Dear Mr O'Paladin:

I was hoping for Shamrock Green (Sherlock, PK-47, or Tut) for your St. Patricks Day release  !!  I do not consider Lime or Jade as true Irish Green.  At a minimum, you should have renamed the Tortoise (on the Moe handles) as "Bailey's or "Jameson".  A few could have been renamed "Guinness" for the big event.   I would have reached for my credit card again.   

Otherwise, nice selection of brushes

Nice looking brushes.  shame nothing smaller than 26mm.    some of us don't care for large knots but prefer 24mm and smaller.  are there plans to have some smaller knots in the future?

Thanks.
So far, we've offered 13 different handle styles in four different sizes (not every style is made in every size) and 27 different materials, excluding Ebonite (not every style/size combination is made in every material).


Since launching our website in March 2016, we've made and sold brushes in 340 different variants (style/size/material combinations). 
Last year we made about 1,000 brushes. That's less than three, on average, of each variant. 
We produce handles in small batches. I just started turning 26 mm Tuts and Sherlocks. The last time I made any of those was about a year ago. 
We make some 24 mm handles, but not as many as 26s and 28s because there isn't as much demand, and to be honest, I don't enjoy making them as much.
FWIW, we state sizes based on socket diameter (24 mm, 26 mm, 28 mm, and 30 mm).
26 mm handles are matched with 24-25 mm knots (as sized by their base diameters).  In other words, our 26 mm brushes don't have 26 mm knots.

We will. We just don't have many right now.

Thanks.
