Wow! Makes me want the Monarch more than the Prince now! Can you give more personal description on how it feels/backbone/all that stuff?

If not review, at least tell us which one you like the most. I will guess it to be Monarch Silvertip Wink

I'm just messing with you. Although it does sound kind of biased.

Here are my thoughts:
Not a shedder at all. Only lost 2 hairs. Not stinky either. I didn't have to hold my nose while shaving. Must have lucked out. Guess my badger didn't dig through trash cans.

Backbone was impressive for a 54mm actual loft. Very little splay. Bloomed incredibly well. Perfect bloom. IMO. But you guys can fact check me with the pictures.

Okay, on to the softness. Extra soft tips with a hint of scritch in the background. It was pretty luxurious.

All in all, it exceeded my expectations. Which were already high.

Hopefully this isn't a one off order. I'll have to see about securing more hair from the badger pelt dealer. Because this stuff truly exceeded my expectations.

Favorite hair so far... I haven't tried the Super Badger 2-Band, so, so far the Monarch in Super Silvertip. Cool

The old Stubby handle still has a place in my heart of course.

Two new posts on the website. Both stemming from the arrival of more products.

First, a preview of the new knots that will be available along with diameters.

I'll probably get some knots in the near future. Still need to go through some preliminary testing and public trials.

Loving the look of the M7 handle Lee. It looks amazing. Smile

I'm presuming that it is made out of a somewhat expensive wood?

Thanks! Bob Quinn turned it for me.

Not only can you buy the same handle, but Bob will have the same knots I've been modelling. Minus the Manchurian knot.

I'll try and some premium silvertip knots in soon.

Also, changed the one hair name to correctly reflect the grade of hair.

Wow, it looks like people are really getting a deal on the Monarch 3-band. Just the knot alone is the same price. Pick up your Monarch now, heck the handle is FREE!

Yes, the handle is basically free. I'm honoring the quoted price I gave for this batch. Will need to review the pricing if/when I secure future supplies.

These knots are the last of the High Mountain White hair I was able to source for a good price. So, they're closer to the industry standardized price.

Sadly these will be all for the near future.

Oh man, I'm going to need to save up a little to get one of those knots, not what I was expecting, though it makes perfect sense for the quality of hair.
