Simpsons Duke 2 in Best

Semogue 1800

M&F Blonde 2 Band

if I try to purchase a brush from you, please send me a link to this thread. I used the Duke 2 Band for this morning's shave and it was lovely. I have always wanted a Simpsons 2 Band and a Vie Long 2 Band as well. Both are quite soft.

Hi Dave

Wow! A47 Babeando A47 for your own safety I might not send the brush I'm putting together for you Wink

Me thinks you will be going to more than just one quilting show Smiley_1140

Take care, Mike

Wow, those are nice, and all on the same day? I'd have an aneurysm trying to decide on which to use.

Nice haul!

I like the VL two band. I'll be doing a writeup once I take some pics. AKA...some time in the future.

I'm most intrigued by the Vie Long. I've had an M&F before and tried out the Duke 2 2 band. The Vie Long is really soft.

Can I have your M+F butterscotch 2 band for my brushmas present? I have been very good this year...


That's an incredible haul - I am very jealous.

Excellent brushes , Dave.

I have said a couple times that Vie Long 2 band are EXCELLENT shaving brushes , much better than some other 2 band badger hair out there (and cheaper).

Amazing! And even another 13061. Enjoying those horseys apparently.

I'll look forward to hearing your comparisons of the Simpson 2-band, VL 2-band, and MF Blonde to the SOC 2-band.

It simply never ends!

Fantastic haul! Congrats!

At $6 per brush it's probably only worth one quilting stop. Wink (leaves more $ for shaves)
