Just in time for Veterans Day, I received my custom made Cambria Varlet. The brush is a 25 mm dia with a 50 mm base and a 52 mm handle. The handle is white with a pinkish cast. Aldo added some gold to the mix. The handle has a rose-colored hue. The hue is subtle and hard to photograph. So I made 4 different photos to try and capture the beauty of the new handle. It was difficult to quite capture and of course, the pictures do not do it justice. The handle is very comfortable and the brush although tall is well balanced. I look forward to shaving with this beauty this week.

I'd be interested in hearing where you hold it after you have used it a good handful of times. The profile line is interesting but also looks ergonomic. Alpine grade was a good sorted knot when I got one so enjoy your new brush BarryLu.

Aldo has really come up with a beautiful, elegant handle design. No doubt the knot will be spectacular.

The second shave and the brush has bloomed beautifully.[Image: AI4fLS6.jpg][Image: aUqGQMQ.jpg]

The brush lathers easily. Gives up it's lather willingly and has the softest tips with a nice backbone. The result is a cushioned comfortable shave. The best hand hold for me is the button at the bottom of the brush in the palm of my hand and my fingers surrounding the button.
