Thanks. It's NL6. Seems to be my most dense Paladin knot. I've only had one shave so far... When there is some better light I'll try to capture it's more emerald qualities.

A Falstaf in ebonite, 26 mm.
Modelled after a perfect vintage Simpsons.
One of two in the world.

And a P47 in cappucino.
Also ebonite.

A bit of shaving history!

Great brushes I'm partial to the very first chief (B&B) since I also have one.

It was an exciting project, introducing a wounderful new handle (the chief). I hope I wasn't a pain in the neck

Original Rooney 2XL Heritage between Paladin interpretations following the original handle blueprint.

This is one of the best handle designs for a face latherer. Current Paladin knots (these are 28mm *L6) are outstanding! Their handle quality has no real competition these days.

In my opinion, Paladin handles are unmatched in terms of design, ergonomics, and execution.
Current knots are outstanding as well.

Amphora 28mm, Ebonite

I’ve been salivating over a 28mm moe for a while now. The ergonomics look very good

I recently purchased several Moes. The ergonomics are indeed excellent and the L6 knots are second to none.

Wow that’s great to know Ken. It’s a lovely brush I’ll have to post a few photos when I get a chance.
