So, gentlemen, what do you think?

OK, OK, we all have to start somewhere. Mine is a modest beginning—zero. But, stay tuned, because everything is going to change very soon. Very, very soon. I have my first on the way, and it's scheduled to arrive today or tomorrow.

I'll have something noteworthy to add to this photograph.

Upon opening this thread, if I told you what I really think I'd be banned from the forum for life .........  Tongue

Creative post David!  We'll look forward to the pictures of your first Paladin, as well as the others which are likely to follow.

David, oh David do you know the can of worms you are opening? Paladin brushes, to some of us, are like potato chips. You can't have just one! If you are like me, you are apt to eat a bag before you know it.  Sadly, I know of no cure. I can't wait to see how you begin your collection and wish you luck and fun in finding everything you want, Paladin wise.

Dan, the obvious cure is to purchase an Elite Razor shave brush!

HARK.  

It's arrived.  Just took it out of the package.

Buck Rogers 28mm in Cobalt.  My goodness, it's a beauty.

Here is another capture.

Now, that is not a scuttle for tiny shaving brushes.  It's an invalid cup.  An antique for sure...from the Victorian Era.  Not sure how it found its way into our cabinet, but, there it was, and I thought the blue would look good with the Cobalt brush.

She's a beaut!  Your pictures really capture the beauty of the Cobalt stock.  Not many do.  Bravo.

Your first photograph really speaks to me, it may not have been intended to inspire, but it indeed has...  Euro 


Your first Paladin is beautiful, but be careful as they tend to multiply like Tribbles!

The symptoms have already started.

I think a couple 26mm Paladins are needed.  Ken sure makes a fine brush.

Very nice - there is nothing like that paladin notification to get the pulse racing
Not long before there are multiples in your photo shoot

Probably before the end of the month!  I know a good thing when I've found it.

Beautiful brush, David!  I agree with others in saying cobalt is one of the best colors on any brush.  Very striking.
