- Inferior quality for top price.
It turned out to be a pretty ordinary brush of inferior quality for the price asked.
On the third month of twice a week use, the brush began shedding hair. First just a few strings and then progressively more and more hair started coming off. The handle is non-proportionally small and difficult to hold – therefore easy to slip during use.
To clarify – I’m an artist and if there is one thing that I know very well is how to care for brushes. I own an extensive collection of very expensive and high quality artistic brushes and knowledge of proper care and handling is paramount.
Seven months after the purchase of SIMPSONS Best Badger Shaving Brush CHUBBY 1, I had to buy another shaving brush because it was not possible to use the SIMPSONS anymore – it was leaving a bunch of animal hair on my face. This time I put my money on Geo. F. Trumper Super Badger Shaving Brush: SB5 in hope it might be better.
- First time badger brush
At first I was a bit disappointed with the later I got from the time spent working the soap (it was fairly thin, trialling Cella and Mitchell's Wool Fat).
I ended up (through trial and error) finding out that my brush was far more loaded with water than I thought so now squeeze out absorbed water then lather for 2 - 3 times longer than my boar brush and provides a great lather for 3 passes.
As far as the Chubby line goes, if you have good dexterity, you should be good with the Chubby 1 however if you find smaller utilities a little difficult then go for the Chubby 2.
- Great Performing Brush!
I now understand the meaning of "Densely" packed brush!
This translated to both a softer feel on my face as well as a "Lather Monster". Generating lather out of creams and soaps are an ease with this brush!
It is quite small and "Stumpy" so it may slip out of your hands if your not careful!
This brush encouraged me to purchase other "Simpsons" brushes as they are Top notch and a good quality product!
You wont be disappointing!
- A lotta, lotta brush
Ignore the Best grade moniker, Simpsons hair is as good as, or better than any Silvertip IMO. Few other brushes will pack as much high quality hair in as Simpson. That, and the fact they're still handmade in the UK, is why they're pricey.
Soap users may need to adjust technique to begin with, as the Chub is very sponge-like and may take longer to lather up. I still prefer boars with soaps, but for a cream brush, I don't think there's anything better than a Chubby.
