So I ended up with getting two: the ivory with silver pewter and the tortoise with golden pewter.
While I still struggle with the "pewter" aesthetically, I find the knots to be EXCELLENT in softness, density and shape.
I would rate the knot above shavemac 2 band silver tip in softness and face feel.

I see the pewter design, and think: thats where all the soap will build up.

So far this has been no issue while using. And post use it is rinsed off easily. For me it is more aesthetics, but that is very subjective obviously.
The heft and balance of the handle is very good. The knot is excellent. The price is not outrageous for what you get.
Will the pewter stand the test of time...? We will see.

The ivory is lovely.  I can understand your "struggle" with the pewter ring, but it does add character to what otherwise would be a very plain handle.

These two make a great couple. The Ivory looks quite special though. Regarding your rating of the knots, I agree 100%.

High praise for these knots. Well deserved I'm sure. I go back and forth on the pewter/gold band, sometimes I like the look and other times, not so fond of it.
