BEST best badger

This was my first brush. As such, I didn't know how good it was. I bought the tiny Simpsons Wee Scot 2, which was TOO SMALL. I bought a Simpsons Chubby 2 in Best, which was TOO BIG. I got an antique Erskine T-500 travel brush, which was okay but nothing special, and a RV Shaving Badger & Blade 2011 special limited edition in Super badger. Of them, the Simpsons Colonel X2L and the B&B 2011 are the best. I take them in turns. But since the B&B 2011 was a limited edition of 75 brushes, you'll just have to go with the Colonel X2L. It's my go-to brush, anyway.

Very Nice Brush

This is my first Simpson and it won't be my last. Handle has a nice, heavy feel and is easy to hold. Lathers soaps and creams equally well, face or bowl. Very nice brush for the price.

Great Brush!

When I initially started wet shaving, I had a cheap Art of Shaving badger brush found in one of their sample packs. I thought it would do the job for a long time, but after losing some badger hairs from just rinsing it with water. It was time to get serious. After doing some initial research with Omega and Edwin Jagger, which are great brushes as well, I decided to go with Simpson. I narrowed it down between the Commodore X2 and the Colonel. A quick and very helpful chat with Eric. Even though the knot and brush measurements were the same, I decided to go with the Colonel because the handle was a bit taller and thinner. Upon receiving the brush I was amazed at its tight knot and how soft it was. It's a great brush and if I ever need another one, I wouldn't hesitate with a Simpson. Do yourself a favor and get one!
