Friends, this is the chronicle of a hair transplanting by Master Canica. You know that there is a seller on ebay selling these brushes as "Frank Shaving Manchurian Silvertip Badger Shaving Brush,A1,knot 26mm". The knot is high density, FAN shaped, and the handle is made of faux ivory.

Well, I bought it at a good price, but I did not like the handle. I did this knowing that the knot was very good and with the intention that Master Canica would make one chubby handle for me.

When I received it, I tried it a couple or three times and found that the knot is very interesting, but the handle did not attract me at all. Very narrow at the base. So I sent it to Cordoba.

And here you see what Canica did to get the knot preserving its integrity. With great delicacy, he proceeded to scabble the handle and extracting the knot. Then he made a chubby handle in this fantastic material that someone call Moonjava (I've seen brushes made by Lee Sabini in the same material, the same colors, and the same pattern of placement).

The knot is 26 mm in diameter and has been placed with a loft of 48.5 mm. The total height of the brush is 94 mm, and weight of about 80 gr. The crown diameter once flowering is around 72 mm.

I call it Canica Manchurian Candy Chubby.

Yes. Master Canica has a knack for making handles chubby type. And I like very colorful handles. Life in colour is better. So this material is perfect. People call it Moonjava, I do not know why, but it is spectacular, a slightly translucent. And this knot, even humble, is quite dense and behaves very well, with some backbone.

Fantastic! This is the "original" Chubby-shape handle, to my eye! More faithful than the one Simfix is currently making...
