This is a completely custom 28/48 Shavemac D01 2-band I had Rudy Vey do for me. Handle is a beefy M7 made from stabilized red and black buckeye burl.

This one is a 24/42 Shavemac D01 2-band extreme flattop that Bernd made for me several years ago.

Both still see regular use in my rotation.

Kris,
Does that large of a loft make the flattop floppy? That shape has intrigued me but I'm still not sold on them.

Not that floppy. The d-01 is full of backbone.

Here is mine 18mm knot 49 mm loft custom shavemac with D01 two band hair.Usually these brushes have a 42mm loft,but that was too short for my taste :

Its a lather maker!

Also my two foroafeitado.com shavemac brushes : the finest badger one (black handle) and the D01 silvertip (horn handle hand) :

Here is my "Macfix Grosvenor". I had the Vulfix 404 Mixed knot Grosvenor which i did not like at all, but the handle was of excellent quality. So I never tried a Shavemac D-01 3Band and always wanted too. I knew RVey helped restored brushes. After working out the logistics, I sent it to him and he restored the brush with a Shavemac D-01 3Band knot. Its one of my favorite shaving brushes. Here's a pic for you guys!

Thanks Teiste! The knot looks almost exactly the same as the Foroafeitado.es custom shavemac you have there. It might be that the knot on yours might be bigger. This knot is around 22m with a loft of 50 mm I believe so it doesn't splay as much.

Forget about pure badger : its super scratchy,imposible to use with circular movements.Ill go for finest badger,which its pretty similar to silvertip (well,for shavemac, finest badger its a blend of pure 40% and silvertip 60%)
