Hello Gentlemen,

I have a brush for sale today that I bought from Patrick on here at TSN. I paid him $130 and I am looking for WAS $126 NOW $105  NOW $80 NOW $70 shipped via paypal. Will be shipped in a Muhle travel screw top tube with the knot dimensions labeled on the outside. NO TRADES PLEASE. Shy

Here are the details.

Vintage Plisson-tapered, faceted handle (8 sides)-in a dark cream and light brown color-natural horn material-bottom is typical Plisson fashion, threaded to separate into two separate parts

Handle condition is very nice. The threads are nicer than any of the other Plissons I have had. It has been coated with the Microcrystalline Renaissance Wax to give it a nice protective coating. 
 
Diameter-20mm
Loft-51mm
Bloom-56mm
Canopy Height-19mm

The hair is in very nice and for those who enjoy well sorted hair, mostly (tannish) natural white hair with very few black tips. No curly tips or gelling effects. Just natural spikey clumps after wetting in warm water.

The knot itself is a bit different than you might expect. It has more backbone than I prefer. It has quite a bit of stiffness due to the bulb shape and even after applying so pressure, it does not give up the splay like a typical Plisson knot with a high loft will. The facefeel is going to be noticeable as well. It is most definitely a unique batch of hair. It is not compare to any other knots I've tried. I can't exactly describe it as scritchy or scrubby but others would probably find that accurate. I wouldn't recommend this for someone looking for velvety, uber soft tips, who like floppy knots.

The inside of the handle shows the age of the brush as the knot is held in the handle by aging glue. I am not sure if this is the original glue used to set the hair into the handle but again this is shown clearly in the pictures and we are not looking at a current production handle or hair.

Feel free to ask any questions and have a great day! Cheers!

Here is a Plisson Plexi that I picked up from Jesse from here on TSN. I really like this brush. It is a very interesting brush as the handle is to die for. The knot does have some black hairs but to the feel on my face, this is very very soft. It is not dense nor very bully or high lofted like some of the modern Plissons but I do think this is a HMW, possibly EuroWhite grade of badger. 

The specs on the knot are: 
Knot Diameter: 18mm
Loft: 50mm
Bloom Width: 65mm
Canopy Height: 24mm

Bought for $230 a couple of months ago and willing to let it go for $190 NOW $175 as I am getting ready for a big move and need some dinero to prepare. Let me know if you have any questions.
