OK, so I know these brushes were limited to only 90 pieces and I realize that with a price tag of $250-$350 (depending on source and shipping) there may not be a ton of us who nailed one down, but I thought I'd start a discussion thread for this brush.
For those of you who own one please post pics and let us know what you think of the craftsmanship, size, shape, finish, knot, performance etc.
My first impressions were that I only felt so so about the faux horn, but now that I have mine in hand I am enjoying it a great deal. Looks great. The handle size/shape is fantastic and the knot performs like a champ. This is my fourth Simpsons brush. I have a pre-Vulfix Major and a pair of post Vulfix two-bands in Super (T2 and CH1) to compare it to. I really like the performance of the two-band Simpson knots. My first shave went very well. It lathered my Tallow first Penhaligon's English Fern like a champ. I easily loaded more than enough for a 3 pass shave that removed a full beard (about 3 weeks worth of growth). It felt fantastic and performed like a champ.
So owners, what do you think?
Non-owners what were your impressions with the appearance of this brush?
I'll start off. Here are a few shots of #54
