    Out of the box.
    In bloom.

    Seems like I've wanted one of these for ever. Something about the shape of the handle, the bullseye on the handle end, the "look" that's what appealed to me. When Lee told me he was getting some in, I went for it.
    I was not disappointed. The badger was every bit as soft as my BK4 but different. It didn't flay out when whipping up a lather, it gave me the most creamy lather I've ever had. I've used it with a couple of soaps now, a triple milled and The Shave Den orange, what a lather! The lather actually came up quicker than with my Rooney. Very soft on the face but moves the lather around faultlessly. I'll give it a shot with a cream shortly but I'm sure it will be fine. I'll give it a few more days before I post a review..or maybe...I just did. I no longer have to :drool but am :D A side note, the Simpson Tulip 2 weighs in at 61.8g, the Rooney style 3 size 1 at 56.6g and the Kent BK4 at 54.2g.

    Lovely brush Steve, thanks for the information...I too have been wanting to try one for some time..:drool :drool

    Looks very nice, Congrats!!

    Did you seal the decal with some clear nail polish?, you may want to if you wish to keep it intact ;)

    You are an evil man, that's all I need is another brush. Oh well. I don't need food this week.

    Jim, I understand the "wait" part. The Tulip 2 is the only brush I'm using now. Be sure to let us know how you like it.

    The wait for it to be delivered is only half of it... It's a Christmas present, so I actually have to wait a month before I can use it. (But of course I'll have to take it out "just to make sure it's not broken" when it arrives :D)

    Who's gonna know if it's been used? It doesn't bloom much - and even if it did, who's gonna know?! Go for it!! :cool:

    I'm looking forward to your comments on how it does with creams.

    Works fine with the creams. So far I've used it with C & E, TOBS and C.O. Bigelow. Some might prefer a taller brush (more loft) for creams but this one works just about like the Kent BK4.

    Nice looking brush! I ordered one a while back and the wait is killing me :sick013 From the looks of your brush though, it looks like it will be well worth it. I hope mine comes before I leave town for the holidays.

    Is this one of Lee's special order brushes he was having made or a stock T2?

    He didn't say, he told me he was getting some in, and not to dilly-dally about paying. :D I think that group is gone! It is a 3 band, I understand that some are 2 banded. Gees! I love this brush! :cool: I hope that yours arrives soon and that you enjoy the experience.
