Lovely brushes, gents. Well, all of my brushes, except for my Chubby 2 Super and M&F 2XL are custom brushes. Biggrin

The artisan custom brush makers, along with the availability of quality knots from TGN, WSP, and Shavemac, have been huge game changers for those of us who enjoy brushes. This thread will be full of beautiful brushes and I'll look forward to following it.

Left to right: Elite Razors E7 with 24mm WSP Superfine 2band, Rudy Vey AS3M in "Dark Knight" material and 28mm TGN finest F2 knot, and Firehouse Pottery handle with 24mm TGN super finest knot.

Detail of the "Dark Knight" material.

I would love TGN to make the F2 knots in a fan shape.

Would my Wiborg be considered a custom?

Gorgeous! Love that E7, can't believe I sold all of mine! How's the TGN Super finest compare the WSP 2 band?

I really like the WSP superfine 2 band, but it seems to release hairs every time I use it. Not a lot like my Whipped Dog was before Larry replaced it, but just a couple. Some of the hairs are really short, but some are the full length. The density of the WSP is less than the TGN, less backbone, but softer tips. The WSP is a little on the floppy side when wet, but the TGN isn't. The WSP feels wonderful on the face and I prefer the fan shape compared to the TGN. I was slightly disappointed with the WSP given it's premium, but it's still a great brush!

Mine is in progress, i still need to finish sanding and put on some poly. This is my first turned brush handle. I have a TGN 22mm in best on the way. I really don't plan to buy another brush, just make my own from here on!

One of my favorite custom brushes is a small real ivory handled one made in the early 1980s by Gary Young of the Simpson family when he was a teenager. Its Super Badger knot has a 20mm diameter and a 44mm loft. The handle is quite asymmetrical, which I think just adds to its character.

Wow, that is one of the most interesting brushes I've ever seen. Definitely one of the coolest. Was that shape the original idea, or was the idea to preserve as much of the material when turning the handle?

I have no idea. That's something I should have asked Gary, but I never did.

This thread is not good for me. I sold off all of my Rudy Veys (3 of them). Not because I didn't love them but I needed funds.

This thread is making me want to commission a new brush! Confused
