Manchurian quintuplet...

Five bespoke Manchurians left the Isle of Man back in late March
They made it to Australia
But due to an error with the shipping address
They were returned to their place of origin.

Finally, this morning I took delivery...

I figure I had to wait so long, so too does everyone else! Tongue

In truth, I should be super excited about these. All feature non standard rod stock for the handles. All feature my favoured handle shapes and of course all are filled with wonderful Manchurian hair.

But I think the long wait and associated concern with such a sizeable investment of difficult to replace brushes going missing has tarnished my anticipation of these beauties.

So I'm hoping by appealing for the collective excitement of our membership, my own passion will be reignited too...

Good idea Celestino, but does anyone else think this is the way to go?
