I have not seen a thread about Rudy's brushes lately...

Hence, I thought it is time for (a new) one that allows members to showcase their RV brushes. Biggrin

I will start with mine:

Boxelderburl with Shavemac Silvertip knot (24/50mm):

Jade R7 with TGN 2 Band knot (24/50mm)

Black Knight with WSP 2 Band Super Fine Knot (23/48mm)

I have only one Mr Vey brush in my den at the moment.

This is a Dark Knight with a custom slim "waist". Its fitted with a 24mm TGN Finest set at 49.3mm.

If you talk directly with Rudy, he may be able to help you decide.

Here's mine. The knot is a TGN 24mm Super Silvertip that was transplanted from a TGN handle, where it was set with too-high a loft for my taste. Rudy made a new handle for me, and the brush now has a perfect 50mm loft, which Rudy recommended.

I love it! It's currently my favorite brush. I love the heft and feel of the faux ivory handle. The brush has just the right amount of backbone.

Yep, Dark Knight. Designed at my request as kind of a combination of a Tulip and a Harvard, I suppose. It's a TGN Finest that's about 24/47.

Out of all of them this is my favorite. Seriously considering getting this shape from Rudy.
