I have some more brushes on the way or soon to be on the way from Shavemac and Dark Holler, but in the meantime I have taken it upon myself to add some more brushes via restoration.

If you are referring to my Paladin order I got a PK-47 and Chief.  If you are referring to my Shavemac order I got a Beehive and Americana.

BTW, my goal in 2014 was to get the collection down to 60 brushes, which I was able to do a few times.  However, I have accepted my weakness and embraced my passion for these beautiful and functional pieces of art and will just go with whatever my heart desires as the cash flow allows.  I will be investigating some sort of glass door cabinet to put my brushes on display, some media storage units have piqued my interest but none of them have been "the one" yet.

Both Shavemac brushes are brand new and just arrived from Bernd.  I have another Americana in D01 3-band that I recently picked up from Mike, it is a shedder though and will likely be receiving a transplant..

This is my first Shavemac shedder, but in reality with a D01 knot it might actually improve face feel after it sheds about 10-20% of the hair.  I like dense brushes but the D01s can be just ridiculous.

I have owned 6 D01 2-bands and only two were acceptable to me, the other four cause irritation due to the scratchiness.  Of those two, only one remains and is a nice compliment to my 2-band Silvertip Americana.  The D01 has firm backbone with soft tips and the 2-band Silvertip has moderate backbone with even softer tips.
