Simpsons Duke Best Badger Brush (D3)


A brush worthy of the aristocracy!

A brush worthy of the aristocracy!

Another impressive and popular Shaving Brush, handmade in England and densely filled with Best Badger Hair.

Established in 1919 Simpson & Co continue to make the world’s finest hand made shaving brushes using techniques that have not changed since the firm was founded. Each handle is turned on a lathe, polished and then filled by hand with a “knot” of fine quality selected Chinese badger hair. The hair for each knot is sorted, weighted and tied by a skilled craftsman who then carefully cements the knot into the handle. The handle is then etched with the name of the brush.

Bristle Diameter: 45 mm
Bristle Length: 45 mm
Overall Length: 95 mm
Handle Diameter: 35 mm

This really is the height of shaving brush quality. Buy yourself a piece of English luxury today!

Please note. The bristle length stated is a guide height and may vary a few millimetres. Don’t forget that these are individual, hand crafted brushes and not some mass produced exact replicas of each other!

    After using this brush for a number of weeks this is my go to soap brush.
    I was looking for something similar to my Chubby 1 but with a bigger handle. This is it, a great soap brush that works well with creams too without being a complete lather hog.

    This brush to me is as near perfect as a shaving brush gets, plenty of backbone, works perfect with soap or creams, beautiful finish. 10/10

  3. Suhail Mulla

    I can’t believe how much I was missing from my shave routine until I got this brush. Recieved this today and could not wait to use it and boy did it deliver and more. This brush lathers like a dream. I give " The Duke" my stamp of approval and recommendation.

    The ‘Duke 3’ in Best Badger was the first brush I bought after a cheap unbranded badger brush and it’s a world apart. I’ve been using this brush on a daily basis for the last five months and it copes well with everything I do. I started off bowl lathering and it works well with that but it works much better when face lathering, that is applying cream or soap directly onto the brush and then going straight to my face to build the lather.

    When new, the tips were quite scritchy but it’s softened down with use and still feels very luxurious on my face with plenty of backbone – Just how I like it. I’ve considered buying another brush, something like a Chubby 2 but then I just pick up my Duke 3, use that and realise that I don’t need another brush. I may want one but I don’t actually need it.

    This is a great Simpsons brush and it doesn’t carry the very high price tag of some of the other models. It’s not the cheapest either and it’s worth every penny.
