I have a strange desire to round out my size 12 HMW collection, and the only one left is Ivory.

These Two need a brother!

I will also consider a 14 in Two-band.

grantmm, hope you don't mind, I cropped and resized your picture.

Beautiful brushes.

No worries, the forum usually "auto-resizes" it with a click to enlarge, so I didn't pay much attention to its size on posting. Didn't intend to make something extravagantly large.

Beautiful brushes! Is it just the picture or the Horn one has a considerably taller loft?

Also, I believe you can only generally only find 2-band hair with Plissons above (and including) size 16, but Ben is the Plisson expert. Wink

Thank you for the complement Smile The Horn is a 3-band HMW which has a much higher loft. The Tortoise is one of a short run of 2-band HMW size 12s with a shorter, scrubbier loft.

Both outstanding brushes, and now I'm trying to find an Ivory with a knot like the 3-band horn.

This is never going to happen, is it?

It certainly won't be easy... But you shouldn't give up! Smile
