... by Michael's shavemac Colonia I creation I asked Bernd to make me a regular silvertip knot in that gorgeous handle design. Same 24/52mm knot... Cool

Below shown with the other shavemacs in my collection... all silvertips... Biggrin

Thanks to Michael! Of course the name Colonia I remains reserved to the D01 knot...

Awesome brush indeed! The handle is sweet looking.

The knot has a very wide black band, almost HMW-ish in appearance. How is the backbone?

Hi German,

Gorgeous! Thumbsup Congratulations and an awesome lineup!

How does the brush compare to, say, a Duke 3?

Thanks.

The hair is a bit more scrubby than the other silvertips I have... has good backbone .. though not as dense as a D01...

A D3 is more dense. the face feel depends on the hair grade and knot shape. below are my three D3s that all behave very different: a Two Band bulb, Super fan and Manchurian hybrid.

Beautiful.

Shavemac silvertip is as soft as silk.

I must say though, I'm a big D01 3 band fan myself.
