May I ask where you are getting your M&F brushes?

I did not get any of the brushes new.  All have been acquired from some really nice gentlemen on this forum!  Smile

It's my newest addition.  I agree that it is a looker.  I mostly like to face lather, but wanted to have a bowl brush in the mix too.  It performs as good as it looks...a very nice knot.  Smile

I miss that tortoise rod stock. The one that most companies these days use is slightly different.

Lovely collection!  Your L7 is truly spectacular.  We've made a few Tortoiseshell/Butterscotch L7's on special order--and just sent one to Lee last week, interestingly enough.  

All the Tortoiseshell resin comes out of Italy.  The darn of it is that the manufacturer changed the pattern about a year ago...just after we used the last of the older material.  Anyway, the new pattern does exhibit some nice figure,  We just have to be careful with how we align the rod in order to show that figure to best advantage.  

But regardless, congratulations on your acquisitions!
