Chubby 1 and Trumper Almond

with 4 comments

As promised, I used the Simpson Chubby 1 Best brush today, and a similar soap to yesterday’s: Geo. F. Trumper again, this time Almond. A very good lather ensued, and the Chubby is definitely scrubbier than the Rooney 3,1—the Chubby is more like the Emperor 2, but with a larger knot.

I picked another Apollo Mikron (well, my other Mikron), this one with a Polsilver blade, and it did its usual fine job: three passes to a smooth visiage. A splash of Arlington, and I’m good to go.

  1. which one provided a better, easier lather? Is the chubby worth the price increase? How about a rooney stubby 1?

  2. Lather was easy to create with both brushes. The only difference was the feel. As to whether it was worth it, that is a very subjective judgment that only you could make. The Rooney 1,1 is more like the Rooney 3,1 than the Chubby.

    Hope this helps.

  3. If I may chime in here. A Rooney 1/1 is also a very small brush. It might be the smallest high-end brush except for the Simpson Wee Scott. I was really surprised at the size when mine first arrived in the mail. If you prefer small, scrubbier brushes, the 1/1 is a great buy.

  4. I don’t find the Rooney 1/1 to me all that small. Take a look.
