Indeed. I keep telling myself just a Sumo and a Lotus and I'm done. Still need to get both of those. I've had to resist falstaffs that have come up for sale. I'd be a goner if that exact Candy Stripe Falstaff came up for sale... That's the only good thing that's come with multiple brush purchases. I'm pickier about what I'll buy, and typically won't do so if I can't see the brush. Once I see one I like though, I'm sunk.  24

I'm two brushes away from retiring from the brush hunt. One is an ivory Paladin Chief; it's still number one on the runway.

I should have specified that is all I want of the Paladins... lol My list of brushes I want is growing shorter, though! Then I'll retire... Until a new LE I like pops up. Wink

Received the latest additions to the Paladin family yesterday. The El Dorado handle is becoming a favorite of mine with excellent feel and heft. The Bazooka rod is beautiful (pictures don't it justice, much more intricate in person) and the Lapis handle is stunning. Ken and Cody are creating some wonderful brushes, it really is a great time to be a wetshaver!

Jorge, those are two great additions to your Paladin collection.  Right now I'm intrigued by Paladin's upcoming 30mm Winston Churchill brushes.

Thanks, Ricardo. The 30mm brushes sound great, that's for sure.

The 28mm Somerset Lotus is striking in person and the knot/handle feel great in hand. Although I prefer 25-26mm knots, these 28mm Paladin knots feel so luxurious:

They're both great Jorge.  Ebony and ivory are tops on my list of handle colors.

The Cleo arrived yesterday, feels fantastic in hand. The size/weight is just about perfect for me, I'll give her a spin tomorrow:

Beautiful!  I like high contrast colors like lemon drop or ivory for the Cleo so the detail work on the cartouche is highly visible.
