Thanks. Looks like we're finally getting there. It doesn't take much to trip us, though. Like a machine going haywire, which happened with two a couple weeks back about the same time I was dealing with eBay scalpers and Shopify decided to throw us a curve by changing the way checkout worked without letting us know in advance..

There are lots of dependencies. We're running low on knots right now, although I think an order presently in the works will show up in time to avoid a break in stride. There will probably more of 28s for a little while coming up soon.

I had a legacy teaching commitment starting the second week of January that soaked up some time, but it was well worth it (see here). Now I'm 100% focused Paladin. (That said, our first grand-baby is due to arrive in about two week.)

Anyhow, it's all good!

I'm glad some appreciate that material. It's not for everyone, but I think it's very special, and ours is the real thing. Same source as the original. Also same stuff as was used for the Rooney Heritage-line brush handles. It was no longer being produced. We had it resurrected and established an exclusive supply arrangement.

Somerset is special! And very elegant. I love it.

Good to know that.

The Somerset is special. I have a Winston and a Sherlock in Somerset.

Another Somerset fan here. But the standard ivory grain is no slouch in the looks department either, probably the nicest version I've seen.

My Somerset Sherlock is about as good as they get for me. Handle ergonomics are great. Knot is stellar. So much to love about it.

I say this with the greatest respect, I'm so glad I missed tonight's release. More specifically my wallet is glad. Congrats to all who scored. I'm loving my Malachite El Dorado which landed last week.

I think it's the most ergonomic handle we make. I kept a Butterscotch Moe (engraving prototype) for myself. Par for the course that the last brush standing tonight would have been one of my top picks. It almost always works out that way.

That is a beauty. I wasn't fast enough to get the ebony Moe I was hoping for. Maybe next time.

A Moe in Someset would be one of the nicest looking brushes
