Very nice. How does it perform? How are the tips? Any comparison to a Shavemac 3 band Silvertip.

I was considering buying a Shavemac but that custom handle is beautiful. Maybe I will look into a custom brush as well.

The tips feel soft and quite luxurious to me and I think the lathering performance of this brush is outstanding. I don't own a Shavemac brush yet, so I can't make any comparison there. My Paladin finest brushes have more stiffness, I feel, but the TGN knot in my Doug Korn brush has quite enough backbone for me.

Here's a custom brush and razor set I just finished up for a bowhunter-client of mine today.....


Custom Desert Camo Brush with a synthetic knot set at 25x54mm loft. The handle is 66mm tall, with a Bowhunters Badge embedded in the base of the handle. The razor has a Tech head and a handle of the same Desert Camo with a brass .410 casing attached. The handle is 84mm long.
