My daughter gifted me with a T3 from BullGoose last Father’s Day. I like it. I really enjoy using this synthetic brush.
The Trafalgar 3 handle is much more comfortable for me than the handle on the Chubby 2 synthetic. The fibers feel different. While the Chubby’s Platinum grade are perhaps “silkier”, the Sovereign grade fibers feel more badger-like. This is the most natural feeling synthetic brush I’ve tried.
If you’re looking for a brush with the properties and convenience of a synthetic knot that feels more like badger hair AND is a pleasure in general to look at, hold and use, look no further. The Simpson T3 is the real deal.
This brush is very good and has good backbone.
As always Bullgoose service was excellent.
I have all three of these brushes, the T1, T2, and now the T3. Used the T3 for the first time today and it did not disappoint. It exceeded what I was expecting. Once I loaded the brush with good old Arko soap I never had to reload again doing a 3 pass shave. At these prices I might just order another complete set for the future.
The first things I noticed about this brush were the weight and height. I’d expected a somewhat diminutive brush with a large diameter knot. Turns out this brush is actually a couple millimeters taller than my Kent BK4 but with the much bigger knot. Handle style and weight are absolutely solid in the hand.
No problem eating up some soap, easily enough for my usual two passes. Simply pleasurable on the face. Just really nice. Clean-up and dry time were easy and fast, as I’d expect for a synthetic.
Not synthetic fan or user, so can not compare to others.
Looks nice and makes a fine lather.
As always Phil is tops to deal with.
