This Brush is a long time in the making and i wanted to share it with the community.


James and I got together to collaborate on a Custom design that I had made. I was very excited about it and because of some of the features, turned a couple plywood blanks first to see how it would Fare.

SO here we go...

The design - I started with a Simpson's M7 and modified it from there. I wanted an interesting mid section, so I added  2 coves and a recess to give it an interesting look . At the same time, I wanted to have a nice little flare at the top which is remeniscent of the Tulip, so I tossed that in as well.

The Brush comes in at 58mm with a loft of 48. I like them a little stubby on the knot to increase the backbone.

The Stock... At the same time, I have a brush coming from Peter Wolf, and wanted to have a Ying and Yang Sort of Theme. That brush will be Violet and Bronze, This one will be Blue and Copper.

The Knot... This is a Nathan Clark 22mm Envy White knot. It has amazing backbone and density, but with incredible face feel and flow through. I have never felt a brush this pleasant on the face. I think that everyone needs to own one of these knots, if you are a badger fan.

Absolutely Stunning. I will be shaving with it shortly.

Congratulations on a very nice custom brush.  I was not familiar with James Ortega as an artisan brush maker.  By the way, Peter Wolf's Violet and Bronze is beautiful, so please post pictures of that brush when it arrives.

He does a lot of woodturning and does a bit of business on facebook, but his acrylic supplier makes it to order so the sky is generally the limit.

Peter had an emergency surgery yesterday so he is recovering for a couple weeks, but mine is next on the block Smile very excited to have the pair together

I just got word from Nathan Clark, 2 weeks he will have all his sizes in stock +28 30mm knots in his store. I highly recommend these. They compete with the highest of high quality knots. The price is suitable for the knot. 45 dollars for 22mm so plan accordingly for the price increase. I will be getting a 26mm for sure

All my Wolf Wiskers have NC Ubersoft knots.  They are awesome.  But what about the handle?  I like that handle.

I'll PM you the guy who made it. We just had a kid but he will make one for you if you ask. The handle is real nice and feels good in the hand. I drew it myself and had an acquaintance of mine turn it
