I received a beautiful brush handle in the mail a few days ago. It turns out someone on The Shave Den put in a special order. Who ever you are thank you very much. The handle is beautiful. A great design and it has good weight to it. I ordered a few knots which I will install as soon as the silicone arrives. The picture doesn't do justice to the color of the handle. All of these knots came from AP Shave Co. I also got my advanced copy of a book I have a chapter in.
