How to use

The brush bristles should be wet (not soaking) before use. Load the loft with soap or cream and apply to the areas to be shaved, using a strong circular motion. This softens the hairs and also raises them ready for shaving.

We strongly recommend the following aftercare for your brush; When finished always rinse the brush under hot water (especially at the base of the bristles) to remove any remaining soap residue which can result in damage to the bristle and cause early shedding of the loft. The brush should then be stored loft facing down to dry. This can be achieved by using a shaving brush stand and prevents the bristles rotting at the base due to moisture.

Recommended for

Both shaving creams and shaving soaps and all skin types.

Grooming tip

Always Store your shaving brush with the loft/bristles poiting down, to allow excess moisture to drain away naturally. This prevents damage caused by damp and helps to extend the life of your brush.

  1. Excellent Brush 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2019

    Lovely well made badger brush. Very dense and holds a lot of water. It's a bit small for some people but for me it's the perfect size. Not too small, not too big. The hair is very soft and the handle very well made.

  2. Simpsons Classic 1 : the big mini 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2016

    The brush arrived in France after 5 working days. The delivery was tracked and required signature. The package kept the items in perfect condition.

    The Classic is quite small brush :
    Knot : 22mm
    Loft : 41mm
    Total height : 81mm

    But thanks to a very densely packed knot, this brush produces a very good lather. The strong backbone is also welcomed for face lathering. It allows a good exfoliation and prevents to put lather where it is not expected.

    Due to its small dimensions, the Classic 1 is compatible with the Simpsons Case Travel Tube New Style.

    To sum up, I am more than happy of the Classic 1 since I can't expect more of a brush.

  3. Simpsons classic 2 shaving brush 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Apr 2014

    Arrived very quickly and well packaged. Maguires listed dimensions for the brush are incorrect, the brush's knot width is 24mm with a loft height of 42mm which is what I was expecting them to be. I don't know where they got their measurements from but they're wildly inaccurate. And the handle dimensions are listed inaccurately too. I purchased from maguires because they were the cheapest but their product information needs changing. Other than that very pleased.

  4. Probably the best Simpsons brush 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Mar 2014

    I have wanted a Classic 2 for sometime as I love it's look and legendary performance, but I could not find a UK stockist until I came across Maguire's; and I was not disappointed. My brush is probably more dense than my Chubby 2 Best, which is saying something. The size of the Classic is perfect for me and the handle sits very comfortably in your hand. I have 10 Simpson brushes and this is in my top two (along with the Chubby). In fact this is so good I have sold my Simpson Case and am going to sell my Duke 2 and Tulip 1. The knot performed right out the box and has not needed any really braking in.

    I would add that the Classic 2 I have is definitely a face latherer due to its sorter loft, although Simpson brush will vary due to the hand made nature of the product.

    Finally the service from Maguire's was fantastic. I attached a comment to my order requesting a specific knot shape and they picked one out that suited my requirements. Also the price is significantly lower than anywhere else that sells this model.

    The measurements of my brush are:
    Knot: 24mm
    Loft: 42mm
    Total Height: 82mm

    If you like Simpson brushes, you need one of these.


Simpson's, or rather Alexander Simpson to begin with, started making shaving brushes in the East End of London in 1919, building up a reputation for quality shaving brushes over the next 30 years. Purchased by another of the brands MAGUIRE'S Barbershop stocks; Progress Vulfix, the tradition of making some of the world's finest brushes entirely by hand, continues.
