Another custom Shavemac arrived today.

It's specifications are:

27/58 D01 Fan
412 Handle in Faux Horn (57 x 42mm)

I've pictured it along my other Faux Horn custom Shavemac (with a 102 handle & a 25/56 D01 knot) and a D01 439 with a 26/56 knot, below in order to give an idea of the size of this brush.

I lathered using Valobra Patchouly soap in my Steve Woodhead XL scuttle:

The brush can best be described as having a 'wall of badger' feel with plenty of backbone and very soft tips.

It has a bloom to match my Kent BLK12 in size:

All-in-all this is one awesome brush which, along with the other custom Shavemac pictured above, has finally put an end to my SBAD (for the time being at least). Smile

Very very nice, I love shavemacs! They are all fantastic but I love the one on the right, short loft and tall handle!

Thanks mate. Smile

The brush you're referring to, the 439, should have come with a 61mm loft - for some reason Bernd sent a brush with a 56mm loft instead.

I'm not complaining though, as it has turned out to be one of the best knots in my brush collection. Smile

Nice Buy! I only recently acquired a Shavemac DO1 3-Band Silvertip and it has quickly risen to the top of my 3-band list...I'd say with cost taken into account, it's in my top three 3-Band brushes! I hope to add another to my collection at some point, Enjoy your new beautyHeart
