Ten days ago, Gustavo contacted me to advise that he had been able to recently obtain some beautiful Blonde Buffalo Horn. He sent me a pic of the material and I just couldn't resist the opportunity to purchase. Biggrin

I already own a couple of Romera brushes with Manchurian Fan knots, so I opted, this time, to proceed with a Manchurian knot in Bulb shape. Size chosen was 28x53.

Gustavo completed the brush, this morning, and straight from the workshop, sent me these four pics of what is heading my way. All I can say is that the brush looks incredible. The brush will ship, tomorrow, so I believe it's touch and go whether it arrives before Christmas. I have my fingers crossed, though.

That is really beautiful and unique horn. I recently picked up a couple of Romeras in Manchurian and just love them. Enjoy.

Thanks, guys. A new brush is always exciting, but this one, I truly can't wait to get my hands on. Gustavo has done an incredible job sourcing this material which I understand is more scarce than the darker horn.

That's sweet! I love my Romera horn. I'm sure you'll love this one. Look forward to your thoughts on the knot. I think I'll use mine for my next shave
Enjoy.

I purchased an already made brush from Gustavo. It looks beautiful it's a fan 30mm Manchurian. The only problem that I have found is that Gustavo is not very good at getting back to me. I've sent him numerous emails and asked just for tracking number and all he said he was shipping it and that was it. Can you tell me if you have any problems with Communications with Gustavo. Thanks

Personally, I've never had any communication issues with Gustavo. He's always replied quickly.
