This is the new offering in the Commodore line of the Simpsons brushes now made by Vulfix. The brush is made with Best Badger hair grade. The Commodore line offers an entry-level brush that brings quality and performance at a very reasonable price.

Rooney brushes are well known among wet shavers for their quality.  Like Simpsons, Rooneys are made with a much denser knot than most traditional brushes.  I only recently started adding Rooney to my collection and have been surprisingly impressed with how well these brushes perform. 


Simpsons Chubby 3 Best Badger Shaving Brush

Since the news of the transfer of ownership of the Simpsons brand over to Vulfix, many have speculated about what the newly produced Simpsons brushes would look like and whether or not the quality would be the same as before.  I have been collecting various models of Simpsons brushes for the past two years, and I use these brushes regularly and really enjoy the characteristics of Simpsons that makes them unique from other traditional shaving brushes. Having several Vulfix brand brushes as well, I was hoping that the new owners of the brand would be able to produce a new brush by the same standards that would be worthy of carrying the Simpsons label on it.  Last week I received one of the new brushes from Lee Cantor ( in one of his first shipments to arrive.


Vulfix Turnback

Right out of the box I was impressed with this shaving brush! This model is commonly rebranded and sold by high-end vendors, such as Truefitt & Hill and The Art of Shaving, for more than double the price of the original Vulfix model. My brush is stamped with the custom logo from Lee's Safety Razors; however, Lee prices this brush the same as an Original Vulfix.  Upon opening the blue presentation box, it was obvious this brush is very well made and easily surpassed what I expected for the asking price.


Simpsons Harvard 6 Shaving Brush

The Harvard is not one of the more common Simpson models that you see around. This particular shaving brush came from an old stock of Simpsons from several years ago. This was back in the days of the Manchurians, before the buzz about shedding and quality issues came about. This brush is the largest of the Harvard models. The knot is large and extremely dense, so that it hardly blooms at all even after intense lathering.

Q & A

I have been experiencing a lot of redness after my shaves. Do I need a more aggressive razor or a sharper blade?
