Yes, I have a aTulip 2 super badger. It’s a great brush which I always enjoy using. Simpson is an iconic brand int the world of wet shaving. At the moment I own 5 Simpson brushes: Tulip 2 super, Colonel X2L best, Wee Scot best, QE II Jubilee Manchurian and Duke 2 pure. In terms of value for money quality and performance I’d say the Colonel is hard to beat.
Can you send a pic and link of your Colonel please?

Meaning it's quite good. I have it in Best Badger and it's my best brush for bowl lathering creams.



Runner up is the Simpson Captain 2. I love it.

Took the plunge and went for the Polo 8 in the Silvertip. Simpson still charged for postage too!!!


Any tips for maintaining the brush? Read online about shampooing it???

Some people use shampoo but I'm not convinced , I periodically soak in borax solution or white vinegar to break down the soap / scale. Depends on how hard your water is.
