Was on the Paladin site yesterday and I noticed that they had five brushes and all of them had starting bid listed as the pricing.  Is this the way they've decided to go in their sales department? Hope not.

The auction on the five brushes ended May 30. If you go to the Auction part of the website and click on the "BID Here" button it will show the winning bid amount.
THAT should help answer your question ....

I don't know enough about Paladin brushes or their auctions to understand how valuation works for any particular brush.  I used to go to pen auctions in Chicago looking for fountain pens... I bid 15k on a pen's cap just to do it... a cap that I knew was going to sell north of 30k, I was just having some fun but was it thrilling just the same.  I wouldn't mind acquiring a Paladin brush - I hear nothing but good things and they have beautiful stuff, though I probably wouldn't participate in an auction, not until I could learn more about all their brushes and history.

They are still doing brush drops (last one was May 14), and announce them on their Twitter feed and other social media sites.

Ken usually announces the brush drops here at TSN as well, if you aren't a Twit

Thanks for the quick reply folks.  I have 4 of their brushes and will look Ken’s next release.

As Norm Crosby used to say, “I resemble that remark!”

It is my understanding the bid sales are brushes that are unique, not regular production. Some examples are prototypes, old Lee Sabini knots.

Well whatever they are they are beautiful brushes and the knots superb. I have 3 one being a synthetic bristle. I really doubt I'll ever get into a bidding war for any of the newer brushes at any time soon.
