I'm looking to spoil myself with another brand new brush. Since I already got myself a tiny Wee Scot for face lathering, I'm going to with something much larger for bowl lathering both soaps and creams.
I was thinking a Simpson Chubby (CH1 or CH2 in Best), or a custom Shavemac in Silvertip (26mm-32mm). Also, I was hoping someone could give me an idea whether or not a large knot is difficult to hold in your hands, and whether you need a ton of cream/soap due to its large size. From my perspective, it seems like the Shavemac is the slightly better brand for the money, but the Simpson might be denser/higher quality.
Anybody with recommendations between the two? Thanks for the all the advice!
