I received shipment of my latest Vie-Long Special Edition brushes this afternoon. The brushes will go up on my site later in the day but I thought I would share a few pictures first.

The J.L. Petree brush is available in four choices of knot: European Two Band Badger, Silvertip Badger, Natural Brown Horse and Horse/Badger mixed knots. The Silvertip version has a 46mm loft while all other varieties have a 50mm loft. The knot diameter for all is 23mm.

Can't argue with that. A nice tall loft would be a natural!

And ... order placed. If that handle's even close to the Rover I know I'm going to love the brush -- I've used V-L's badger-horse mix before and recommend it to anyone.

Is horse brush really hard? Is it cheap because it's not rare?

No...it reminds me a bit of best badger in terms of face feel...good back bone with a hint of scritch. The supply of horse hair is more abundant because they do not kill the horse for the hair...they just give the horse a hair cut.

That's an interesting looking and attractive brush, very much like a Rover. Nice hair choices, too.

John, I know you like the Sumerset Series of brushes and I know you would like one of these, because if it's named after me, it would be from the Lazy Boy Series.Smile

Wonderful brushes! I too thought there would be a boar among them. Mr Petree, the Rover inspired handle suggests you may be a wanderer at heart, is this the case? It must be as you seem to be straying from boar! My choice would be the Silvertip. Everyone knows my preference lies with badger, I also prefer a longer loft, hence the choice (as long as there is sufficient backbone to support it). Johnny, I hope you have managed to acquire all four, if not I'm buying and sending you which ever one(s) you don't have (so long as it's badger)!

Before they are gone, I will have the 2-band and the horse. Never tried horse hair so I figure it is about time.

I am going to give the horse a try. It's about time I try a horse hair brush and I like the Rover handle.
