Having taken delivery of my Simpsons P8 and very much enjoying the brush and in particular the handle shape I wondered what the brush would look like with a different coloured handle and knot, well that was a dream until a few weeks ago until I saw the master himself posting back on the forum Mr Bill Jack of Le Tuft brushes, now I know Bill's a very busy man indeed but being the owner of a few of Bill's brushes all I could do was ask and I was overjoyed when Bill decided to take on the project after a few discussions we decided on a Colbalt blue with a Shavemac D01 silvertip 26mm fan shaped knot with a 48mm loft with a sterling silver disc mounted in a faux ivory ring engraved with the number 8, well I know Bill is a master of his craft but the brush is absolutely beautiful a big thank you Bill I'm knocked out with the brush.

The brush as already been christened the Le Tuft Blue 8.

Cheers gents, Bill of Le Tuft brushes more than delivers he's a guy that can't be rushed and unless he's 100% happy with his work and what he's producing he won't except anything else a true perfectionist for sure.

A lovely brush Jamie. It must be even better in the flesh.

Bill is also a true gentleman. A pleasure to deal with.
