For some time now, I have been an admirer of the Lotus-style handle. I've also developed a love affair with Bernd's D01 2-Band hair. Presenting the first and only Shavemac 35mm D01 brush ever created. An amber-colored match made in heaven... and the giant has company...

Chris, your bulb is nicely shaped.   In my experience, Bernd's D01 2-band bulbs can sometimes be pointy.

Beautiful.  That's the most perfect non-Paladin Lotus shape I've seen.  It's a great testament to Bernd's skills...and an even greater testament to Cody Lynn's design  Wink

Beautiful resin, shape and knot. Congratulations on the acquisition. Bernd is a genius when it comes to making brushes. Being extremely hard to get a Lotus Paladin in the UK with natural hair, I asked Bernd some time back to make me a similar shape in Snakewood. Here is my 23mm D01 2band, a baby compared to yours Smile perfectly symmetrical just a wonky picture.

I also had M. Red construct a Lotus style in blue/black resin 25mm 2 band:

Thanks for the comment. Interesting to hear about the design. I was under the impression that this was not an original design, as the other Paladin offerings appear to be derivative works from Simpsons models. In any event, a massive hand tied knot composed of the best hair I have ever come across, and a beautifully turned handle for under 300 bucks... in a market with some ridiculous markups, this is impossible to beat...
