This is my last brush for a while. 22mm, Grade A Silver Tip (TGN), temporarily set at 50mm. We'll see how I like it before it's glued permanently. I guess the inspiration is obvious. The handle material is alternative casein, turns well and polishes good. I also turned an Emperor style handle out of the same material, 22mm, I might put a TGN 2 band fan in that one.

Simply stunning! I love the look of the material and your turning skills look very! impressive Thumbsup

I have a couple of brushes fitted with (TGN) 22mm Super Silvertip (bulb) knots, both have a loft of 52mm (couldn't have been set lower without "extra" drilling or by non placement of coins into bottom of knot holes), personally I wish both brushes had a little more backbone ie The final loft height had been in the 48 to 50mm range...
