On an earlier thread, I showed what Oscar11 (Steve) had sent me.

http://shavenook.com/thread-the-generosity-of-steve

Here is the first brush from that set.

Now here is the second handle.

Since it has such an interesting pattern, I decided to show both sides.

Acrylic with a 26 mm TGN Super Badger with the loft set at 50 mm.

After a 24 to 36 hour cure time, the break in will begin.

Here is the first shot with some cleaning of the knot and the beginning of the break in process.

How is that loft working out for you? The knot looks great.

Thanks for reminding me to go on round one of the break in.

I will be using this later in the week.

After one lather up on both forearms to start the process, I decided to clean up the brush and re-lather for photos.

This thing is already a beast and is almost as tall as the H.I.S. but with a much larger bloom.

This, to my way of thinking, is the ideal shaving brush handle. I like a long handle that gives me a number of options to hold the brush and won't dip to deeply into my scuttle.

Really nice.

I absolutely love the acrylic material that he uses! The irridescense that comes from within is just gorgeous!

I agree, Brian, and I'm starting to come around on the longer handle shapes after years of Duke-Chubby style devotion.
