Just listed on my site at http://www.eliterazor.com are the 2 brushes shown below.

Irish Bog Oak with a Kingman Turquoise cap.  If you like a big brush, this might be the one for you.  It holds a 28mm knot, which actually presents like a 30mm knot due to the density.  The handle is 89mm and the loft is 56mm.

I've been working on this brush for a while and the finish was finally fully cured this morning.  It is an extraordinary piece of Buckeye burl with a contrasting green pearl resin.  It is shown with a 24mm knot, but can be adjusted to accept a 26mm knot.

Buckeye grows in the central states of the US.   The botanical name for the Buckeye is Aesculus, from “Aesculapius,” the name of the mythological Greek god of medicine.  The common name “Buckeye” was derived from the Native Americans who noticed that the glossy, chestnut-brown seeds with the lighter circular “eye” looked very similar to the eye of a buck (male) deer.  Some believe that the buckeye relieves rheumatism pain and provides good fortune when carried in the pockets of their garments or worn as an amulet around the neck. Instantly dubbed “buckeye” in frontier speech, the mysterious nut was used as a general cure-all for generations.  As a result, citizens of Ohio became known as “Buckeyes.” The buckeye tree was officially adapted as the state tree on October 2, 1953.

Burnt Purpleheart - Passing a torch over this handle really brought out the Deep Purple.... listen closely and you can almost hear the opening of Smoke On The Water.

I just completed the brush shown below.  It is made of Wild Horse Jasper, which is associated with the birthstone month of January.  Wild Horse Jasper is named for the location where it is mined, at the Wild Horse Canyon in Oregon. The name is Greek in origin, meaning “spotted or speckled stone” and Jasper was a favorite gemstone of ancient times and can be traced back to Greek, Hebrew, Persian, Latin, and Assyrian literature.  In mythology, Jasper is said to have powers to keep evil and fatal insect or reptile bites at bay.  This particularly handsome Wild Horse Jasper stone is prized for its' crimson and jet black veins.

I received the Elite Razor medallions yesterday and this is the first piece I have ever branded.

I'm always looking for something that is a little different that I can use to make razor or brush handles.  I came across this gentleman who uses small pieces of hand-hammered metal to individually place around a brass tube then encase the whole thing in clear resin.  I am pleased to have acquired a few of his pieces to turn into razor handles.  Each is definitely "one of a kind".

These have all been listed on my site at http://www.eliterazor.com and are available as a 3-piece handle only or a complete razor with either a Muhle, Edwin Jagger or Merkur head.

I've been wanting to build a Barber Pole brush for quite a while. I finally got to it and I'm pretty pleased with the results. It is shown with a 24mm knot, but can be opened up to accept a 26mm knot.

I just completed a couple of new brushes that can also be paired with a matching razor handle.  These are from a custom pour and are in the Fire and Ice coloring and one was built with the Fire over the Ice and the other with the Ice over the Fire.  The razor handles can be fitted to match either color combination as a 3-piece handle only to fit your existing head, a finished 3-piece razor with either a Merkur, Edwin Jagger or Muhle head or fit to a Merkur HD razor.

I was also recently asked if I could build a brush that represented the colors of the Italian flag.  Overall, it turned out pretty well.
