Dear intrepid brush fanatics, please meet the Vladimir Ferdman V7 handle complemented with a Shavemac 3 band premium silvertip knot. The handle and knot were sourced separately and put together with a little elbow grease.  

If you haven't seen many of these in the wild, you're in luck. I stumbled upon Vladimir's creations on a pen turning site, while looking for resins and materials for a Geoff Anderson brush. The quality of Vladimir's work shone through and I knew one would be in my near future. 

I contacted Vladimir via Etsy and he got back to me near instantly. His attention to detail and questions on the handle was impressive, we discussed dimensions, bore sizes and small changes to handle design. Once these details were finalized, the handle was ready in two days!

Vladimir's handle shape is superb and the handle is finished to a liquid sheen, yes his work is that good! The black peacock resin is beautiful and shimmers when you rotate the brush, I love the color nuances in this material. 


Here's a side pic, notice Vladimir's logo on the base of the handle.

Bernd's knot is just incredibly soft and there's something about 3 band silvertip  Blush

Thank you to Vladimir and Bernd for making this happen. This is the most beautiful brush in my collection. 


Thanks for reading.

Michael

Congratulations Michael.  Vladimir is an outstanding craftsman and we're fortunate to have him as a TSN artisan.  A superb custom handle with a Shavemac knot - it doesn't get any better than that!
