This past June, some Plisson synthetics appeared at L'Occitane stores.  The store close to my house received three of them the day before I went to check.  I purchased one of them for $30.00, intending to have the knot transplanted into a custom handle.  That same month Peter Wolf opened up his waiting list, so I got on the waiting list, asked him for what I wanted, and sent him my brush.  I am very pleased with the result. The faux ivory brush he turned for me is beautiful, with impeccable workmanship and outstanding polishing.  The fit of the metal sleeve holding the knot, which I was concerned about, is as perfect as if this was a factory handle.

I want this post to highlight the handle, so I won't get into a discussion about the Plisson knot.  It really is amazing how a custom handle from one of our gifted artisans can enhance one's enjoyment of a brush.

Peter has done a ton of Plisson swaps. I thought about doing the same thing you did, but ended up deciding on a badger.

I think that i am going to take a dive in with the Ubersoft II knot. I love synths and the modified shape looks great, almost a fan, and the coloring is also nice

I'm going to try for his waiting list and get the Fauxmere 24mm synthetic transplanted into that "Bob" handle. I always opt for faux ivory on my badgers, but for some reason my synthetics have all been dark handled. I've been considering an all-ebony or his Shadows of Stonehenge, but your ivory is very classy.
