Yesterday on Michael Hamm's blog he used a $20 Silver Tip from Whipped Dog for his shave of the day which he spoke highly of. I checked out the website and ordered a 24mm Silver Tip brush with a resin handle which is already assembled. For $16 dollars you can buy knot and handle seperate. I'm not sure what to expect but for $20 out the door and shipped I figure I won't be out much. He does say that the only difference between his knots and other top Silver Tip knots is his aren't treated for softness. So I'm expecting it to be a little scratchy at first. Once I get it and use it a couple times I will report my findings.

I will look forward to hearing what your experience is with this brush. I've thought about it on multiple occasions but I'm concerned it won't have enough backbone for me.

This is my biggest concern also...but Michael Hamm said it has plenty of back bone.

Larry from whippeddog is one of the nicest people you'll talk to. Good to see the support. I'm curious also about his brushes. His straight razor service is top notch.
