I have been moving away from 2-bands, much preferring soft 3-band Silvertip these days. The Tulip 3 is the last of my Manchurians, and I'm considering letting it go. I love the Tulip handle, so I'm looking to see if anyone would want to trade their Tulip 4 in 3-band Super for my Tulip 3 Manchurian.

If someone is interested, we can exchange photos. My T3 is a beautiful specimen.

Not yet, but I plan on trying a BK8 some day. My trade interest is for a T4 right now.

The Kent BK range has significantly less backbone than Simpsons 3 band super. If you can find one of the LE Kents that were made for another forum in 2008 and 2009, they were extra stuffed, shorter lofted and well worth adding to any 3 band collection...

The 2008 is the larger one and several came with a complete set in horn and silver. The 2009 had a butterscotch handle option.

The Kent brushes are nice but we should try to keep this on target as to what Andrew is looking to trade for.

It's all good Johnny. I sometimes regret not buying a Kent LE for a fellow Nook member when I had the chance. The one shown here would be perfect. I'll keep looking for a T4 and may list my T3 Manchurian for sale instead.

Here are some photos for those interested. The brush is from the first batch of Manchurian.
