Last week I took delivery of two brushes from my friend, Bernd. The first is a 35mm Unique 2-band Silvertip bulb on a jade barber-style handle. The second brush is a 32mm Unique D01 2-band on a coral M7 style handle. The results of Bernd's efforts are nothing short of spectacular. I photographed the brushes next to a Varlet Mega and the gigantic Morris & Forndran 36mm brush for a size comparison. Can't wait for my next "special delivery" from Bernd. Enjoy the photos...

Regarding the coral, you are a brave man setting a D01 2-band bulb at a diameter:loft ratio of less than 1:2!

Amazing looking brushes man.. I still think the M&F has the most amazing looking knot I've ever seen!
Btw when you say "Unique" what do you mean? Is it a different 2 band?

This is a Unique knot, not D01 2-band, my friend
