I have a Beehive that has never touched water or lather. The pics and stories here are making it challenging to keep it pristine and unused.

I've been eyeing a Moe for quite a while. I recently sold a Krakatoa and decided I would like to add another to the den. This 28mm was offered in the last drop with the new NL5 knot. For me these are fantastic knots so I pulled the trigger. Here it is fresh from the tube. 

A quick hand lather confirmed the great feel of the knot. The Moe handle is very ergonomic and reassuring to hold. 

It's challenging to photograph the beauty of this resin. Here's the bottom edited to show the contrasting "chunks".

Krakatoa is a favorite of mine. You beat me to it! I went with Neptune instead!

Looks great in Neptune. Is that a 28mm?

Vesuvius at home... such a stellar material in a very comfortable handle (Moby).

The current Paladin knots are a match to the superior handle designs. There are no better 2 Band knots out there right now.

That Neptune handle is remarkable. I had not seen that particular material before, and I am really struck by it. Just beautiful.

FWIW, if you go into the Brushes Shop on our website, de-select "In Stock" (default setting) and select Neptune (or any material excluding Ebonite, style, or size), you can see examples of every brush we've offered in that material (or style, or size) since we launched the site in early 2016.

Oh, my. The PK-47 and Falstaff are particularly great shapes to my taste anyway, and the versions in Neptune are just unbelievable. I am smitten.

In case you didn't catch them all, it looks like there are three pages of Neptune-handled brushes. Don't know how one Vesuvius snuck in there.

Not a great picture, but I used my Paladin Cleo this morning - just a nice feel with good backbone...

The Cleo is really a great handle. Is that a Harlequin?

Hi Chris - I'm not sure - here are other pictures - wonder if there's a way to identify that (I'm new to Paladin)...

That's Vintage Port. Harelquin is multi-colored. Probably the best way to learn/distinguish the different materials we use is by going to our online shop and filtering on different ones of interest.
