Hi Gents:

They don't get much better than this. Here is a Simpson CH3 3-band in Super. It has everything you'd expect: a big 31.5mm knot, soft tips, incredible density and backbone, great, luxurious scrub and no scritch at all. The workmanship is excellent too - it has a beautifully-shaped knot. The only drawback is that I don't have the box.

It retails for $314 - your price, including conus shipping is $250. SOLD

Great brush! How would you say the Super 3-band compares to the 2-band?

Hi Greg: I don't have a Chubby 3 in 2-band (it's coming soon). I can't imagine anyone needing more backbone than this brush provides - it's ultra-ultra dense. The tips are very soft, too. If you like big brushes and have never experienced a Chubby 3, you're in for a treat!

Greg, here are my thoughts on the Chubby 3 three vs two band.

Three band:
Über dense fine silvertip knot with soft tips and just a hint of scritch when new, none once broken in.

The flow thru is not the best but it's a Simpson chubby so that should not be a concern if you are thinking about a large chubby.

The splay is perfect, not crazy big, but cheek hugging big. Plenty of control with the lather, I don't ever end up with lather where is shouldn't be.

Two band:
Über dense knot but less dense than the three band. No scritch whatsoever, Simpson's two band hair as of late is very soft.

Better flow thru than the three band.

Very little splay on the face which makes the brush feel smaller than it's three band sister.

I have said this before numerous times and of course ymmv but, I firmly believe the Chubby 3 in three band super to be the finest shaving brush ever made.

Hope this helps some.
