Plain and simple, Bob's work knocks me out. I thought Elite Razor deserved its own appreciation thread.

Despite my poor photography skills, the brushes speak for themselves.

This was my first. Bob made it just for me! Bethlehem Olivewood. 26x52 Manchurian White fan. Besides that it's pretty to look at, it's well balanced and the knot is a great blend of backbone and ultra soft tips. Dig the figure in the grain that looks like like an old-school telephone handset.

Nice brushes, Georg. I was admiring that baby blue on the ER website. It sure is pretty! Thanks for sharing your collection. Have you any experience with Bob's razor handles? I'm beginning to look at them in earnest (but there are soooo many choices!) Biggrin

Here's another of my Elite Razor brushes. From the Reclaimed Wood series.

No, I have not owned a razor handle. I am sure they are great quality though.

Let's not overlook Bob's great stone brushes.  The Gold Laced Onyx on the left has one of Bob's 24mm Manchurian White knots.  The Bloody Basin Jasper on the right has a 24mm Envy White knot.  Both knots measure out to 26mm + at the top of the handle, and are set to a 50mm loft.

Not especially so. Some perhaps, but not a lot of hooked tips going on. However, the tips are so dagged soft. Major luxury.

Very nice brushes, Ricardo. I just picked up my first ER stone brush. While Spiny Oyster is a shell material, Bob had this listed on the stone page.

Bob is great to work with and, as stated, does superb work. I have three of his brushes and have put two of his Manchurian White knots in other handles.

My "Elite's"

I have 3 of Bob's Manchurian White knots and one of his complete brushes. 

Love them.

Used one this morning and after the last pass lathered up my face again just to enjoy the brush. The knots are spot on for me. Dense, soft, and just the right amount of backbone. Super white tips with virtually no black hairs or strays.

Totally agree!  I have one of his Coffee & Cream Swirls (posted in Bob's thread) and go to it regularly - it is as good or better than the big name brushes standing beside it.  Excellent, excellent knots.

Now I have this one on the way...Copper & Silver Swirl
