Simpson Harvard H4 Best Badger Shaving Brush

3 Reviews

The Simpson Harvard is an underrated shaving brush and deserves some attention. It has a similar handle shape to the very popular Persian Jar, but is a little thicker. It's very comfortable to use. Packed with dense Simpson Best hair makes it a stellar performer.

Don't let shedding stop you

Simpson's Harvard H4 has an appealing old world charm. I also own a Chubby 2 in best badger (my first Simpson). They share similar characteristics in that they both shed to an unwanted degree. However, the Harvard while having a smaller knot with less density has shed less. This shedding business may be a nuisance to some, but for me, I've found that over time the joy of lathering up any Simpson transcends all shedding hardships. I will admit though, that Simpson should fix this little problem or discount accordingly. The wonderful aspect of owning a Simpson in my rotation is that I actually look forward to using them... I think you will too.

Simpson Harvard 4 in Best

I have quite a few Simpson Brushes. However,very few of them are in Best.I tend toward the higher grades of knots.However,the handle shape loft and sale price of this brush appealed to me. I am very pleased with the brush so far.Soft tips,good flow through good soap retention. This brush will find a permanent place in my rotation.I really have to learn not to be such a brush snob.


Where's the leather jacket?

Harvard, the burly bad boy of the Simpson line up. Often compared to the delicately curvaceous Persian Jar, the barrel chested Harvard walks around with a PJ on his arm. Stuffed to the gills with Simpson's stellar Best Badger hair, the H4 delivers a knot with specs like the Duke 3, but with a comfortable handle suitable for both face and bowl lathering. Don't let its below the radar profile scare you, the H4 can handle anything you throw at it.
