I was making some minor modifications on my standard handle design and found that the result worked both ways.

Do you like the wider portion of the handle at the:


1) Head
2) Tail


Thanks,  Bob

Tail looks better IMO but it might shave better the other way around.

Tail does look more appealing to me. I also prefer a wider bottom on my brushes so that may be why it appeals to me.

Tail, based on aesthetics, but I thing I'd also prefer it ergonomically and balance-wise.

Personally I prefer the tail thicker...lets you have a "stop" closer to the bottom and prevents slipping.

I like how the 'tail' version exhibits 'entasis'.

Reminds me of the EJ Chatsworth.

I'm going against the grain - head. I am right handed and use an iKon OSS handle - I use other custom handles and a Sabi with a more bulbous head.

I like the look of the grip at the head, but voted for the tail as I think that the tail will provide a better grip.
