Scuttlebutt around the shaving discussion boards indicate that Simpson, the venerable high-end shaving brush manufacturer, has been sold to Vulfix, another shaving brush manufacturer. I can’t say as I’m suprised: Simpson’s quality and customer service has been…uneven…over the last couple of years and they dropped their Coates line of excellent shaving cream some years ago as well (their Tea Tree shaving cream was one of my all-time favorites).
