Well worth the price!

I have been using the Simpson Commodore X2 shaving brush for more than a month now and I am thrilled with the purchase. It is exactly as advertised. The best badger hair performs really well, nice and thick and holds water well. You really need to store the brush properly to get it to dry overnight. It also whips up a great lather and I don't need to use as much cream or soap as I use with other brushes. One interesting note is that a card in the box recommended painting strokes rather than the swirling method saying that it can damage the brush. Lastly, West Coast Shaving is great to deal with and very prompt in getting my package to me.

Great brush for great price

So far, I enjoy this brush more and more with each use. It continues to get better and better through use. I highly recommend the simpson line of brushes to anyone!

Lather in seconds ...

... with this quality-tipped brush! I have tried it with a French shaving soap from the drug store, an Italian brand at a higher price point, and an English brand at a still-higher price point.It worked quickly with all three. But the most satisfying was with the English soap. I follow up with a very soothing balm from Provence

Lathers Well with Hard Water

Bought the brush recently after many years with a sub-standard drug store brush. When matched with a good quality soap, e.g. Col. Conk unscented, I got an excellent lather quickly. This has definitely been worth the cost for the brush.


Perfect Brush For Me

First of all, let me say that I've learned that there are people with shaving brush collections who have bought/sold/traded every brand and every model and go to meet-ups and things. I'm grateful to them for putting all that information out for my education, but I am not one of those people. I've had 3 or 4 brushes in my life, starting with a badger brush that was my father's. I've had a couple of cheap ones that I couldn't identify and most recently an Art of Shaving pure badger brush with a very small knot and a cheap plastic handle that came in a gift set, but retails for about the same price as this Simpson. I wanted to buy myself a good brush this year and in my heart wanted a Simpson and was willing to pay for it, so I read reviews here and at BandB, which both helped and thoroughly confused me. I liked this brush on spec, but was a bit worried about the price compared to similar spec Simpson brushes that were nearly twice as much (like the Fifty Seven). I wanted a good brush. A call to WCS helped me decide. Since I can't see and handle them locally, it's an essential service that wins my loyal return business for all shaving products. I also considered a few other well respected brands, but went with Simpson Commodore X2. A few weeks in and I couldn't be happier. It's soft enough, but has much more backbone than anything else I've handled. I lost a hair or two in the first couple of shaves and nothing since. I had read about horrible badger smell, but I can't relate. There was a bit out of the box, if I buried my nose in it, but it was subtle and not worrisome at all. It is badger hair, after all, what do you expect it to smell like? By the second shave it smelled like the soap I use. Either I got a good one or I'm just not as sensitive as people who have complained about that. The size is perfect for me. Easy to handle, doesn't smother my face, I can get it down in a bowl. I love the handle shape, which is one of the things I chose on. That little indention near the heal makes it easy to hang onto, even if my hands are soapy and it keeps it from sliding into the bowl when I rest on the edge. I wouldn't want it any bigger or smaller. I wouldn't want it any softer or stiffer. I wouldn't change a thing about it. I worried about regretting not spending more, but I know now that I bought the right brush at the right price for me. Awesome quality, perfect form and function. Lots of lather from hard soaps (Mitchel's Fat Wool, Pre de Provence), but have tried it with a cream too with no complaints. It's exactly what I hoped it would be and I'm going to use it until I've worn it completely out, if that's possible. I hope this review helps someone decide one way or another. I'm sure that I'm missing something, but I'm blissfully unaware and unconcerned about what it might be. I own a fine hand-made English shaving brush and it's part of a process that turned an unpleasant administrative task into some pampering man-time for me.
