    I'm going to build myself another brush. I just ordered another Shavemac knot, a 25mm DO1 silver tip flat top. The flat top isn't new to me but it is in the configuration I ordered. I have used the DO1 2 band in a flat top and a DO1 in a 3 band fan. Should be an interesting build. Thinking of a transparent cobalt blue and white handle.

    The transparent cobalt blue and white handle sounds like a winner.

    Looking forward to seeing your brush. My favorite knots are the Fan and the Flattop.

    I buy the knots and make my own handles, set the loft, etc.

    Ah, much better! :happy088: I thought you were just picking out the knot and handle and having the completed brush mailed to you.

    Sounds like it'll make a great brush. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

    Are you still doing custom handles these days? I have a couple of knots in need of handles, but I've been biding my time and trying to decide what I really wanted and who I wanted to buy from. I've always loved your two-tone brushes that include the clear colored acrylics

    Thanks, no, not at this time. I'm supposed to retire soon (March) and at that time I'll start making brushes again. I do have one work project that I'd like to see through so it's likely it'll be a little later than March unless things fall into place. I have one of those jobs that if I'm in town it's 24/7/365 so it's almost impossible to schedule any free time.

    I'll keep an eye out, then. Hope your project goes well and you're able to retire sooner, rather than later.

    Me too. 37 years of dealing with the public, contractors, engineers and politicians make my next job (a hermit) look pretty appealing.
