Thanks to all for arranging this, my brush arrived a couple of days ago, and it's pretty nice! The knot reminds me of silksmoke.
Yeah I can see the resemblance. I think Arctic Fox is more of a fan than a bulb though - slightly different shape. Let’s see those SOTD pics!!!!

And it's in hand!



Delighted! The handle is well finished, flawless. The bamboo container is superb. The handle is instantly a favourite! The knot is fantastic and that is without using it. With a low loft, it has the punch of the Simpsons Chubby Synth, without the pointy, prickly feeling. At a higher loft it splays more easily yet still retains tremendous backbone. I'll have a play with loft, before setting...
Thanks all, well worth the wait...

How much depth do you have to play with, Lee? Mine was filled with a little more epoxy than I had asked for...

I haven't really looked TBH. There is enough to go from one extreme to other with the knot.
I'll check and report back:okay:

Had a look again, but not measured. My "eye" says I have about 12mm to the top of the resin. It doesn't sound much, but I'm confident I have enough to get he loft I need.

The synth knots don't need setting in very much at all that's why there is only about 15mm max. depth.

How do you like the razor handle?
I really like it. I know I criticised the "symmetry" earlier in the thread, but it really works. It is my kind of handle. For me perfect length, weight, width and I love the design. The knurling is spot on. It is very similar to my favourite, that my Dad made me before retiring:

I noticed you have a Beehive handle there... watch out for my interpretation - The Beehole. It is a crossover between a beehive and a keyhole.
