    As I have mentioned in previous posts, I only acquire SE/LE brushes. I started participating in ATG a while back. It is a UK (I believe) forum that gives me a good perspective of another shaving community. I was able to acquire one of their 2017 LE brushes. A gentleman named Bernd at Shavemac furnished the knots and handles. The handle is stunning...a work of art. I am fortunate to acquire this brush.

    Jar, if you don't mind what are the specs on your knot, loft and diameter.

    I really have no idea. That's something I don't pay much attention to at all. But I'll look and see if I kept a record of what I ordered or try to measure them.

    Here is the information I found on the order:

    ATG-11-2017

    Handle Shape:Shape 2
    Color:Lime Green
    ATG-Type-Size-Shape:Silvertip-D01-26-FLAT-48

    Hope that helps.

    Great looking ATG 2017 LE brushes guys. I participated in the 2016 ATG LE group buy and am very pleased with my Shavemac.

    Yes. The Shavemac knots are wonderful. I have one other Shavemac that is in a 2014 B&B Rudy Vey LE. It is a bulb knot. I am fortunate to have acquired this brush since only 50 were produced. Both are good with cream/hard/soft soaps.

    I agree Ed. I have 3 brushes made by or with Shavemac knots. I have a Rudy Vey with a Shavemac Finest knot, a Shavemac Silvertip D01 three band and a ATG LE "Rowl" Do1 2 band Flat Top. All three are excellent brushes.

    I have one of these flat tops knots on order (D01 Silver Tip). I plan on lofting mine lower.

    Please send before, during, and after pictures. Very interested in how you mount the knot.

    Thanks much...................
