Hello  friends,

I'd firstly like to wish you all a Happy and healthy 2021!
Over the festive period I bought a 24mm  shaving brush knot and now I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a nice handle to set it in.
Bear in mind I am based in Somerset in the UK. 

I tend to like longer handles 60-70mm though that's not a deal breaker.

Any advice or recommendations greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Bob

For barbershop handles I recommend Vlad Ferdman in Hadley, Massachusetts. He has done over 15 for me. He is fast, reliable, and does custom work. He has an etsy page/site called 'love your shave.' he does wood handles as well as acrylic. Strong recommendation. Very affordable

Totally unrelated, but as I opened your thread, my wife and I are watching an episode of "Escape To The Country" on the Roku, and this episode is set in Somerset, UK.  

Sorry lads.  Carry on.

A vintage Rubberset 400 is a nice long aluminum handle. They look great with patina (pictured) or mirrored shine, either is easily done Smile
They go upwards of $100, but can be landed $25-50 in great shape. The top collar unscrews, and there are new repro collars available so you can quickly switch knots.
I believe you can find these with no mark or a 3 or 4 stamped in the collar...rumor is it depicts the loft, and you'd have a full set...Working on it Smile Good luck!
