I own a ton of high end brushes including my favorite, Declaration Grooming. I have a B3, 2 B5’s and a B6. One of them is an actual Drclaration brush and the others are their knots in other high end brush handles. I came across Grizzly Bay on Instagram and bought 2 beautiful brushes and decided to try his “Fanchurian” 26mm knots in both handles. This may be blasphemous to some of you Declaration fans but these knots are as good as my B5’s, better than my B3 and just a hair under my B6. I own a ton of Elite Razor knots in various Elite brushes and knots in other brushes as well as Paladin, Saponificio Varesino and many others. These Grizzly Bay brushes are absolutely beautiful, extremely well made with damn near perfect ergonomics for comfort holding and the knots that are In these compete with the highest level brushes that I have and that is saying a lot considering my collection. Here are a couple pics of the 2 that I just got and I did order 2 more from his drop today. “If you don’t know, now you know!!!!” -Biggie Smalls[Image: acc532e61abeda7ef04dad704dc214f4.jpg][Image: 719c8492f29071ba7350d8570be30546.jpg][Image: 92ed177c073ef3c1770a246e2a3b8406.jpg][Image: feadccbdc79f601c0ba8689f5681a8a1.jpg][Image: 8e0c9e7d2d74cb51d221db906424da5a.jpg][Image: 325700afc47dc7f6e123eb3ef9f76446.jpg]

I picked another one up yesterday also.  I already have a couple of his handles which are great.  I sent one of the handles to Rob of That Darn Rob to have a "Fanchurian" knot put in to it.  It's a very good knot, but the loft is a little high for me.  We'll see how my new handle and fanchurian work out once I get it.  I asked John to set the knot around 48.  I'm looking forward to this one.  I love the colors and the fluting.

Might have to try one of these. The handles are a unusual design but they look like they are comfortable to use.

Update, I now have about 10 of these handles and I just started putting Maggard Razors SHD knots in them. Those knots are at the top of my list now. Absolutely amazing!!

I picked up my first Grizzly Bay brush last week, very nice piece, I'm pleased with it. I decided to go with their Fanchurian V3 knot.[Image: 1070b050ee0b53469ecd451841bf9b01.jpg][Image: 70f1c63838f090dc0bdac002f981399c.jpg]
