I had the chance to finish a new brush between working on custom orders.  It is a modified Takamine shape with a more rounded base.  It has just been listed and is available on my site at www.eliterazor.com.

It occurred to me that when turning a brush handle, I don't give much thought to the knot other than the size.  As I looked at my inventory of brush handles, it seemed most had rounded or curved segments that seemed more conducive to fitting a bulb shaped knot.  So, I took a shot at building a handle whose shape more properly reflected a fan shaped knot.  Below is the result.

Let me know your thoughts.

The squared shoulders lend a particular sense of feng shui-like symmetry to the silhouette of the knot’s canopy. Visually, to me that modification is somewhat reminiscent of the design difference between Martin slope shoulder and square shoulder dreadnaught.

What happens when there is only a little resin left in the cup after a pour?  After 8 pours, something like this.

Bob, I’ve gone back to look at this brush several times. I’m a fan fan (if you will), and this shape/form factor of the handle seems to truly respect the shape of a fan knot. As a proud owner of two of your fan knots in stone, I appreciate your attention to this kind of detail. I’ll always remain a fan of your fans (if you will).
