I cleaned all my brushes last night, so I figured it would be a good time to take a group shot (with my very limited photography skills). Having 5 brushes is actually a lot for me, but I know this is nothing compared to many people.

Back row
  • Vulfix 41 Super
  • Vintage "beehive" Plisson (roughly size 12)
  • Simpson Tulip 2 Super (Somerset)
Front row
  • Simpson Wee Scot (Somerset)
  • "Micro" Plisson

The Plisson and the Tulip are my main brushes, but I also use the Wee Scot frequently with shave sticks. The Vulfix is a new addition and is auditioning for a spot in the lineup. The "micro" Plisson is really more just a collector's item. I've used it a few times, but find it tedious.

Eight is plenty!

(left to right) Omega 10019, $.50 chinese boar, Semogue 1438, Semogue 610, handcrafted badger by a friend in Alabama- cocobolo handle, Simpson Special pure, Simpson Special Best, Rooney 3/1 SS.

Unfortunately the middle brush won't stand on end. It was the first brush this gent ever built. But he made it for me, so it's pretty special.

I made it! I don't like doing that kind of work, but I can. My shop is set up to make things round.

Excellent use of the type holders. I see them for sale on etsy.com and e-bay and never thought to use them for brushes. However, if I were to buy one I would have to buy more brushes to fill all the spaces. That could be fun, and expensive!
