That black pearl is awesome man!

My brush took a couple thousand mile detour over to Portland, Or. for some reason. Gotta love the Postal system!

Dave, I saw that. Honestly, this is the first time this happened to one of my shipments. I have no idea why. Perhaps the snow? Or just a screw up. USPS is actually pretty good for how many pieces of mail they handle. Sorry for your delay, but hang in there. I got a box in the mail today that was ripped open and taped back up and stamped "Damaged". Thankfully, nothing was missing or damaged, but this crap happens, I guess. I hope you get the brush soon. the latest two brushes are going overseas, so you will see yours before those guys see theirs Smile

Thanks, Bryan. It is a nice looking material. I have another chunk of it, but it is simply butterscotch swirl without the pearl flake. I have not turned that before, but it looks very similar. the black pearl is way more gorgeous in person than on photos. It's just impossible to capture the full depth of what's going on in there...

Got the brush in yesterday. Pics can't do justice to how great it looks in person. Couldn't be happier with the purchase!

I'm sure I'll own more in the future Cool

Dave, so glad you finally got the brush! Let us know how it performs. I only shampooed it and test lathered it with a shaving soap (I forgot which, but it may have been Palmolive stick). It produced excellent lather for me, so I hope it's a joy to shave with.

Enjoy the brush!

Thank you, Kevin. Shipping label created and you should have a tracking number. I will put the brush in the mail tomorrow. Today I dig myself out of snow, which just seems to keep on coming... I must say, this is a snowy winter here in New England, and that's saying something!

I have created a brush with a handle made of Ironwood and a two band finest TGN knot. The handle is a classic style and the finish is Cyanoacrylate (CA, crazy glue) wet sanded and polished to glass-like shine. this brush came out really well. I love this wood. The grain is gorgeous and has a lot of depth through the CA finish. The color is golden honey.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 90mm
Handle: 45mm
Loft: 45mm
Knot: 24mm bulb shape

I have created three brushes in resin handles for my Etsy store. I hope you like them. These resins are new to me and I think they are pretty amazing looking.

First, Copper Pearl. This one is a fan shaped knot with a handle inspired by SOC (one of my favorite ergonomic designs).

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 100mm
Handle: 53mm
Loft: 47mm
Knot: 24mm fan shape

Next, Antique Gold. I really love it. It is understated and just gorgeous.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 103mm
Handle: 53mm
Loft: 50mm
Knot: 25mm Bulb shape

And now one in Black Olive. This one is amazingly beautiful for those who like black handles. Wow! I am not even sure what the other color is in there, but it sure looks like black olive. Pattern is gorgeous too. This is TGN's three band finest grade. It is somewhat like Simpson's best, but a bit sturdier and finer tips. Very soft tipped.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 101mm
Handle: 52mm
Loft: 49mm
Knot: 27mm Bulb shape

I have created a synthetic brush for my Etsy Store. This one is in "Gold Coast" resin. I used this resin before and called it "Burnt Butterscotch". This one has a bit more red in it, so I hesitate to call it that, but boy, is it gorgeous! See for yourselves.

Brush Dimensions (approximate):

Total height: 110mm
Handle height: 60mm
Loft height: 50mm
Knot: 27mm
