Simpson Classic 1 Sovereign Grade Synthetic Fibre Shaving Brush, 21mm
Scotsman Alexander Simpson started production of shaving brushes and male grooming ancillaries in 1919 and is widely regarded as a pioneer in the industry. Manufacturing was originally based in the East end of London but later in Clapham. In 1941, following the loss of his factory during the World War II German Luftwaffe blitz, production was moved to the West Country at the famous Nimmer Mill.
Today Simpson shaving brushes and associated products are manufactured by Progress Shaving Brush (Vulfix) Limited on the historic Isle of Man. They continue to be produced in the traditional way using hand tied knots by time served, skilled workers.
The Classic 1 is a superb smaller sized shaving brush. Offered here in a beautifully finished faux Ivory handle and filled with our uniquely sourced Sovereign Grade synthetic fibre.
The CL1 would serve as a fantastic daily driver or perfect travel companion, in fact it's a brush for all occasions.
Classic CL1 Sovereign Fibre approximate brush specifications:
Overall brush height - 85mm
Handle height - 41mm
Knot loft - 44mm

The ultimate face lathering experience.
To achieve that perfect rich lather we recommend using back & forth or paint brush strokes with all our synthetic bristle offerings.
