Here's the new Elite Razors custom metal (copper & silver) brush that Bob Quinn just did for me.  Picking it up at his studio Friday along with the knot for the Markus Herber brush.  I will create a new thread with all of the pics of the process of making this brush that Bob sent me.  Very cool!![Image: FJ8n683.jpg][Image: nXzhyzZ.jpg][Image: Nzg4t2r.jpg]

just received a preliminary picture of my brush from Gustavo at Artesania Romero.  He has been much more responsive but I can't be certain until the brush is in my hands.  He is telling me that he wants to put 2 more coats of oil on the handle and that it will ship Friday so I will keep everyone posted.  It looks beautiful as is and is very similar to the picture I chose of the brush that I wanted back in May when I ordered it.  I will be satisfied if this is the brush that I get.  It's Olive Wood with a 26mm fan shaped Manchurian 2 band knot.  If the knot isn't great, I can always take it to Bob at Elite Razors and have him swap the knot for one of his.  Wish me luck on this one!

Picked up the custom Bob Quinn metal brush (has some wonderful heft in the handle without being too heavy) this morning and the Saponificio Varesino was delivered along with the Markus Herber.  I will try to post some pics of all of them late today or tomorrow.  All beautiful brushes!!  Had a great time meeting Bob Quinn and talking to him about his business this morning.  Great guy!  Cool and laid back and a true artist!  Bought 2 more knots for my Markus Herber brush.  Got 2 caps with that brush so I bought a Manchurian and a High Mountain White from Bob this morning and setting the Manchurian right now.  Stay tuned!

SV 2.0 and Elite Razors brush bloomed. These are beautiful and I already know how much I am going to love them. I also set the Bob Quinn 26mm knots in the rings of the Markus Herber brush last night. Pics are before I wash them out and get the blooms.[Image: f6639b0b3ea7db8543fdb28c318f61a4.jpg][Image: 29d051586ace2ef634cd2d616d99891a.jpg][Image: 9fa3500879540a0b080eb8c98fd10602.jpg][Image: 7d2878d18b6fed99384c07dbbbc01d38.jpg]

3) Markus Herber-Rubberset 400 replica in deep bronze color handle with gold cap and electric blue cap
4) Elite Razors(Bob Quinn custom designed)-copper and silver metal handle in my shape choice with 26mm fan shaped Manchurian 2 band knot
5) Turtleship-Machine design handle with 24mm synthetic knot.

Last but not least, the brush I ordered from Artesania Romero is finally shipping to me this coming week after placing my order in May.  I will never order anything from Gustavo again but the olivewood brush I ordered from him with a 26mm 2 band fan shaped Manchurian knot should be beautiful if he does it right.  We'll see.  Like I said, I'll post pics as the brushes come in.

It will be a few weeks to get the other 3 in. They will probably come in in this order; 1) Artesania Romero (maybe, supposed to ship Friday but he wants the oil to dry a bit more so supposedly shipping Monday), 2) PantaRei (may ship late this week or early next week, Allesandro is awesome and keeps me updated on status), 3) El Druida (Javier has been responding to emails and will let me know status as he gets it going, says he's excited to see how this one looks because of the materials I chose and how the bottom cap will fit on, rustic ebony then olivewood and then rustic Ebony bottom cap).

Used the SV 2.0 today and WOW!! What a brush. Took some pics of the lather build up. Loaded some Connecticut Shade for about 30 seconds and then my lather build was about a minute and I had enough for 3-4 passes. I did my usual 2.5 passes with my Sabre. This brush is outstanding in so many ways. High end build quality, extremely soft brush tips, feels great in the hand and the lather it can build.....my, my, my!! Here are some pics.[Image: a3d103e0c4daa57fca3b7b2b125b4123.jpg][Image: 152f27e126a1705ab6cd2847d76da7fe.jpg][Image: 2fbde498c3c8d5f1c870dd4f00cb9740.jpg]

Used the Elite Razor metal brush today. As always Bob did an outstanding job on this brush. Always love his knots and this handle has a nice amount of heft and feels great while loading and lathering. Here are a couple pics.
Loaded for 30 seconds with some CRSW classic soap then building the lather for 1 minute with my stainless travel bowl. Shaved with the OneBlade Core V2. I am at our other property that has electricity. Our home has not had power since the remnants of Hurricane Irma hit Atlanta Monday. I brought this brush along because I really wanted to use it. Great choice!!
