Hello Dipesh, thank you for your kind words. I have to agree. The fit & finish of these two brushes are top notch, as always.

Nice brushes. Other than the color, that Carnane handle looks like a cross between a Chubby and a Special.

Hello John,thank you for your kind words. The colour on the "Carnane" is the same rod used on the GYLE M7, Light & Dark Tortoiseshell, and as for handle shape I think your right it is a hybrid. Very ergonomic to hold & use.

And the simfix seems to have quite a bit of heft to it as well. Thanks for the measurements/info - I was curious about the Simfix handles.
I've also been longing for a milk churn for some time now.

Congrats on the additions!

Beautiful Brushes - BB !!

I had to decide between the SimFix Carnane and the SimFix Snaefeell and in the end chose the Sneafell, because I felt it would be abit better for face lathering.

The 2-Band knot on yours looks as good and solid as it does on mine Biggrin

It's a pleasure, as for the handle on the "Carnane" it is as you say quite a chunk of rod they used. But very comfortable in the hand, and the Milk Churn the best hair used is of a very high quality.

Hello Claus, thank you for your kind words. I looked at the Sneafell and It came down to Knot Size, but I do like the Sneafel handle design. Should I go for it or not Erm Erm.

As I said not used these yet or cleaned them. I may just keep them as part of my unused collection "some day" maybe.

The handle on the Simfix "Carnane" is very ergonimic & fells good in the hand, I think it is an Hybrid of Chubby & !!!!
