I finally got an Oscar11 brush!

I have admired Steve's brushes for some time now and finally got to add one to my Den.

It is a 24mmx50mm TGN Finest 2-Band Badger with a smoke grey transparent base and opaque black top in the M7 style.

It performs like a champ. I really like the 2-Band knot and the handle fits my hand like a glove.

Pre bloom.

I had my second shave with it today.

That's gorgeous. Is he back to making handles or was this a one time affair?

You are a lucky man, Bob.

BTW, thanks for the info/help on sizing pictures way back some time ago. I never got to thank you. I have applied it to other things I do computer related. It's kinda liked walking out of a dark cave into the light.
Good luck with the brush.

I like the smoke gray nearly as much as Celestino's and Richard's all-amber C7's. I just can't decide what knot to put in one.

I'll re-ask what was asked above: is Steve/Oscar making handles for all interested members or are these just one-off's?

I think he might have started again, but I can't confirm this.
