Here is the description from the Brad Sears website:


The Wanderer/26 is our re-interpretation of a little-known classic shaving brush that's recently seen resurging interest. Shown here in rich Lapis Lazuli resin with our 2-band Manchurian knot in Fan profile. We no longer carry the Manchurian knots but your brush can be filled with our 2-Band Silvertip knot in Fan or Bulb. Please see our Rod Inventory page to see what's available. 

The Wanderer comes gift boxed with complete usage and care instructions, a signed Certificate of Authenticity, and our one-year written warranty!


Approx. Dimensions The Wanderer/26
Total Height 97-99mm
Handle Height 46mm
Loft 50mm
Handle Diameter 38mm
Knot Diameter 26mm
Weight 70 grams

Do you mean it was actually "off" for a while?  What's your secret?

26mm knot set to a 50mm loft is certainly to my liking.  This brush is a very nice concept - a Rover type handle with a larger knot than the original Rover.

For my taste, the one in the middle has the best knot.  A very nice, symmetrical bulb.

Thank you.  I think so too.  I went with the Blonde.  Can't wait for it arrive.

This is the 2 Wanderer I have
I received one month ago the lapis one with a Manchurian 26mm knot from Brad
The one in cobalt has a knot set by Scott from Declaration Brushworks

I used it this morning and the knot is perfect!

Beautiful brushes, gentlemen. The Wanderer/26 is a swell example of brushery, for sure! The barrel shape looks very comfortable. I've always found that linear handle look appealing. Enjoy your shaves Smile

Amazing looking brushes! I can't tell which knot I like better but I can tell you that the tips on the Declaration look VERY similar to my Wiborg White Badger! Enjoy both in good health
