SOLD
I'm selling my artisan synthetic brush. I'm not the original owner of the brush so I only know what the prior owner told me.
Prices include paypal fees and shipping to a UK or CONUS mailing address.
I've measured with my caliper and this is what I've got.

El Druida Redwood handle
$65 USD (£40 GBP)
Height: 105mm
Loft: 50mm
Knot: 26mm (27.5mm at opening)
Redwood handle in the "M7/L7" style. Created by the Spanish artisan "El Druida" and has his brass makers-mark embedded in the base. Wood is not sealed, so the grain gives a nice tactile feel. Because it's not sealed, I rub a drop of oil into the woodgrain to preserve the beautiful luster (about once a month).
Knot is synthetic, but not sure where it was sourced from. Because there aren't many vendors who produce 26mm knots, I'm guessing it's a Pur-Tech knot. It has great backbone while splaying correctly, soft tips and lathers like a beast.
In full disclosure, a few of the fibre tips are broken which gives it a very slight "flat-top" look but it doesn't affect the face feel at all.
Please send me a PM if interested. Post questions below.

LOL, that's me...Cap't Obvious. Biggrin
To be honest I don't mind if this doesn't sell. I love the handle/knot combination. I just don't physically have room on my shelf for it.
Guess I'll keep it in the box in my long-term off-site storage.

That's a good place to be.

We could use more Cap't Obvious-es in the world IMHO.
