Hello Everyone. I just joined the forum but have been on a sister forum for years. Also have been out the scene for years. Obviously new products and companies have come in since then. 

Well I want to build my Holy Grail of a really soft brush with a good backbone. I want a custom handle made in Jade. I am looking at 28-30mm High Mountain White knot in a nice Jade handle. 

Who would be my go to guy for this. I guess I can get the HMW knot from TGN. 

Your comments please.

I suggest Bob Quinn of Elite Razor.  Superb craftsman for making the handle.   He can make any design you like in the material of your choice.   Moreover, he is now sourcing his own line of premium knots which are superb. His High Mountain  White is a 24mm, but it's so dense it requires a 26mm opening in the handle.  If you still want a larger knot, you can buy it elsewhere and send it to Bob for a handle.

I've used a guy not on here, I found on another forum, but goes under the name Bristle Brushwerks

Here are some links to his work:

Wood Customs:

He worked closely with me to make exactly what I was looking for (the brush in my avatar is my custom, I added the googly eyes =P )
I provided my own knot ( Romera Finest fan shape), but he has a lot of knots to choose from, and he has Jade rod stock. 

Let us know what you end up with!

For sure. I have two brushes on the way. One 30mm and other 24 mm Once I get them I can decide on the actual knot size ....
