Face Lathering

Improved density and backbone from my Duke 3 that I had for 4 years. The handle is small and not good for bowl lathering; however, I'm a face latherer and knew this going in. The best badger hair is soft and has the right amount of scritch for exfoliating. It's more bulb shaped than the Duke 3 I had. Great value for this brush.

Great brush

As previously noted, the Chubby is a well established icon of shaving brushes. Simpson quality, thick knot, holds plenty of shave cream for extra passes or clean up. That's what you get. Obviously the price for a good simpsons brush is higher than for other brands. If you're looking for a good brush to move up from a starter or to get started wet shaving, you may consider getting a silvertip WCS brush for half the price. You get a lot of brush for the money with the WCS products. But if you've already got a good every day brush, and your looking to expand the collection, you really can't go wrong adding a simpsons Chubby to the roatation. If you're going to stick with wet shaving, you'll want one eventually either way.

Totally Excellent!

First, Thank you Kim for all your help, especially for selecting an outstanding brush! This is my fifth Simpson's, so I must be a huge fan. Others still in the stable are a Duke 2, Classic 2 and 57. My preference is to face lather hard soaps. This Chubby 1 in best fits in well. On the face it feels a bit less dense than my Classic 2 because of the lower loft. It is decidedly more dense than my Duke or 57. Although this Chubby is considered as best grade! It has very soft tips a d could classify as super grade (or silver tip in other lines). This is a great soap brush! Like my Classic, this Cuubby takes a lot of fuel and, as expected, it tends to hold onto the lather. It still provides enough lather for 4/5 passes if wanted. Definitely a keeper!

The Cadillac of Brushes

Like the title of the review this brush is the equivalent of a big, heavy V-8 chugging machine. It needs a ton of soap to generate a lather, costs a small fortune to acquire & but envelops you in luxury and comfort. It's considered an icon for a reason - and like all true icons has it's "haters". Sure, the Duke is cheaper, the Colonels and 50 series more accessible - but you'll always feel that you somehow compromised. And life is too short for that friends. Get a Chubby.
