    Not a model, you can see the pilot and navigator, here is another of a Harrier.

    Vulfix Simpsons Shaving Brush

    Yes, agreed. The problem is mine, there is a mismatch between this very soft and floppy brush that spreads and has no backbone and a firmer brush which is my personal preference, as pointed out earlier, a blend of bristle and badger or a synthetic brush would be my next purchase.

    Vulfix Simpsons Shaving Brush

    @kooshman7 Thank you for the advice. I originally thought that I may be expecting too much or that there was something wrong with my particular brush, from the experience of others it looks to be a common problem that they are a bit of a letdown and once I feel let down by a brand the entire...

    I have just taken a closer look at Ajkels brush and I see that it is Bristle and Badger, mine is Pure Badger. I am no expert but perhaps the bristle is helping the brush stay in shape and stops the flop.

    Vulfix Simpsons Shaving Brush

    The head of yours looks quite diffrent to mine which is splayed out and really soft, your looks to be much better. I am sure that there are plenty of people out there who prefer a soft and floppy brush for shaving, I am just not one of them, I have now tried it with a soap puck, a cream and...

    That Omega is a nice looking brush, significantly lower price than this brush too. Thanks for the tip

    Vulfix Simpsons Shaving Brush

    MM doesnt vary that much I agree on the density, it just feels a little loose for me, a bit floppy, I am used to brushes with a bit more substance that doesnt splay too much and also I cannot see me using it, I have my old bristle brush lined up for the morning.

    Thank you, I didnt know it but I must be one of those guys that likes a bit of a backbone to the brush. To be honest, this experience is moving any future purchase towards a synthetic, not that keen on the Chinese badger farming practices at the best of times.

    Thank you, I will take that advice on board, I now think that the brush is ok for use, I had just expected something a bit better.

    Vulfix Simpsons Shaving Brush

    Thanks for the link ukobke, the experience of others is comparable to my own and I am coming to the conclusion of it is what it is. The brush just feels a bit floppy and loose and I had expected something really good when compared to my very old bristle brush or a cheap chinese import. I...

    Thats fine Eclipse, thank you for the contribution. I am beginning to think that my expectations were too high.

    Vulfix Simpsons Shaving Brush

    I would welcome opinions on Vulfix Simpsons Badger Shaving Brush. I have had one for a while but being happy with my other brushes I had left it in the pack. I have used it just four times and think the performance is inferior to a cheap chinese brush and even a 30 year old bristle brush. The...
