This brush may seem a tad on the small side, but it doesn't disappoint. Made by the top quality Simpsons brand, this brush is amazing. It does, like msot badger brushes, have that weird odor when you first receive it, so I recommend a nice practice lather with it to get all those scents out. Awesome beginner brush to give you full control. (Posted on 8/9/2014)
I LOVE Simpson brushes. Their Best Badger offers the perfect combo of backbone, softness, and scratchy that I'm looking for! There is just something about holding a hand made English made brush. I feel like a royal everyday! This brush excels at face lathering and travel! With the travel tube, you are rolling in luxury. The dense knot also dries really fast too. Just buy it!

I bought this brush to use for travel. I wanted a small brush that would not take up too much room in my travel kit, and that's what I got. At first, I was disappointed by it's size. It seemed too small, even for travel. However, once I used it to make a test lather, I was immediately impressed. This little brush packs a huge punch. It's small knot is very densely packed and retains a lot of water. It can easily whip up enough lather for three passes, and it is the perfect size for face lathering (but can also be used for bowl lathering). I love this brush so much that I've been using it daily and it's replace my much larger badger brush.
The only downside to this brush is that when you first use it, it has a funky smell (which is common for animal hair brushes). However, after about 5 uses, that smell went away entirely. It was very easy to break in. (Posted on 6/3/2014)
