Super Badger Shaving Brushes

This grade of badger brushes have remarkable hair structure and hair softness, a great all around brush for soaps or creams. There is a range in terms manufactures use that fall in this category, like Shavemac "finest". We feel Simpson's "best" grade of brushes are technically right up here as well.

Super Badger Shaving Brushes Reviews
Seriously Lame Packaging!
Semogue Owners Club Super Badger Shaving Brush, Cherry Handle I bought this for my husband for Christmas. I cannot believe for $95 that this brush comes in the same chintzy plastic tube that you would find at CVS. The quality of the brush seems fine (I haven't given it to him yet so cannot speak to his user experience). I wish I had time to return it for another brush that comes in nicer packaging that looks higher end and aligns with the price of the item!
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.
A brush above the rest
Simpson Chubby 3 Super Badger Shaving Brush CH3S The best brush I've ever used, This thing is huge but very tightly knotted, holds a lot of lather
Well-designed and comfy. Tad smelly
Vulfix Turnback Super Badger Travel Brush This is a great travel brush. Packs well. Well designed. Feels great and does the job. However, after about half a dozen shaves, it’s still smelly, although getting less so every shave. This is the first brush I’ve had where the animal smell was as strong out of the box and lasted as long. Minus a star for that. However, the design is top marks.
Very good travel brush
Vulfix Turnback Super Badger Travel Brush At first I was I was a bit skeptical about the size, but it works just fine. The super badger is excellent and it performs quite well. I would recommend it for travel.
Worth it
Simpson Persian Jar 3 Super Badger Shaving Brush PJ3 I was not sure it was worth the money to buy a Simpson's brush, but it is. They are a level above; go for it.
