Thought I would give Vladimir a little shout out, I have really been enjoying the brushes he's been turning out. All but 2 were bought from his store and 2 were custom ordered. He's a pleasure to deal with. If you have any brushes from him please share a photo. He has several in his etsy store I'm having a hard time not buying Smile

What's the knot in the fourth brush from the left of the first picture? It stands out from the others to my eye. All very lovely brushes though! The last 2 on the right of the first picture look especially appealing to me!

Here is the brush that Vladimir custom-made for me recently. I like calling it an "F7" (Ferdman7) given that it has elements of my favorite handle designs M7 and L7 Smile

Thought I'd share (and brag a bit) about this new custom brush I'll soon receive from Vladimir. He just sent me these pics. Excited to receive it! Aaaaa

Vladimir is the artisan who creates the brushes under his Etsy store name "Love Your Shave". He puts brushes up for sale, and you can make custom orders. Here's another brush I just got from his store.

I'm not sure of his knot source.   The knot has very soft tips and nice, but not overly firm, backbone.  It has very luxurious feel on the face, no scratchiness at all.

I had purchased 3 brushes from Vladimir about 2 1/2 years ago that I still have today and use on occasion. It was a pleasure to work with him and the brushes look better today then when I first received them.

He's favored TGN Finest for a long while, but I don't know if he's expanded his offerings. They're certainly striking knots.

Yes I think he uses TGN Finest but very frequently his customers will supply their own knots (as I did).
