This is my latest acquisition from Bob Quinn / Elite Razor.  It features a 26mm black synthetic knot set to a loft of 55mm in a briar handle.  I've used it seven times and am quite happy with the handle's looks and ergonomics.

The first picture is Bob's, while the rest are mine.  I don't have to say anything about how nice the handle is, as the pictures tell it all.

I'll leave my comments on the knot until a future thread, in which I plan to compare 26mm black synthetic v. Plisson type knots.  However, like all synthetic knots with sufficient loft, this one creates quality lather quickly.  Today' shave was with Asylum Old Virginia, which excels on all performance criteria and is my top rated tobacco scent.

Very nice.  I am interested in your thoughts on the loft as you use it more.
