    Because @TheFiveO was kind enough to hone two of my straight razors at no cost, I decided to make him a shave brush. He will be retiring from the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department soon and so I decided to use that for the theme. First pic of the wood I used........

    Second pic of the handle after doing the rough shape with my Wen rotary tool........

    After final shaping by hand, primed and hole made for the 21mm synthetic knot........

    After painting the colors used for the uniforms, tan and green, that I had to mix from looking at pics on the internet along with the decals I made. Badge and shoulder patch, with spares, just in case........

    Final two pics showing two sides of the brush with the knot installed........
