The high quality "Best" Badger Hair that Simpsons uses for the Colonel X2L is slightly stiffer than most meaning that it's great for exfoliating and especially good with shaving soap. 

Simpsons has been making handmade shaving brushes in England since 1919, it fully deserves its reputation as the world's premier shaving brush manufacturer.


Wet the brush in warm water, flick off excess water. Gently swirl the brush in shaving cream or soap and create a rich, creamy lather.

Paint the lather onto your bearded area. Don't splay the brush hairs.

Once finished, rinse the brush under running water, flick excess water off, gently dab dry with a towel and store the brush upside down on a stand where air can circulate around the brush.

Never use hot water on the brush. Hot water will damage the hair and can lead to the hair expanding and splitting the handle.

WOW, what a brush, probably the finest best badger hair brush on the planet, and at this price, you can't go wrong. The size & shape of the handle in my opinion are as close to perfection as you can get. Looked after this brush will last a lifetime..

Fabulous quality, densely packed shaving brush with very soft tips yet sufficient back bone and a classic, ergonomic handle shape. Probably the best entry into Simpson's Best Badger brushes and a true all rounder. As for the service; this was even better than the brush and thus far, the best I have received in the many purchases made since joining the great DE shaving train. Great to be able to buy from a proper Scottish company!

I'll make it easy for you:
You want to buy a Simpson brush; you want one with a bit of backbone but also soft on your face; not too big, not too small; nice handle that's easy to grip...
Just get one of these! Excellent brush

I bought this my 8th Simpson brush and I can honestly say it is easily one of the best. The shape and feel of the knot straight out the box is wonderful and the handle design means you have the option to bowl or face lather. It has great density as well, not as dense as a Duke or Chubby but more so than a Tulip or an Emperor. Whether you are new to shaving brushes or not you could not possibly go wrong with this.
The service was, as always, perfect.
