Alexander Simpson first started turning out brushes in London's East End in 1919. His growing business moved and innovated over the years, but the heart -- and art -- of handcrafted brushes hasn't changed. Check out this excellent brush: Simpsons Berkeley Best Badger Shaving Brush 46B.
The Berkeley 46 is a fine brush at a fine price. It's packed with Simpson Best Badger with good density. Best badger hair is high quality hair with creamy tips and a dark band. Better than pure but not quite silvertip, this hair will give you everything you are looking for in badger. From the excellent water absorption to the soft face feel, you can't go wrong with this tool. It will whip up a frothy lather for multiple passes.
On the smaller side of brushes, the handle is still comfortable and looks good to boot. It is lathe-turned, faux ivory with a non-slip bevel to help with grip in wet environments. And it is stamped with the Simpson logo so you know you are getting quality.
This brush is also available in Pure Badger hair for a more economical choice.
