I was greeted with an email from Doug this afternoon informing me my brush was complete. I cannot wait to give this one a spin. Especially because it's my first custom made brush.

It's a Vie Long Epsilon two band brush with a 27x50 knot. The knot is absolutely perfect for me with insane backbone and softness. However, the handle was a bit small for my hands. When I receive this brush, I'll be sending my other Epsilon Doug's way for another knot transplant.

Very nice. Is that the same knot in the brush that is in the top picture? The color looks completely different, but nice nonetheless. That handle is a beauty.

I think it's just the flash that makes the hair appear whiter in the knot picture

I believe it's the mint green pearl color

Wow, Joe! That is lovely-looking handle! Congratulations and Doug turns some beautiful handles. I have a few in that shape, also.
I believe you are going to find it to suit your hand like a glove! It is an extremely comfortable style! Nice colour, also! Thumbup

Thanks folks for all your kind words..... 

FYI, the knot is the same in all the photos. It's just a combo of my cheap camera and regular bulb lighting for the handle shots and my florescent shop lights and flash for the knot photos. This is my first experience with an Epsilon knot. Beautiful knot --- string tied and with a clear knot glue plug. I think this is the firmest, fullest/densest knot I have seen and I've seen a bunch. Set at 49mm loft it will be scrubby but it also has super nice hook tips as well. Once this knot fully blooms and breaks in a bit it will be a beauty. Joe enjoy your new D7 handled brush.... Doug

The colors and swirling remind me of the green, agate marbles I played with as a kid.

Beautiful handle!

That is a beauty! I may have missed it but did you order the Epsilon knot or is it a transplant? Either way, lovely brush.

Celestino, very much look forward to your thoughts on receipt. I have been using my Epsilon lately after some of the threads- such a solid brush [literally]. Hope that yours arrives soon my friend!

It's a transplant, the handle was too short for my liking
