I just got a few more Somerset Simpson brushes that pretty much complete some sets. Like the others, these will be used in my regular rotation.
First is a Tulip 1 in Super.
Next is a Tulip 2 in 2-Band Super.
Together they complete my Tulip set.
And a Polo 10 in Super.
It fits well in my Polo set.
And finally a Persian Jar 3 in 2-Band Super.
That one complements the others in the set.

John I don't know which impresses me the most, your collection or the fact you use them.

The Nimmer Mill Somersets are my favorites. Stan Archer made some wonderful brushes. No wonder Gary Young is so proud of his heritage. Good show John.

Nice brushes John.
I'm surprised at what great shape they're in still.

Nice collection John; the Sommerset Best seems to be a different type of feel than the newer Simpsons and much more enjoyable to use, in general. I find mine like the two bands even in sommerset pure.
Nothing will be accomplished if first all objections must be overcome...
