    Some of you might have seen that Simpson’s have posted a cryptic social media message about the supply of their Manchurian grade hair.

    Even though I’ve never used Simpson Manchurian, this hair grade has legendary status. Is this the end of a wet shaving icon?

    Chinese export restrictions? Pull the other one. Or do they perhaps mean UK restrictions on importing from China?

    If I was trying to sell very expensive badger hair brushes, and was a great business man who excelled in building rarity and exclusivity by producing many 'limited editions' at a high price, I'd probably say something like this too! :D:wink::wink:

    Getting rare or not, there's bound to be some that now panic buy!

    ..........Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my old age???:scratchhead:

  9. My thoughts, exactly! Sadly I guess I too am a cynic .

  10. Just so you know: On Instagram, Mark said the following "We have representatives currently in China discussing the situation. It is not only issues with Manchurian, all material is affected."

    That's not cynicism, that's accumulated wisdom, age really is good for something!

    I’ve never tried the Manchurian hair and for a brief moment I found myself on the Simpson’s Website pricing up a Manchurian brush. I didn’t buy one but I wonder if Simpson’s have seen a spike in their sales since they posted the update???

    Probably, but they won't sell one to me.

    Is Manchurian really better than the premium hair from Shavemac for example?

    I think its a YMMV thing tho.

    one thing that really stands out for my manchurian chubby 2 is the knot density.
