Members have been asking us for months about our plans for the 2016 Forum brush. The brush has been in the works for nearly a year and we are finally ready to reveal some of the information.
  • The brush will be hand made by Aldo Siu of The Varlet
  • There will only be 100 of the brushes made
  • The hand tied knot will be made from a special batch of Two Band Badger
  • The handle will be hand turned and will be a shape that The Varlet has not offered before

Aldo will soon post some teaser photos and will reveal a bit more information about the brush. I had a chance to use a prototype of the brush and, it is awesome! Those lucky enough to get one will be extremely pleased.

I think over again my small adventures.
My fears, those small ones that seemed so big.
for all the vital things
I had to get and need.
And yet there is only one great thing,
the only thing,
To live to see the great day that dawns
And the light that fills the world.

Song of the Kitlinuharmuit ( Copper River Inuit)

 If it pleases the powers that be, coordinate this with the next Paladin and UFO release

If Aldo is making it I know it will be awesome! Count me in! If there will only be 100 made I'm sure that some people will miss out, any chance of bumping that number?

No....sorry. In fact, 100 is pushing it as Aldo is a one-man shop and he makes everything completely by hand. 100 is the absolute limit.

Look over his website. He has pretty much cleared old orders and will  likelyopen his book after the LE is finished. LEs have their attractions. But a big aspect is increasing brand awareness, not that our finer brushmakers need that. If you miss out on the LE target getting on the waiting list. You will be just as pleased and maybe give those seeking Paladins a measure of less competition. 100 brushes are alot for one man. One of these fine brushes are a lot for any of us.
