Yep, ER knots are great. I'm so pleased with the 26 and 28 sizes. They have for me, a near perfect combination of density, backbone, flow-through and soft tips. My preference is the bulb shape.

I have the exact bethlahem olive wood, 28mm Manchurian as the op. Pretty good brush right out of the gate. First experience with a Manchurian and I have to say when I got a couple days growth and need something to exfoliate good. I reach for this brush. Besides the wood is really unusual to see in person. Love it and great communication with elite. One off requests no problem.

I would like to applaud Bob for the unique woods he gets in, his superior craftsmanship in creating outstanding wooden, resin, stone and metal handles.

I have six of Bobs wooden handles and one resin. Because Bob is very versatile, in which I mean you can either get one of Bobs knots in his handle or you can have him set another vendor's knot in his handles or you can just buy a handle and sit on it until you see a knot that you want to be set into that handle (this is something that I do). Also Bob will custom make a handle if you desire. The latest addition to Bobs Elite brand is his logo which appears on his newest handles which enhances his handles and completes his brand.

Sorry about this, this photo was taken a while back. The brush on the left is a Doug Korn with a Elite Manchurian 24 (26), the bush on the right is a Bob Quinn with a Elite Manchurian 24 (26)

Great looking brushes, Steven! Bob sure makes beautiful and highly functional tools. The coin logo in the handle is a nice touch. A while back I recall Bob saying he preferred letting his work speak for itself rather than adorning it with extraneous distractions. This is tastefully done.

I still use my ER brushes frequently. Enjoy your shaves Smile
