I have three customs from Bernd. My first one was about two or three years ago and I can't really remember the specs of the brush. I want to say it's 21/23mm knot and 52/53mm loft, but that's just a guess/estimate. I just purchased another two a few weeks ago, one is D01 Extra Silver Tip and the other is D01 2-Band. Both of them have the same specs 25mm/50mm. I haven't used either of the new brushes yet, I'll finish with Semogue-tember then it's straight into Shavemac.


First custom:

D01 Extra Silver Tip - 21/23mm knot? - 52/53mm loft?

   

   



This is the shaving brush 90 handle, I just had it customized to my liking.

D01 Extra Silver Tip - 25mm knot - 50mm loft

   




D01 2-Band - 25mm knot - 50mm loft

   


Let's see those Shavemacs!!

I own 5... 3 regular silvertips and 2 D01 3 band. One is a RV custom. All are great brushes that I use regularly. I grab the D01 less often as I prefer the softer face feel and better flow through of the regular silvertips ...
They are fantastic for face and bowl lathering and go with soaps and creams alike...

I promise, you won't be able to stop. They are all so unique and feel different. I have another custom D01 coming soon from Rudy. To me, the D01 are currently the best 3-band knots.

Very nice brushes guys! I plan on getting two more very soon, one more 2-band and one more D01 silver tip. I'm thinking about a bigger knot size but not sure if I'll like it.
