Thanks for your interest. We don't accept pre-orders or use a wait list. There are pros and cons to every method/model in situations where demand exceeds limited production capacity. Using our Shopify-powered online store to offer small-batch releases works best for us given how we go about making brushes.

Unfortunately, releases so far have resulted in anxiety and frustration for many. We do the best we can. You might want to read this post for some insight on how Shopify works and "best practices" for making a purchase.

Have you been able to find a solution for international sales?

No, sorry. There is no solution absent a change in the law, which as it presently stands (and is/isn't enforced) favors ex-US manufacturers selling into the US and hobbles small US makers who are effectively deprived of an economically viable and legal means to offer their brushes for sale to ex-US buyers. Net-net, it sucks.

If you select an individual photo by clicking on it, you should be able to see the socket size under the photo and just to the left (below the serial number, which also indicates socket size).

Here's a screen-shot:

Some of those knots look like EXACTLY what I'm looking for.  Kind of a hybrid fan/bulb.  Very nice Ken!

I've been eyeing the ebony Lotus since I saw it a few releases back, it reminds me of the Dark Knight (Batman). Well, I was able to purchase it from the release today and I'm really excited!! It has the new knot (I read the knot notes), so it will be interesting to compare the brush to the other Paladins in my den:

Jorge, the ebony with gold lettering is just stunning.  And a nice bulb knot.  Congratulations on a great buy.

Congrats!

I add the PK-47 Disco in the first second but lost it. When pressed checkout it was out of stock.
