It's the motion in the ocean! This little brush is all about 'motion in the ocean'! I received my Wee Scot today from West Coast Shaving, and I gotta say that I couldn't be more pleased. First of all, I have to give a tip of the hat to Simpson for removing the badger smell from the brush before shipping it. When I unboxed the brush the first thing I did was smell the brush. Nothing. Awesome! This strengthens the likelihood that all my future brushes will be from Simpson.Next came the shave. I had a day and a half growth when I received it, and I shaved after a hot shower, all the while soaking the Wee Scot in a bowl of hot water. When I unboxed it, the brush was very compact. However, after soaking in a bowl of hot water, the brush fanned out like a peacock fanning its tail. Quite impressive! I proceeded to face lather and was amazed at how much lather this potent little brush was able to generate! I have to commend the brush for having such a strong backbone for being so small. It is perfectly suited for face latherers, like myself.I can't recommend this brush enough, especially for frequent travelers like myself (which is why I purchased this brush in the first place). This brush will fit in the smallest cases, which is perfect for traveling. This brush is so small, in fact, that I have to find an even smaller pill bottle for it. If you're like me and travel frequently and need a small but powerful brush to take along on trips, look no further and "add to cart" post haste! Thanks, West Coast Shaving, for offering this powerful little brush, and for great service and a great price!
