I'm going to kill my nephew ( Phil will understand). I have the faux ivory and it is well worth the full retail. This opportunity is not to be missed.

What's the white bit at the top of the handle around the knot?

This is indeed an awesome opportunity. I have this handle with the horse hair knot and it's very nicely made. Has a good heft to it and is very ergonomic.

Thanks for the special deals Phil! 
The Fatips you found are also a phenomenal offer.

If I had the pocket change right now I'd be on this brush!

I have the faux ivory version of this brush.  It along with my Thater 4125/1 are the only badger brushes left in my den.

An elastic band with a Vie-Long tag. Simply remove it when you get the brush. Biggrin

My Ivory has been an absolute joy. I think it shed all of 3 hairs that were at best 3/4" long in the first month. I use it almost daily rotating on occasion with a Wee Scot and a synthetic ( when Pyewacket relinquishes it ). The beehive handle is comfortable and the knot fully dried out in 24 hours. If one can find fault, the logo printed on the base will wear off unless you hang the brush. Mine did, but I know what it is- my best brush and I'd kill for a second- and may.

Does the beehive have the same knot as the Lord randall?.

The silvertip hair varies a bit batch to batch. That said, the knots are very similar.

I had a an earlier butterscotch version of the brush and it was great. This is a really good deal. Just ordered one.

Just received mine. I had forgotten just how beautiful these knots are. A great deal at full retail. A real buy on sale. Thanks Phil.  [attachment=17810]

I've been using my beehive silver tip for a little over a week now. I can see it becoming my top badger it's a great all around brush I love it. I also got the Lord randall horse hair. I would recommend anyone to get a vie-long brush, so far their brushes have been the best bang for your buck brushes I've gotten.

The only caveat is the Vie Long logo on the base easily wears off. Mine is long gone, but I KNOW what I have and love it. If such details matter rig a non maring base of some sort.

I agree I know what I got the logo means nothing to me. Performance is all that matters to me and for price you can't beat it IMO, great badger brushes for everything like advertised.

Hmm...the logo on the bottom of my brush is engraved.

Lucky you. Mine is the faux ivory. It still is of no importance.  If Vie-Long ever makes another badger my membership in 'the simplicity movement' is in real trouble.
