These beautiful handles were purchased a few years ago I changed out out knots as I saw fit, beautiful handles needed beautiful knots. From left to right this Julie/Rosetta brush has the Elite knot 24 that comes out to a 26, next is a Julie/Bronze and Copper then a Bishop/multi color these 2 brushes have beautiful TGN 24 knots (got very lucky). The 2nd photo from left to right the Raptor/Milky Green (26) and DWW-3/Blue and White (24) both have Declaration knots, the Julie/Tiffany brush as a 24 silvertip 2 band Shavemac. 3rd photo is a Julie/Black with Red Stripe (I will be changing out this knot in the near future)

Thanks again, I have a few Romera Manchurian knots and you got me thinking that maybe I should put one into the Black and Red Striped handle.

Excellent!

I have been thinking about replacing the knot in one of my WW brushes.

I have three of them and the handles are my favorites. They are all TGN knots though. Two finest bulbs and a grade A silvertip.

Thanks. 

Peter is meticulous. A real pleasure to deal with. Straight talking and responsive. I have a great deal of respect for him and every other individual who has made their passion their work and excelled at it. It takes a lot of talent and determination and guts to be the boss and put the faith in the work. 

The blue brush is an absolute beast. That's a 30mm knot that's 33mm out of the handle. Sort of low lofted. Gel tipped and enough lather to shave a square mile.

A few guys like Peter and Ken and Cody abd Matt at DeReutem create a glass like finish and final polish. Doug Korn too.

It's not something that is easy to describe or even communicate with pictures even. To see and hold these kinds of brushes is encounter something very unique. It's a level of quality and craftsmanship that isn't needed to get a shave but is very much admirable. Hard to quantify but easily enjoyed.
