An often overlooked gem of a brush! The Simpson 56, like all of its 50 series siblings, has a well-proportioned handle that is unique to the series. I found the handles on this "lesser known" series of top quality hand-made British shaving brushes to be absolutely superb! And the Simpson best badger knot is richly dense, with plenty of backbone, and oh soooo soft! I went for the 56 -- right in the "sweet spot" size for this face-lathering wet shaver. The stock picture of the 56 does not do justice to the incredible "bloom" that will develop after only a few uses! Yet, even with an elegant bloom, this little beauty stays firm, focused, yet luxurious and never floppy. Larger knots (for me) just put lather all over the place. I much prefer the directness and control of the 56, yet there is absolutely no compromise in comfort and effectiveness in applying the lather and preparing the skin and whiskers for a splendid wet shave! If you haven't checked out the Simpson 50 series best badger brushes, do yourself a big favor and do so. Maggard Razors has a very complete selection of Simpson and other fine brushes in their wonderful shop!
