Another superb Simpsons brush. Although engraved "Best Badger" it's actually a two band for which you would normally pay a lot more. An excellent all round brush that will make a fine job of any approach you want to adopt. Excellent with soaps, creams and different methods of face lathering. Tips quite firm when new but will soon soften up. 21mm knot still produces a brush head that is large enough and easy to control.
