Great that you were able to get a Romera.  That knot will have some serious backbone and scrub.

Thanks Ricardo, it was only a 3.5 month wait! LOL

Great looking handle, I've always thought the dimpled sections look really cool and are (presumably) very functional for added grip.

Love that handle. Almost ordered it and will probably still order that one but I saw this one on his FB page and had to have it. He is going to put a 26mm Manchurian fan shaped knot in it for me.

Soooooo, I ordered my brush on May 19 and I have sent several emails inquiring about the progress of the order and I have not gotten any responses at all. It's like, complete silence after I placed my order. Since it was a special order, he sent me a Paypal invoice for 119.25 euros. I paid it shortly after I received it and since then, nothing. Anyone else have this experience with Gustavo?

I waited almost 4-months. I sent e-mails and there were no replies; eventually it arrived. I should tell you to watch your account because he does show when the brush ships, but don't expect an tracking information. About 12 days after it showed shipped, it arrived.

Hey mate thanks for informing us. I purchased a knot. Same experience, nil communication regarding filling the order.

How are his knots? Compareable to Paladins? I love that handle!

I prefer Paladin 2-band knots over Manchurian, but that's just me.

What's the difference? I haven't tried a manchurian knot but I really like my Paladin knot and Thater 2 band and hoping for something similar to those.

I find 2-band silver tips to be softer and less scrubby than a Manchurian knot.
