Sweat Spot

This brush hits the right configuration for my preferences: small, allowing for accuracy; good loft and backbone; and nice balance of soft and firm in the best badger bristles. It’s my new favourite brush: Simpson’s quality in affordable scale.

Great balance of water-retention and precision

If you’re not looking to piling a ton of lather on your face like you would with say...a Chubby 2, a lot of this brush feels just right. Just luxurious enough to remind you it’s best badger, and also enough backbone to load harder, triple-milled British soaps. It’s built well, and feels sturdy to the hand. The overall size keeps it manageable when you don’t want a mess of lather all over your pucks or the smaller shave bowls. I find the loft; knot; handle size to be...just right. This brush is a favourite of mine.

Upgrading made a huge difference

I just ordered this brush along with an assortment of other shaving gear to upgrade my shaving kit. I was previously using a cheap Omega Boar Brush that I got at a Shopper's Drug Mart. The tips of it had split, and the ends were very soft because of it, but it was a very sparse brush and I was having a really hard time getting a decent lather. So after putting it off for over a year, I finally decided to cave and get a nice brush (along with a new razor, shaving cream, etc.). I cannot believe the difference that it has made having a decent brush. The quality is immediately evident in the build -- from the handle to the badger hair -- and that quality translates to performance. It took a while to get used to the difference between using a boar bristle brush (which has more backbone/is springier) and a badger brush (which is floppier and more of a lather hog) but the difference in the quality of my lather has been significant. Impressively so. I was torn between this brush and a couple of other Simpsons at a similar price point, but ended up going with this based on positive reviews and recommendations I read online at a few different shave forums. This brush definitely lived up to my expectations, and was the piece I was most impressed by of all the products I ordered.

Simpsons Berkeley 46 Best

Excellent brush. More floppy than others Simpson(Commodore/Duke), but just enough backbone for soap lathering. Like it for my soft soap(Proraso) and creams. this is a keeper, and a basic to have in your shaving equipment. This is my go to brush.
