After admiring David's @david of central florida and Paul"s @Tdmsu SOTD phots featuring their Brother's Bristle Brushes, I reached out to David asking where he got his brush. David pointed me toward Paul. After exchanging several messages with Paul, I went forward with getting 2 brush handles. One is for me and one will be a gift to a good friend. Paul sent a photo before shipping the handles out. I received the brush handles and was amazed at the heft and feel of the handles. The workmanship was first rate. Since I really love polished metal handles, I took the time to polish my handle up. Now to decide on the knot to use. I thought about the usual suspects from TGN and Whipped Dog. I already have a Whipped Dog High Mountain brush that I really enjoy using. Since I have never been in love with the Whipped Dog handle I decided to take some measurements confirming that this knot would work. I decided to sacrifice the WD handle and salvage the knot. Turned out to be more work than I thought but it worked out in the end. I think the finished product turned out great. The knot specs in the finished handle are 24mm with a 52 mm loft. I'm looking forward to using this brush.
