[Image: Qu4nr6s.jpg][Image: zVwNOtz.jpg]I just received this brush from Bob from Elite razor, boy am I blown away. This magnificent piece of wood in the paladin lotus design has been transformed into a work of art. This brush is complimented with a Ramero knot that measures 25.5 x 53 total height of the brush 115. I just hope the knot does this handle justice, if not I will change it out for another. Thank you Bob.

From Elite Razor wbsite     Spalted Maple

This brush features a handcrafted handle by Robert Quinn from spalted Maple.  This spalted Maple comes from the hard maple, also known as rock or sugar maple.  The hard Maple is a cold-climate tree, and grows abundantly in the northeastern United States, Middle Atlantic States, and throughout the Great Lakes region, as well as in areas of eastern Canada. The heartwood is reddish in color, varying from light to dark reddish-brown. The growth rings produce a very fine brown line throughout the wood. The grain of hard maple is tight with a fine texture.  Maple burl is a popular choice for furniture, cabinets, counter tops and musical instruments.

Congratulations on a lovely handle and knot.  Bob does great work.  I've never tried a Romero knot, but they have received excellent comments here.
