    I've posted a rather unrefined picture of the brush over on The Shave Nook in the "Let's see your shavemac collection" thread; my username there is Rufus.

    Not sure if I understand you correctly here, but if you mean photos stored on and taken with an iPad, it's easy as chips: Click the middle button just below the editor field, "upload file". On my iPhone I am then asked to choose file (click) and again asked if I want to take a photo now, use an existing one, or upload file from other sources (including Google drive, Dropbox).

    It's a shame it's not working out for you. It's a beautiful brush. Though I can see why you would prefer the Falstaff shape. If I had to choose between the two handles, I'd pick Falstaff no question. I have big clunky hands and I reall enjoy my Chubby style handle with a fan knot. I am really amazed every time I use it with the beautiful lather it creates. I guess now as far as the group buy goes, there was only two of us with the chubby style, I'm a man out on my own island :) cheers!

    Still waiting to see the purple handled brush, which looked fantastic in the front photos. It could be Gordy's brush.

    Would seem so, wouldn't it?

    Here's mine. The nicest knot in my collection by a mile, thanks Nishy!

    I just had my first shave with the 400 today with Trumper's GFT cream. The colours of the handle come out beautifully under light with flecks of granite and dark purple offset against the black, the handle is unbelievably ergonomic for bowl lathering and the knot is sublime with soft tips and perfect backbone.

    Can hardly wait for the next group buy.

    6 Shaves and 10 hand palm lather

    Brush is beginning to break.

    More scritch is missing but there is some still noticeable

    If you see the second photo, you may see enough black hairs in the knot, may be they get soft or may be I need remove them, but I'm going to wait some uses more

    In first or second wash it lost two hairs, then anymore lost

    A very good backbone but also has a very good flow. It has a nice scrub feeling

    You can make a lot of lather with it

    Standard Silvertip 2B Fan 26 x 50 and Wickham 1912 Cashmere

    Can definitely see some black hairs in that knot Quique. I thought I preferred the last unique with gel tips, I then went back to it last night and I wasn't sure. It is really difficult when you like both the latest unique for its scrub and the previous for its lush gel tips. I think for the next group buy we could try and offer both options.
    The flat extreme is also a knot I advise everyone to try, make sure it is without scratch or scritch. Superb on the face with a well controlled splay.

    I was contemplating doing a Christmas Snowman brush (pearl coloration only) but I think these current brushes still have a lot more to give. The unique type are very stubborn when it comes to fully blooming. Which personally I like.

    Finally as some may know Bernd had a little accident. He is now fully recovered so if you are reading this Bernd, wish you well and the fact that you were continuing making brushes one armed is a testament to your success.
