I am happy to introduce the Simpson Trafalgar series of synthetic shaving brushes. These brushes sport lathe turned resin handles and specially sourced Sovereign grade synthetic fiber. The brushes are substantial as well as a screaming bargain.


Trafalgar T2 - 26mm knot -Only $22.00


Trafalgar T3 -30mm knot -Only $24.99

Thank you. It is a beast... it reminds me of a chubby 2.

Signs011   Indeed they are.  Lathe turned handles and handmade knots.  I don't know how Simpson can produce this quality at a price competitive with the Chinese imports.

Yes. For a while, I had the D3-esque Simfix synth. It was very reasonably priced. I’m interested in learning if these new Trafalgar knots are similar to the Simfix knot (which reminded me of the Thater synth material). Guessing at this price point it’s probably not the platinum grade fiber, more likely the sovereign grade. Is the handle substantial, akin to the rest of the Simpson line?

Yes Charlie, the handle is definitely substantial. I should have weighed the brush. I’ll do so when I get in today (if I remember).

I will have to pay closer attention for the announcement of the next batch.  Those went quick.
