    I am a sucker for a green shaving brush. Today, I made me a new one. I got this very nice fan shaped two-band badger from Maggards, and I made this handle for it. I tried a new shape right out of my head.

    J, great brush. I seen a pic of a similar brush you made but in what I would call "barbershop" style and thought it was an excellent looking brush too. Great job.

    Awesome brush. That knot is beautiful. Will be fun seeing how it looks after a few uses.

    Love the color scheme with the green and black. Handle dimensions, may I ask? You have a keen eye for proportions.
