That's a beautiful knot on the Commodore.

The x3 is a real sleeper, you don't hear it mentioned often, but it is worthy of more love. The Ch-2 in the photo has only been used three times.

I'm picturing one with the lower portion trimmed down and then attached to a barber handle bottom. Hmm?

Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts on whether I should get a Keyhole 1 or Keyhole 2 in Best? They don't seem to be that talked about, and I have found a deal on both that I don't feel I should pass up

Jake, I'm not familiar with the keyhole style handle, but the difference is purely knot size. #1 is 19mm diameter with a 45mm loft; #2 is 20mm with 50mm loft. Personal preference really.

I have the 3 and 4 Keyhole. A very comfortable shape to use.

Buy whichever you prefer the knot size of. They will both be a little small and similarly sized.

A great brush.

I have a Keyhole 4, so all I can do is vouch for the shape of the handle. I don't think I'd be happy with anything but the 4, but if you have some brushes that match the size dimensions of the Keyhole 1 and/or 2 and you can imagine it working for you, I'd say go for it. Personally, I've always been a Simpson brush aficionado, so keep that in mind.

I prefer larger brushes such as the Tulip 3 and M7. I do own a Keyhole 2 in Best and it is a fine performer with a handle that has a great feel to it. I would not hesitate to buy a 2 or larger. The 1 is not quite large enough to be a daily user but would be tolerable in a rotation of several brushes.

I wanted something a little smaller, I don't have a 19-22mm but I have 24, 26 (Paladin Sherlock which is the same style handle), 28ish. I used my new Case 1 in best for the first time the other day and fell in love with it and as a result want something similar that is just slightly bigger and the fact that the Keyhole 1 & 2 are so similar has really thrown me off and I would love to buy both but I feel like there is no point because they are so close. That's my thoughts behind it if that helps; thanks for the input everyone

Faux Ivory Chubby 3 Manchurian just arrived. Knot looks perfectly formed in unused state. I'll add a bloom shot, later.
