It seems that everyone likes Jefferson handles, but what about the other Declaration handle styles?  Can anybody who has used the different styles comment on the differences and usability amongst them?  Thanks!

They're all great.  I don’t prefer the Washington only because the knot is only 24mm.  However, Jefferson is the only style he’s doing at the moment.  Buy with confidence!

Where's all the input from the Declaration fans? Don't everyone reply all at once!

I ordered a Darkfall brush (Jefferson handle) today and it is my first DG handle. So, I can give feedback in a couple weeks, but cannot contrast to Scott's other handle styles.

Congrats! That was a very nice looking handle.

I like Washingtons and Jeffos mainly. The Theo is OK, but it’s a little too short IMO. I’ve never tried a franklin. The shape can vary from brush to brush.

I agree with everything said here. I prefer 28 mm brushes so I prefer the Jefferson. But the Washington is nice too, but only smaller. I also prefer there not to be a lip at top of the handle around the knot hole, so again prefer the Jefferson. It feels great in the hand. I haven't seen Theos or Franklins in a long time and as mentioned Jeffersons are the only shape offered lately. Mozingo makes great handles and can make some of the shapes not currently available or change the size of the handle if you really like the shape but want it proportioned for a different size knot.

I haven’t tried any of the other styles from Declaration except the Jefferson but I find it very comfortable. None of the other styles were ever available when I had the chance but I’d like to try them at some point.

My own personal tastes prefer smooth handle shapes like the Jefferson ("8" shaped). I actually prefer brush handles with wider bases than necks, and no sharp angles, so the Franklin/Washington/Theodore don't appeal to me at all because of the relatively narrow bases and harsh lines.
I also prefer the Jefferson because of the knot size. 26-28mm is my sweet spot.
