    Just received a photo of the finished brush... The Archduke 26/50 2-Band Manchurian in Tortoiseshell resin... I can't wait to start a lather fest with this beauty...

    Sweet looking brush! I see he has changed the logo. Or indeed started to have one printed on the brush.

    Both @Mr_Smartepants and I have brushes from Brad. Great guy and great brushes. Mine is the previous Manch three-band - with no logo printed on.

    Should we perhaps make this into a Brad Sears appreciation thread, @Str8_Shaver with your blessing?

    IMG_1158.JPG Here's an early photo of mine, just after I had received it, still wet after the first lather. G3 I believe it is called, set with a 26/51 Manchurian 3-band knot.

    I've always fancied one of these! Lovely brush.

    I guess this maker doesn't have the same issues in exporting badger that some have???
