My new Paladin PK-47 with an S-knot, and Falstaff with L-knot. The ivory looks even better in person as you can see the grain patterns that just add that much more to these stunning handles. The handle feel amazing and just screams top quality. Haven't used the yet but will post pics later tonight after use.

Wow what a looker. Thats the one that i really wanted. Love horn handles. I got the Falstaff first and was going to put it out there to see if whoever got the horn would trade just for the heck of it, but worked out good i guess cause i got matching ones.

I'm surprised by how good the Sherlock looks in person. It's very well balanced.

At least for now, we're labeling all of our brushes as Select Badger. What that simply means is that we selected the knot for use in our handles.

We started kicking around the idea of dumping labels that imply a particular grade of hair here in the first half of last year. One of the problems with type-grade labels is that many of them have come to be used so variously that they've lost whatever clear meaning they might once have had. And then there are the differences not only between but also within so-called batches. We learned something about that from having over 450 Blonde Badger and Finest-knotted brushes pass through our hands over the course of about six months last year. That's not bad. It's just the way it is. But what it leads to is different people getting different ideas about what Blonde Badger means based on different experiences. That carries into confused and confusing discussions and leads to conflicting expectations and more endless discussion.

If you look at your card, it will have a knot code that identifies whether your knot is an S or L-type along with a date code for the knot order. Knot Notes posted on our website provide information corresponding to the codes.

Thank you for schooling me on this. I am still a noob trying to understand everything. I appreciate it.
