Yesterday I received my first custom made brush from Bob Quinn the man behind the Elite Razor. My brush is made from Russian Bog Oak and Finest Badger hair.
It has a 26mm knot set at 50mm, the handle is 60mm for a total height of 110mm I think that it is a beautiful brush.
Oh and according to the paperwork he provided the wood is about 5460 years old!
This is Bob's Pic.

It has a unique grain and look to it.

The best shot I have so far.

Bob was great to deal with and helped me get exactly what I was after.

Bob is an amazing artisan. He even welcomed me into his home and showed me his workshop when I picked up my first custom brush from him. It was nice to see where the E7 was born!

Great brush! May you enjoy it in good health for many years to come.

Congratulations Jim. Bob's E7 remains one of my favorite custom handles and I have several in my rotation.

Thanks guys.
I had my second shave with it today, I can tell the knot that Bob picked is going to be something special. I am going to try to get a few outside pics this week and will post them when I get a chance.

Its just a mass produced Parker bowl (Best one I had for the pic) :big grin:. One of Brads bowls is on the wish list tho, along with another E7.
