You're the cautious, traditional type; you're not going to trust your face to just any old shaving brush. You want something with history on its side, something that's proven itself against the test of time and many trials along the way. You want a brush that's got a stiff upper lip, for your upper lip. What you're looking for is Simpsons, the company that worked its way up from a modest operation in the East End of London, survived being bombed out during the Blitz, and remains today an unruffled, stalwart representation of the proper British shave. There's nothing fancy or frou-frou about Simpsons; they're sticking to traditional badger brushes the way a man sticks to his neighborhood pub. This is shaving, simply done properly, the way they've done it since 1919.

Classic Brush!
Simpson Tulip 2 Super Badger Shaving Brush T2 This is one of Simpsons classic options from an iconic traditional brush maker. The hair is 3-band 'super' badger that is attractive with excellent backbone, soft tips with some scrub. Precisely what I wanted as one who face lathers hard soaps! Out of the box, there was a bit of 'badger funk' that dissipated after a few lathers and the brush has lost very few hairs.

So how does this one perform compared to other Simpsons options? In terms of density and backbone, I rank it between my very dense Classic 2 (which has more backbone because of lower loft) and my Chubby 1 in best (and a very nice example of Simpsons best). The Tulip is definitely denser than my Duke 2 or 59. Overall, just the thing for face lathering! Flow-through, as expected, is more like a Chubby or Classic (very greedy brushes) than my other Simpsons.

The handle is elegant. The edge does catch extra lather and it fits very comfortably in my hand. Because of the size and how I place my hands, this brush could also work well for bowl lathering.

There are definitely more reasonably priced Simpsons that are great brushes. But this Tulip is definitely worth the price for someone who appreciates a very high quality, elegant smaller to medium sized brush.
Great brush, exactly what I was looking for
Simpson Major Super Badger Shaving Brush M1 I have thoroughly enjoyed many of my Simpson brushes and currently own a Chubby 1 in super, a Duke 3 in best, a Classic 2 in best, a Wee-Scot (in best), a Classic 1 synthetic, and my newest a Major in super. I briefly owned a Case in best.

While the Wee-Scot is great for what it is, I wanted a little larger, less scritchy brush for travel. My first attempt at a new travel brush was the Case in best. I liked the size of the brush and was happy with how it lathered, however it felt too scritchy for me. It seems that the badger hair in best for the both the Classic 2 and Duke 3 is of a higher grade than that of the Wee-Scot and the Case.

My next attempt was to try the Classic 1 synthetic. The Classic 1 synthetic is a good travel size for me, bristles are extremely soft (maybe too soft) with good backbone and drys quickly. But this brush was also not for me. It forced me to smash the brush against my face as it would not splay at all. Two replacement travel brushes now and neither was right for me. I should have bought the Major in super to begin with.

I received the Major yesterday and used it today. It is exactly what I was looking for. The knot has begun to bloom nicely after the first use. This brush has good backbone and good face feel for me. I believe it will also dry quickly, however I cannot yet verify that as I did not stay home to see if how quickly it would dry. The actual brush, its style and its handle (travel case) all scream out "high quality precision brush". I should have bought this brush in the first place and would have both saved money and time since I ended up with it anyway.

Like razors, blades and soaps, brushes are highly personal in what is desired, but for me I have found my ideal travel brush. YMMV.
