Nice looking brush.
Knot size?
Did you make the handle yourself?

Handle is beautiful, knot seems to be set at a good height, aesthetically/loft/handle/knot looks perfect.

The only criticism I have to offer is, it looks like you used too much Epoxy (that's what you should use if you didn't).  It appears to have seeped up above the handle and into the knot.  I've done that too and it's amazing how little you need to set the knot.

Looks really good, I'm interested in specs as well. If you are looking for constructive criticism about the only thing I see would be that it appears you've got some glue-creep going on into the knot. Not sure what you used to affix it but you may want to go a bit more sparingly next time. That being said, it could be a shadow or even a little damp toward the base of the knot, I'm just going off the picture Smile

ya you live and you learn.  The first handle i made wasnt deep enough this one i had to add a couple nickels to get thebrush at the right height.  Noticed the epoxy coming out and i tried my best to wipe it without spreading it causing more damage!

You did well in achieving an homage to the M7, it looks extremely comfortable. And on a side note, the TGN Silvertip Grade A was a pleasant surprise! I'm not usually a Silvertip user, I often find them too floppy for my tastes. That grade A though is a good combo of backbone and all the other attributes of a good Silvertip.

Looks good all round.  I'd not come across a TGN grade A knot before.  I have a TGN 2-band finest, which is an excellent knot having everything I like in a knot.  How does the A compare?

Super super soft. The feel reminds me of the shavemac 2 bands.

Trying it for the first time tonight!  Just got the badger funk smell out. It was one of the strongest funks I've smelt in a new knot. I'm so excited feels like a shavemac 2 band with the gel tips

Used for the first time this evening and I must say it battles with the big boys. Lathers well. Super super soft tips. Just the right amount of backbone and great flow through. Love it love it love it!  Easily makes it into the rotation.
