Gents, up for sale are two new Simpson brushes. Palm lathered only once but both are to small for my liking, so I want to sell them to free funds for a CH3.

1. Chubby 2 Two band Silvertip in Faux Horn. $360 new, your price is $320.

Thank you, Mike! I like the Faux Ruby - it has an amazing depth, that pictures can't really catch. Too bad Simpson doesn't do the CH3 in that color anymore.

I have a question. Why are sellers listing the original prices with VAT? If anyone here in the US orders directly from Simpson we dont pay VAT.
No offense but the Duke 3 in Manchurian costs me 220GBP which is 287$ and not 345.

This seller is in Germany and certainly has to pay VAT for their purchases. Just because we in the US don't have to doesn't mean that they should have to not include VAT into the price consideration when listing. It might be possible to get the Duke 3 right now on Simpson's, but I doubt it, and the Chubby 2 is definitely not available. They are limited edition, and are priced well.

OK, makes sense. I wasn't trying to throw off the sale or anything just wasn't sure where to post the question.
If inappropriate please delete.

I don't understand your comment Joe. Are you saying that those handle colors are not available? I just checked Simpson's site and there are limited edition CH2's and Duke 3's available with Silvertip and Manchurian hair.

Whilst the Ruby Red is currently available, the Faux Horn is certainly an infrequent colour to make an appearance.

Please remember that although TSN is a U.S. based forum, its following is international. American citizens may be exempt from paying our VAT, but these higher prices are not just limited to us in the EU. This sale will be attractive to a wide audience outside of the USA.

Well said. I think these brushes are fantastic, and worth the asking prices. Jens is an upstanding gentleman to do business with.

Sorry for the confusion. I am saying it is a combination of all the characteristics the OP's brushes have that are not available. Hair grade, handle shape, and handle color. You can actually get close and get a Duke 3 Ruby with 2-band Silvertip. There are certainly plenty of wonderful CH2's and Duke 3's as you've stated in both grades.

Also, no problem Alex1921. I was just explaining why I thought it was reasonable. Smile

I was not questioning the prices. They are appropriate in some places. I just wanted Joe to be a little more specific about what is and is not available. Thanks Joe for clarifying that. I also think Alex is new to this BST stuff, so his confusion is understandable.

The 20% VAT puts UK/EU members at a big disadvantage when selling to US members.  Hopefully potential buyers research prices for their shaving forum/eBay/online purchases.

Hey all you guys!

I was absent for a couple days and just now saw all these comments. I really wasn't aware that you people in the US are exempt from VAT. It's part of what makes Simpson brushes that expensive for us over here. A CH3 Manchurian directly from Simpsons would cost me like EUR 395 (that's 445 USD).

If any of you is interested in the brushes, drop me a PM, and we can evaluate things Wink 

Thanks!
