Simpsons shaving brushes are filled with 100% Chinese badger hair. Badger hair has been used for more than two centuries to make the finest traditional English shaving brushes. The Simpsons Duke D1 is the smallest brush in the range. The Duke range is characterised by the short wide handle. This handmade shaving brush is densely filled with best badger hair and housed in a lathe-turned imitation ivory handle. Best badger hair is flexible and a good quality which creates a lather far superior to that resulting from the use of a bristle brush.
