The knot in that photo is loosely set at 53 mm because that's where it wants to be. Socket size is 26 mm, handle height is 48.5 mm, and the handle's maximum outside diameter is close to 43 mm.

Nice!

Larger than I expected by the picture alone.

I like the different curve angles. Similar but distinctly different from top to bottom.

Cool.

Thanks. The curves below the top were driven entirely by ergonomics. It took a few prototypes to dial in the waist. It essentially incorporates the PK-47's concave section and stretches it out. The lower transition is filleted more aggressively for the sake of a comfortable hold. We left the top edge a little more pronounced. 

We had no time for design last year until we took a break for the holidays. It's nice to get back to it. That's where it all started for us.

I will add..
It's truly heartening to see original designs being developed here, rather than more of the same.
Nice!

Absolutely. And beautiful, ergonomic original designs, not just new for the sake of being new.

Cheers, Steve

Bill, I noticed the similarity when I saw the picture.

Ken-  I really like the matte finish on the handle.  I know its probably because it hasn't been polished but is it crazy to think that anyone else besides me would enjoy a matte handle?  I've never really seen one in the wild and its probably counter to all the thinking behind premium brushes like these.  Just wondering if that design thought has any legs?

One of the three brushes I've mainly used over the past several months is a matte (or "satin") finished 26 mm Falstaff turned from alternative ivory. We've talked seriously about putting some brushes with satin-finished handles in the shop, but haven't done it yet. I think ivory is probably the best candidate for that application.
