Members WHO sent me the knot and Bowhnter made me the Rosewood handle. The handle is exactly what I wanted and bowhnter did a very nice job in making and finishing the handle. I would highly recommend him if you want a handle made. He claims to not have much experience but is a fine craftsman and communicates very well with you throughout the process and I couldn't have been more pleased upon receiving the handle.
Here are some pictures shown with the 24mm Whipped Dog Synthetic and the stock L'Occitane synthetic brush. You can see the stock L'Occitane has bloomed nicely. It looked like the custom brush upon receipt and over the weeks has bloomed to what you see now. Hopefully the custom will also. The loft is set the same as the stock, which works out well for me. With the metal cup you would have to make the hole in the handle a couple of mm oversize to get the lip of the cup into the handle, which would probably not look very nice. Thank You to Members WHO and Bowhnter for doing this for me.

Very nice. What handle did you use? Looks like it fits perfectly.

Like the white handle. How hard was it to get the knot out?
