Supposed to be a 28x48 with very thick hairs providing good scrub. We'll see. I just now made contact with Lee and he said
the hair was blonde, very near finest that he had put away.

I don't know yet what hair this is. I will be talking to Lee soon-to find out. We have been going back and forth with several emails trying to get it right. The first brush he made I sent back because the hair was too fine (blonde badger) and the knot was too small. I sent him a picture of a brush with a hybrid knot (WSP Mtn Manchurian) and full description of what I wanted. This is the result as he sees it. That's is why I said we'll see. I'm hoping it is very strong with scrubby tips. I will post results when I get it. I edited post: Lee said it is blonde, almost finest with very thick hairs? Whatever that means.

That's a fine looking brush; I hope it's what you're after. I was pretty explicit in my request, and even provided a photo, and am glad I did. We've done everything we can do except stand over Lee as he builds it.

The waiting part is hard, that's for sure.

That would be very very interesting and quite personalized if he can indeed tweak the hair selection to match what your looking for, that would be something that (i hope) will meet your requirements when it finally shows up.

exciting times indeed, good luck and hope you enjoy it when it arrives!

I sent Lee a picture of a WSP hybrid knot because I wanted one like it made by him. He was great to work with. He went that extra mile to satisfy me.
The first brush was blonde badger and, while nice, the hair was too thin & not strong or stiff enough to suit me. This hair is supposed to have very thick shafts.
Waiting, waiting...
