I gifted my Duke a while back. Rest assured that a Duke 3 Best will have my name on it if there are any crazy Black Friday sales. T’is a great brush.The Duke 3 is one of the top shaving brushes in the world. It makes no nevermind which Simpson you buy right now, because once you've bought a Simpson--- ANY Simpson--- it will only be a matter of time before you get yourself a Duke.
Sign up for the West Coast shaving email notifications. They have a couple of simpson sales per year. I just got another one very recently for a 30% off select Simpson brushes. I didn't bother to check if the Duke 3 was listed in the last one. I got mine from them for 20% off a couple months ago. Totally worth buying those run-of-the-mill Simpson brushes with the ivory handles from them when that are discounted. Save your really special LE purchases direct with Simpson- i think they are overpriced for what they are.I gifted my Duke a while back.
