Hi, everyoone. Just received this Matthew North Marting brush this afternoon. Super stoked. Have wanted one of these for a while.
Handle is hand poured, hand turned resin, colored with mica powder. Beautifully done. Has a 22mm Virginia Sheng Silvertip knot. Absolutely lovely.

Thanks, gentlemen. For those not familiar with Matt, his etsy store is here.    https://www.etsy.com/shop/Brushguy?ref=unav_listing-r

Aleksy, he makes handles in whatever combination of colors he has a fancy to, then lists them for sale with the knot of your choice. In that way, no two handles are ever truly the same. But he does not do custom orders. You basically go to his site and pick the handle you want from among what he has posted.
I love the shape of his handles. They fit my hand really well. Very comfy.
I had not tried the Virginia Sheng knot before. This one is lovely. Decent backbone, nice soft tips with no scritch, just a bit of scrub.
Kav, yeah. Looks like copper and rootbeer to me, as well.

Has anyone tried using Dichroic glass for  straight scales or? It's not my style, to FERENGI dress clothing but very interesting.
