Both these brushes are gorgeous and follow the same inspiration.

Are there any subtle differences that make one better than the other?

Looking mainly for opinions from those who have or have used both.

Aaaah, Naples. I have watched My Brilliant Friend and really enjoyed the scenic beauty
of that area.

As to the brushes, I have learned that Alpha is two-piece (so you can change or rotate different
brush heads and hair varieties)....while BSB1 is one piece. Both seem well made but the flexibility
of Alpha is nice.

I think BSB1 is not anodised so may need to be polished over time to retain its shine. Alpha it seems
is anodised aluminum.

Both pieces have a nice retro feel to them although I won't be purchasing just yet.
Maybe when my current brushes are worn out.

I bought the Alpha from Steve with two ferrules. I've put a Declaration B6 in one, and a Declaration B8 in the other. Tremendous brush handle, and tremendous knots. I haven't tried the other, but the Alpha just works, and is beautiful.
