These newest handle colors are incredible.

For my Stirling/Maggard brush Mike widened the hole in the handle to 26mm and put two pennies in the bottom of the hole to raise the loft of the knot.  I honestly think he did an incredible job.  Also, ezlovan, that ergonomic handle feels like it was made for my hand.  I think you have a real winner there and the price of the brush is worth it for the handle alone.

How is that fan synthetic knot? Did you acquire that from Nathan Clarke?

The fan knot, indeed the entire brush, came from EverShave (on Etsy).  He does sell the knot separately (https://www.etsy.com/listing/519542900/2..._active_16) and his prices are very reasonable.  I notice he will be changing the name of his Etsy shop sometime this month.

I think the knot is fantastic.  Very soft with a fair bit of splay.

I had two orders show up today. The scents on all of them are fantastic. I think the Armada Blossom goes good with my MDC Agrumes. The SV is one of my favorite brands and I needed this scent. This is my first try of The Holy Black, it's Gunpowder Spice scent, but I love it. I hope it's performance matches the scent.
