Simpson Chubby 3 Extra Super (aka Manchurian)
This morning's shave:
Joris OC Razor
Gillette Super Thin Blade
Martin De Candre Soap
Simpson Chubby 3 Extra Super
Shower shave and face lather
DR Harris Pink A/S
GFT Coral Skin Food
Went with my usual routine
3 passes (WTG, XTG and AGT)
Then I remembered I was going to take a few pictures!
Jumped out of the shower, wiped off enough water to pick up my camera and took a few quick shots.
SWMBO of course thought I was crazy!
Anyway here is the CH 3 ES still loaded with lather after 3 passes...
And in bloom...
With his pal Joris...
The CH 3 ES preformed well, lathering the MdC with ease and enough for well more than my usual 3 passes.
It felt large on the face, but not unwieldily.
It was dense, but not as dense as my current post Vulfix Chubby 3 brushes.
Flow through was much better than the post Vulfix Chubbies.
With the longer loft I expected this to exhibit little in the way of backbone... I was wrong.
I expected it to feel and behave more like a 3 band super, but it felt closer to a 2 band.
The long loft and backbone reminded me of my HMW Plisson brushes.
There was definite sensation from this brush (but not gel-like as with my Thater and Rooney Heritage XL brushes)
The CH3 ES definitely had scritch, but definitely not scratch.
The tips on this brush remind my of my Rooney Finest brushes.
In fact, the only brush closer to a Rooney Finest in feel... IMO... is a Rooney Finest!!!
I am looking forward to comparing it with the current CH 3 Manchurian...
