These are wonderful Elite Razors brushes, and I hate to sell them.  They have soft tips and excellent backbone like my vintage Rooney Finests, and they feel great in my hand.  But I have progressive muscle and strength loss in my arms, and the stone handles, while beautiful, make them a little too heavy to be comfortable for me now.  They are in great condition and have not shed.  Each would retail for $180.

1. Bloody Basin Jasper (Ovation handle) Manchurian White 2-Band 28mm/57mm.  $165 $145 shipped CONUS.  SOLD on eBay for $160

Are these fans or bulbs...?  Look kind of hybrid to me.

More bulb-like.

John, any chance you can provide weights?  Those are beautiful brushes and I love my brush from Elite.  I'd like to compare the added weight relative to typical handle materials.  Either way, best of luck!

On my spring scale, the Jasper is about 5.25 ounces, the Onyx 5.125 ounces, and the Lapis 4.5 ounces.

Thanks, John. For a random comparison, my Thater 27mm weighed in at 2.5 oz so that Lapis would be less than 2x heavier.

How slippery (or not) do these get in use, John?

Although they look really smooth, whether wet or dry they feel in my hand about the same as acrylic handles.
