After many e-mails to Bernd Blos at Shavemac in Germany we came up with a brush designed to fit and please me. It is my first custom made brush. It is a two band Silvertip Badger with a 22mm knot, a 50 mm loft, set in a Buffalo Horn Handle. The pictures do not do the brush justice. It is stunning.

Beautiful brush and Bernd is a pleasure to deal with. I've previously ordered two custom Shavemacs and am planning my next one.

The photos give it away. It's really a re-knotted vintage BF Luterman handle!

This is the bloom after 3 shaves. The brush is not completely broken in yet. I am very pleased with its performance and am thinking of having an Americana handle made into a custom brush for me.
