I am opening my vault for a unique opportunity to experience what I believe are some of the finest brushes ever made by Simpson. 


During a period of about 2 years (2011-13) Simpson had a phenomenal 2 Band hair with amazing characteristics: fine, but resilient, assembled in uniform, bulbous, densely (for 2 Band) packed knots. These are still carrying the “Made in England” sticker and came first in grey and then green boxes.

2 Bands of that time were produced infrequently, when such hair was on hand, and set into handles not specially marked. That’s why you find those in handles marked “Best Badger” or “Super Badger”. I approached Mark Watterson at the time and asked, if he could do a few customs for me and so a series of brushes came together, some specially marked “Silvertip” - a nomenclature Simpson then kept for any following 2 Band offering.

I am offering 2 brushes from this period for sale today: one, the “58”  (SOLD) is an “off the shelf” brush, the other is a custom Classic 1, it is  a “unicorn”, i.e. to my knowledge this is the ONLY Classic 1 produced in that hair to my specifications. The Classic 1 comes with a travel tube, as I had commissioned it to be my travel brush. Funnily enough, the box shows a “Classic 2” and the brush is marked “1”. I believe, however, it is indeed a “2”, at least that is what I had ordered at the time.

I asked both of these to be made with 25/50mm knots, which means the Classic is basically a Chubby 1.5! 

These brushes are well kept treasures in mint condition.

No trades. No price reduction. Take it or leave it.

Each sells for $300 incl. shipping with tracking. CONUS and Paypal only.

PM me if interested.
