Hello Gents,

I just received today my other new custom Shavemac from Bernd and it is a big, beautiful and bold brush! The handle is their 167 stuffed with D01 Extra Silvertip 3 band with a knot of 30mm and a fan loft of 55mm. I chose the Blue Marble color with red lettering and personalized it with what I've been called for years by my family "Papa Smurf".

Below are some pics since it's arrival, after the shampoo and test lather and next my Chubby 3 2-Band and it's smaller brother my other custom Shavemac GLM ROBUSTO 25X48 for some size comparisons....Enjoy

The 167 is one of my two favorite Shavemac handles. The other one is the hexagonal 173. Although I favor ivory brushes, that blue is beautiful.

I'm pretty much a plain vanilla faux ivory kind of guy, but that's a great looking brush.

Hi Greg

I like the look of the blue material used for the handle and the red lettering works well with it Thumbsup

That is one large (and stocky) and good looking Silvertip Extra D01 knot from Shavemac.

Take care, Mike

Good evening gents, Thank you all for the wonderful comments on my brush...I must admit that my daughters (ages 13 & 11) who still watch The Smurfs and the new movies, are the ones who inspired the design, the color, and of course my nickname Papa Smurf. So the credit goes to them and many thanks for their enthusiasm as well since they are fascinated by my brushes and this wonderful "hobby" of ours...SWMBO on the other hand, doesn't really understand it but just like with my fishing/boating gear and my collection of cigars, she just says "oh that's nice" LOL!!

Well I wanted to show you guys a completely dried and full bloom pic before I took Papa Smurf for the maiden shave this morning. As you can see it is even bigger than the pics I posted yesterday, quite an intimidating sight. However, I must tell you that it doesn't feel overly large on the face and does not hog the lather. I thoroughly enjoyed the face feel and performance with the D01 hair once again. Incredible water retention, nice gentle scrubbiness and soft tips.
