I absolutely adore my 58. Have it in Best and Manchurian. The handle and ergonomics of it are just perfect.

Well said Carmine.

Yes, a big +1. Mark’s stewardship of the brand seems to only have increased it’s esteem and value as an industry standard bearer.

I personally think every wet-shaver should own at least one Simpson brush, and this would be a great year to by one (or another one). 

Brush-makers come and go, but I don't like to imagine a world without Simpsons Shaving Brushes.

+1 on these sentiments.

Pretty cool brush handles on the Chubby 2s for the 100th.  But are they all being offered in Best Badger?

Simpson’s is cycling through various hair types, but you have to be quick - as they are selling out quickly.

That said - the two-band silvertip brushes are hitting the store now

I was able to pick up a two band silvertip chubby 2 in a beautiful blue.  Looks sweet.

Here’s are two. It’s challenging to capture the iridescent quality...

Didn't see the two-band Silvertips from this release. Was this a custom order?

There have been a few that have hit the store, but they sold out very quickly. Same with the manchurians.

That's a beautiful brush.  Great color and that 2 band Silvertip knot is extraordinary.   I have one in liquid gold on the way.

I love the liquid gold, I have it in best as you can see.  First use of this knot last night was exemplary.  Great big soft face feel. It's unusual in that it seem so dense when dry but really opens up when wet. It's a pleasure to use. I'm sure you'll love the LG!
