I had my first brush made for me recently. It was done by Rudy Vey. First - he is a great person to deal with. He was patient and chock full of knowledge. I'm a hippy at heart and decided to go with a Southwestern Moonjava Beehive. It has a TGN finest 2 band 22 mm knot. I'm a face latherer and the knot was set at 48 mm. It lathers like a champ and feels great. The bonus is I love to look at it! Here are a couple of pics...

Rudy does great work. The brush I purchased from him is the brush I use for 90% of my shaves. The handle is exactly what I was hoping for. Plus Rudy is great to deal with.
