The pics of that storm on Monday are incredible!

Lots of anticipatory hyperventilating going on over here re: this *stunning* brush!

Those knots look insanely luxurious!!  I *pray* I get the opportunity to purchase one of these masterpiece works of useful art! (i.e.: I hope the release isn't while I'm on vacation the next two weeks).

If I toss everything I know about Japanese culture out the window and soak in the gaijin samurai brush I can love it, I'm getting more of a Chinese vibe...I'd picture myself as John Wayne shaving with one though...


Anymore shots of the graphite handles? Also on the scale of gel tips between 1 and MF blonde badger, where are we here with the knot?

Still haven't found anything to rival the first run of these guys...circa 9 years ago...oh and hi, its been awhile..

Which M&F Blonde Badger knot?

I have a pair of 2-band horns like that. One of them was/is a horrible shedder (center hollowed out). That was a frequently reported experience with those brushes.

I've had over 400 (I think closer to 450) M&F Blonde Badger knots pass through my hands. They were not characterized by consistency in any respect. Blonde Badger  is a trade name, not a type of hair.

Thanks for the response.

I would have to dig in the old emails from Lee Sabini, but it was what he considered 2 band at the time, 27ishmm knot x 50mm loft, its shed probably 2 hairs in its life, I know mine they went crazy with the glue as you can see.

Which handle colour are you guys gravitating to?

The orange one (Krakatoa) speaks to me.

The brushes are up on the site but currently show as being out of stock. Do not panic! They simply have not yet been made available (assuming that you are reading this prior to May 20th). Mark your calendar!

They all look great.  I'm gravitating towards Somerset, and Honey Noire, and Krakatoa.  Somerset is my favorite from the pictures.
