As some of you know I have fallen in love with the current batch of Simpson 2 Band hair: Very soft tips, resilient hair with just the right amount of backbone, perfect for face lathering both creams and soaps. I have been adding over the last few months regular Simpson stock as well as custom brushes: M7 and an Eagle G3 (on order). I believe these brushes to be amongst the best 2 band brushes out there for those who cannot tolerate scritch. I have also other excellent 2 Bands (Thäter, Rooney Heritage, M&F, TGN, WSP) but I grab for the Simpsons most often because of the combination of excellent hair and classic handle design with varying knot sizes and density.

The obvious question "which I do like the most" is not easy to answer, but my favorites are: M7, E3, Chubby 2, PJ2, Duke 3.

Wow. Just, wow.

If I wanted to try a Simpsons 2-Band Super without paying their prices, which knot/company would you say most closely resembles their hair?

The "best" comparable choice is a Thäter 2 Band... The best low(er) cost 2 Band that I have so far encountered are the new Wet Shaving Product (WSP) 2 Bands/Finest (Monarch or Prince) if you want to stay below $80. TGN knots are more of a gamble and typically not as soft.

That is a fantastic collection.

I use only 2-band brushes and I would love to get my hands on some of those, especially the M7
