Just received my Model 142 Brown & Black Shavemac Finest inspired by Mike and Teiste's review of their Model 142 in faux ivory in Fan shape.

I have yet to rinse and clean mine, but thought I would take a couple of pics of my 3 Brown & Black handles Shavemacs for you to enjoy, as I find they look quite good to be honest Cool

The Flat top is a D01 3-Band, the Bulb-Fan Hybrid is a D01 2-Band and the true fan shape is my recent purchase, which arrived yesterday - a Finest Fan shaped 24 mm knot with 46 mm loft:

To be honest I can't see if my new Finest is Finest hair or 3-band Silvertip hair.
I own 3 Shavemac brushes with 3-band Silvertip hair, 5 with D01 3-Band hair and 5 with D01 2-Band hair, and this Finest hair looks 100% like it is 3-Band Silvertip hair - I'm being honest here.
I can't even spot the blacker Pure hair that supposedly should be hiding inside the Finest knot........this knot is among the most uniform and perfect made knots I have ever seen in a brush.

Very cool looking brushes. How does a fan like that release lather compared to others knot shapes?

Thanks for the pics, Claus. I have been considering the brown-black handle for my next Shavemac and your pics have convinced me that it's the right choice. Those brushes look great!

Very nice looking. The description "black and brown brush handle" doesn't sound nearly as appealing as the final product actually is.

Claus :

as you , I sometimes cant distinguish between the finest and silvertip hair from shavemac.

I think they are getting a new finest badger hair which is , basically , silvertip quality and excellent quality for the price.

Let is know when you try them , please , and thanks for the pics.

I like them all to be honest - cant say I like one lever the other, they are all great ergonomic wise.

Thanks for all your nice comments, guys Smile

I would originally never order a brown-black colored handle, but a Spanish guy on B&B inspired me with his pictures of his Shavemac brown-black flat top, so I got inspiration from him Biggrin

I also own a couple of Shavemacs in the Savile Row 3120 shape, and I'm 99% sure Savile Row have both their handles and the hair made by Shavemac - their Silvertip is identical to the best 3-Band Silvertip regular version from Shavemac, I strongly believe.

It is great to see the contrast of knot shapes and handle shapes in one shot. I only have a D01 2-Band hybrid and a D01 bulb, but that flat-top calls to me.

Thanks for posting the latest selection from your uber-collection!
