Gentlemen my Simpsons Chubby 3 Manchurian in Butterscotch and Wee Scott in Best arrived from Isle of Man today.

What can I say? My previous brush was a pure Crabtree & Evelyn and before that a freebie from Emirates Airlines (synthetic Omega)

Upon contact of brush to face I thought this:
Its like a wall of badger hair rubbing against my face. I'll never bowl lather again. I wonder what 2 band feels like or Rooney/M&F Finest.

Great pictures too! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the enigma that is Simpson's Manchurian.

If anyone's wondering about picture quality and the bokeh (creamy background). These are unedited. 

I broke out the Canon EF 135 f/2 L for these photos. Lately I've had the zoom 24-105 on. But I thought the 135L would do these brushes photo-justice. 

Thanks Sharpshine.

Alas , my thoughts may not be very worthwhile since I have very little to compare it to.

Str8 Shaver, I can't get over hw dense it is.
It's easily the capacity of two medium sized brushes.

I'm sure that you are more than capable of describing what it feels like and how it works. That would be perfect. Biggrin Thumbup

I know, it makes it an even tougher decision... I really think I will restrain myself for the moment and rationally think it over before making a call on it. After seeing these gorgeous pictures it is really tough not to whip out the debit card and email Mark!

I used Opus 1870. Can you believe we don't have any proper shaving brands here in Dubai. No SoS, ToOBS, G.F.Trumper, D.R.Harris or TF&H. It's because people here maintain a beard mostly.

It certainly is. Id wanted a chubby 2 but now it may feel like a downgrade comparatively speaking.

Thank you sir. I spent a good two weeks reading about the chubby series. How dense it is. How it is a completely different brush and lather experience.

Isn't the SoTd thread where you list your shave routine and stuff used?

Don't recall seeing too many pictures. Unless you're referring to something else.
