The El Dorado has both a crown and a bead. The Winston is shorter, has bead and also a groove (for lack of a better term) above the base.

Just fixed the link in the OP (I think).

I'm glad that you're looking at the 5 minute cart issue.  It has happened to me twice where I have had something in the cart and then when I press the pay it says the brush is out of stock.

Come to think of it, I think a few times after that was implemented that happened to me as well.

It was supposed to have been implemented from the beginning. But it wasn't supposed to have been 5 minutes of protection in the cart. We didn't want someone to be able to load a cart with a bunch of brushes and then take them all to checkout at the same time. The objective, and what we were were supposed to have, was protection commencing on advancement to check-out.

The reports we've been able to pull from Shopify simply show items as "abandoned in checkout". But a few recent descriptions of customers' experiences made it clear they did not abandon brushes in checkout. I called PayPal on Monday. They do nothing on their side. On their system it simply comes down to who submits payment first. The failure is occurring on Shopify's server. Cody is working with Shopify. They're supposed to be performing analysis based on several specific examples we provided them. We'll see what comes out of it.

Ah ok, thanks for the clarification on that.

The 26 mm El Dorado comes comes in at just under 58 mm. I'm about halfway through turning a small batch of 28s, which are a little over 60.5 mm. 

Winstons, including 26s, 28s, and 30s are all a bit over 49 mm. They just gain in girth, not height.

All of these measurements of pre-finishing, which can take off a bit, but not enough to matter.

Yes. We already turned a few of the handles, but they're not finished yet. And we have 10 sample knots. And order of 28 mm and 30 mm knots is in the works. I'd guess we'll start including a few 30 mm brushes in release by late April or early May, but that's just a guess at this point.

Since we don't scale the Winston proportionally, we're going to give different names to the three sizes. The 28 mm brush will be the Churchill (more girth, a little more imposing name), and the 30 mm brush will be the WCXL, unless we think of something we like better.

I'll try to get a side-by-side pic posted sometime soon.

That was a prototype. More like 58 mm.

Thanks, the longer tapered waist looks like it would have a excellent grip to knot balance/feel.

The Tut was basically adapted from the El Dorado. I used the latter's CAD drawing as a point of departure. Thought it would be quick and easy. Turned out to take longer and be more frustrating than any of the other new designs. It will be interesting to see how it's received. Whether a handle will fit well with a particular hand depends largely on the hand and how a brush is held.
