Gentlemen, you may have seen or heard of the Shavemac Americana. It is a truly unique and classy brush. Geoff Anderson is the man behind the design of that brush, and soon after a fire was lit in his eyes for creative brush handle designs. Here are several collages I made of his custom work. He creates the design, and Bernd at Shavemac brings them to life. He stuffs them with WSP or TGN knots. I am not affiliated with him in business at all, only as a friend and fellow wetshaver. Enjoy the eye candy gentlemen.

***Mods, my apologies for taking up so much bandwidth, I could not resize any lower without blurring the pictures.***

I'd love to see a GA/Bernd collaboration & take on a *7 handle.

Thanks for sharing all the great pictures of some seriously lovely brushes Jeremy!

That would be very cool, Brian. I am imagining that shape with multiple layers.

I feel that the WSP knots have taken these brushes to the next level. My Superfine v3 Americana is superb.

Great stuff. I borrowed Geoff's Americana design and had Bernd apply that to the magnetic field traveler pictured up there for me. You can't get more bespoke than Shavemac gents, that's a fact.

Does he work with the new Muhle synthetic knots? I'd like to combine his modern handle designs with a 25mm Muhle synthetic.
