Well built I think will

Well built I think will last long time it is not as soft as I thought it would be but think it will soften with time

The Commodore X3 used to be a great brush. I used one for several years and it was,in my opinion, perfect. (It had a green label and may have been made before Simpson's was acquired.) So, I decided to buy another. Bad decision. Used the new one for a couple of months and it began to shed bristles-a LOT of bristles. I contacted Simpson under the warranty. The experience was very pleasant and they replaced the brush. They even threw in a jar of shaving cream. Unfortunately, the brush is even worse than the one it replaced. After 6 weeks it sheds at least a dozen bristles with each shave. As background, I have been using shaving brushes for around 15 years and have never had this problem with any other brush.

Updated review

Greg S. here again to update my prior 3-star review. I asked WCS for a replacement brush and they sent it. Comparing the two, is already clear that this brush is awesome and the other one was defective from the start. My new Commodore X3 has only shed a hair or two while the other one started off shedding at least a few hairs every time it was touched, culminating in the shedding I wrote about earlier. Anyway, I wanted to update my review to say that WCS happily stood by their product, so if you want one of these brushes, you can buy without risk.

Lather face with brush, comb shed hairs off of face, then shave

The brush is very comfortable and affordable. It works up an excellent lather. Simpson has clearly used quality badger hair. However, like many others (see especially the reviews on this brush) the shedding my brush has done is unacceptable. It lost a hair here or there for the first month. Since then--and I'm on month 4--it's been 10-20 hairs per shave. Some small amount of shedding with new brushes may be normal, but this is clearly too much. Simpson needs to address this issue before brushes leave the shop.

This brush makes you want to shave more!

Soft with great loft and handle and puts down a great thick lather over your beard. Tends to hold a lot of lather so you need to rinse it thoroughly. For a brush of this quality and size it's a steal at this price.
