Been out of it for a few months, what's up with M&F? Can I still get it ordered directly from Lee? What's with someone buying his knots and installing in custom handles? Where can I see it?

I haven't heard anything from Lee directly in a long while.  I'm pretty sure he still makes his own brushes but he's got his hands full from Ken's enterprise.

Thanks Erik! I'll be contacting Lee to see if he is still doing his own handles. From what I read, Ken only has 2 handle choices, correct? Is there a website with pricing, info, etc.?

Steve, you can always try contacting Ken, directly:  http://shavenook.com/thread-dark-holler-...troduction

I know Sabini is still providing his brushes. I highly doubt he will sell stand-alone knots to anyone unless it is an exception, though.

I ordered an XL2 from Lee today. Looking forward to the new addition to my den!

I noticed my SBAD has been tamed without Ben and Ravi's pics...

White XL2 with a bulb knot. Lee just said it was a really nice knot, now the wait begins.

Lee is still taking orders directly.   I recently sent a handle to him and he put a very nice knot in it for me.  I also have a brush from Dark Holler Designs that has a handle designed by Chief Broom, and a custom knot by Lee Sabini.  A word of caution...don't give up if he doesn't answer you right away...try, try again.  The brushes are worth the frustration and the wait.

IMO, M&F Blonde Badger and Finest 2-bands are some of the best on the planet.

Would you mind sending me the information also? I would greatly appreciate it, I have been searching for anyway to contact Mr Sabini for several days and can't find any information as to how to go about ordering a brush. Thank you so much, George

Is ChiefBroom on these boards much?  He used to be really active on B&B, but wondering if he is just putting all of his time into his handles.  =)

I ordered a ivory from him last week, I understand it can take awhile to arrive to the US but I'm sure it will be worth it.

Can someone PM me Lee's other email address, please? The one I have bounces back as undeliverable.
