First let me start by saying that from the initial email to the CAD drawings to every detail in between -- Brad Sears is a pleasure to deal with in every respect.

I approached Brad and basically told him that I love Beehive brushes and I also love the lower part of the handle on the Paladin PK-47 -- I asked what he could do and only a few days later this arrived yesterday, it has the grippy texture of the beehive design that I love with the more rounded lower part of the handle which is great for face lathering -- I feel like he met me exactly in the middle for the combination I was looking for -- and by the way, not sure where he gets his knots from but they are FANTASTIC for tip softness mixed with great backbone and flow through.As a bonus, his faux ivory that he is using is stunning in person.

Stunning design, the "P-Hive" perhaps?  Brad Sears is on my short list of brushes to acquire, but I have three new brushes that I need to use and see if they will make the cut first.  Congratulations!

A beautiful and creative  design.  The knot has a nice bulb shape and faux Ivory is always my favorite handle material.  Overall, a great brush!
