Paste and Cut (Australian forum) LE brush - 25 made - Feb 2017 purchase. Bob Quinn 24mm Bulb knot (forgot loft). Very soft - two occasions I stopped to check if using a synthetic or badger brush. A favorite brush but my brush acquisition disorder is not well controlled $120 USD including Intl Shipping (from across the pond). My cost at today's exchange rate would be $148 with shipping.
