just got my custom brush today. handle was made by one of the members of the nook under the username oscar11. i think most of you know who he is.

The knot and delivery was all sorted by a mutual friend of ours. very happy with the result. looks nice and summery. done two test lathers today and performs brilliantly. very comfy in the hand.
knot is a 26mm TGN finest two band.

That is a great looking brush, I need to get one similar after I figure out how to decide which brushes in my collection to sell off. In fact that exact brush in another color would be perfect.

The same day you received yours I received mine from Oscar11. Same handle and knot, but in ivory. I'm delighted with mine.

Well I'm bound to like the handle design Wink

I really like the material coloration. It reminds me of the barrel of an old fountain pen that grandad used to have.
