellent selection! Brads knots (at least those I had experience with) quickly develop gel-like tips. Divine!
