Thanks! 

Allow me to recommend this book (fittingly published by Paladin Press): http://www.ebay.com/itm/222420614569.

I snagged it on eBay today. Don't have it yet, of course, but sounds like it might be just the ticket.

Guess no one thought my book find was amusing.Confused

Oh well.

Heads-up for an alternative finish in Ivory. The upcoming (March 2) release will include a Chief and a Sherlock in Satin Ivory. Same stuff, just different technique that produces a subtly different look and feel.

Is it more of a matte, as opposed to glossy, finish?

Yes, with a softer texture. I've been using one for quite a while. It has picked up some "polish" just from being handled.

Does the reduced polishing give it a feeling of greater "grip"?

Possibly, but it's subtle enough I wouldn't make that representation. It's definitely a different, more tactile sense for me.

Maybe I'll finally snag one of your fine brushes!  Thanks for the updates.  As for the book, I'd say the title accurately describes many of the members here.  Tongue

If it helps, I went to eBay and looked at the book.  Actually tempted as I judge a book by the cover.

I noticed the different colored letters on the two Falstaff brushes in disco. 

The book is interesting. Sounds like an instruction manual for being a squeeky wheel. 

Is the new finish achieved by tumbling or something like scotch brite rubbing?

Sometimes we just let the spirit move us.

Judging by a couple of reviews, the book sounds like it was written by a supreme asshole (or maybe he just had a twisted sense of humor). An amazing find in any case.

We don't tumble anything. All finishing is done by hand on a lathe or on a wheel. Cody doesn't use a polishing wheel to achieve the "satin finish". It's a sequence of hand-sanding on a lathe both before and after engraving.

I'm interested in seeing reports of the new finish in the wild.  I like the matte look and curious to see how they feel in the hand.

Less slippy when wet, I think. There is some texture. Like a smooth rock. No roughness.

I'd guess not until April. Late this month at the earliest. The first ones are still in Oregon.

Awesome, Corey! The Sumo feels great in the hand and the Select knots are fantastic. Hope you enjoy your new Paladin.
