Bought this brush a good while back online and i can't remember who makes it ... does anyone have any idea?  I'd probably recognize the name if i heard it.
 Thanks for any help !

Not sure of the turner but the handle looks like shokwood or stabilized wood. Check out Beyond Wood Products.

Please don't hate me and I hope this doesn't come across as terribly demeaning but do you need to know who exactly made it? I am sure many of the forum supporters, Vladimir Ferdman, Brad Sears, Elite Razor Works, Doug Korn, etc could source something similar or the same material and easily replicate that shape. Or is the synthetic knot something I am missing?

Either way, I can always support the desire for another custom brush.

No i don't " have to " know who made it ... was just seeing if anyone recognized it on here since i purchased it used from another member at one time. It's not that big of a deal

LuvWetShavin, thanks for your reply. I figured that the overall finished product was what you were after. I would recommend contacting a few artisans before hand as this type of resin specifically from the maker of ShokWood does not sell directly to customers. He prefers to wholesale to vendors who can distribute for him. So if that is a problem, I am sure some members here on board who have many more custom handles from artisans, they may have a better suggestions on alternative material. Many of my handles are wooden from LoveYourShave.

I'm curious, how deep of a knot you hoping to have set?

Dennis Coluccio works in mixed wood/resin designs. 
But I don't think he uses synthetic knots.
