Thanks, Phil. Cody's wife Courtney created the Vesuvius drawing. I think she knocked it out of the park.

Thanks! It was Cody's concept, and he executed the engraving. He and Courtney were a great team on this project.

Beautiful. Both of these. So any Vesuvius handle will now come engraved with that drawing? It does look really good!

Thanks, but probably not. The Vesuvius "structure" produces a highly variable pattern. We often don't engrave the backside. The pieces we use for this release were especially well suited for the engraving.

Thanks. I think we've settled on "Phantasia" as its name.

FWIW, there will be 10-12 x 28 mm PKs in each of the two materials and 4-6 x 28 mm ElDos. Also a few 26 mm Chiefs, but they all have standard backside engravings. 

We're going to do this release a little differently. There will be a dedicated page for the 28 mm Vesuvius brushes and another for the 28 mm Phantasia brushes. Photos of each brush will be included on its respective page, which will allow selection and purchase of a brush without navigating a drop-down menu for multiple instances of a particular variant (i.e., style, size, material combination). It will still be a race to payment for each brush. 

Cody will probably release the 28 mm Vesuvius brushes an hour or two earlier than the 28 mm Phantasias. We haven't decided how to drop the Chiefs yet. He's processing the photos now. When that's done and he has the pages built, I'll put up an announcement with all the details on our website and post links in all the usual places. We're aiming for this Saturday. Times aren't quite settled yet.
