One of the modest Simpsons, a Best Badger with a 20mm knot. Simpsons Best are very soft when dry and only a little bit scritchy when lathering, but it does notice in comparison with the higher priced Simpsons. The 45mm loft makes this quite a small brush which will appeal to many face latherers. The knot is dense enough for all purposes. The usual quality one expects although it has shed the odd hair. Less glamourous compared with some other relatives but a great workhorse for a reasonable price.
