There is a new brush-maker out of Washington State that is making some gorgeous brushes. His name is Scott and his company is Pav Brush Works. He specializes in wood handles that are clean, classic and simple. He is turning styles such as the M7, Shavemac 90, Chubby, Tulip, etc. The brushes are complete and ready to buy, although he often has just handles available if you see one you like. He will eventually be turning acrylic handles as well as the business continues to grow. I personally own three of his brushes, including a prototype acrylic M7 style handle. His handles are stuffed with both TGN and Ace badger knots. You can contact him and browse available brushes thru his Facebook page which I have inserted in the post. https://www.facebook.com/pavbrushworks?ref=ts&fref=ts You should definitely stop by the page and check out his work.

NOTE: The brushes pictured below are the three from my collection...

How do you like the cylindrical handle? I've always wanted one like that but didn't know how it would be ergonomically.

Also, that's a Tradere SB head on a bulldog handle right? I've read that the tradere heads don't flex the blade; how is the angle when using it? How is the resulting shave?

The cylinder handle shape is actually really comfortable to hold, at least IMO. These handles have an ever so slight indention near the middle of the handle just like the Shavemac 90 series. I love the feel in the hand. I also like big brush handles, these are both the same width as the Chubby 3. Same knot size as well, 30mm.

As for the razor, yes it is the SB Tradere on an iKon bulldog. You are correct, the blade sits pretty flat in the head on both the SB & OC versions. It does take a few shaves to get the angle dialed in but the resulting shave is phenomenal. I personally consider the oc Tradere to be one of the finest razors ever made. It is one of my top three favorites, and I own about 70 razors so that says something. Wink

+1 Once shave angle is (correctly) dialed in, the shaves are smooth as silk (IMHO).
