    Very nice Steve! It's been fun watching you go from prototype to production. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

    Hi I decided only anodised and polished for now - I also "invented" a ferrule that uses the same handle but takes a 26mm knot - chubby enough for you? Do you think Cerakote would be an option that folks might like?

    The handle weighs in at about 100g or 4oz. - Is that heavy enough for you?

    Indeed. What glue do you prefer when setting a knot?

    A teeny-weeny bit bigger - not noticeable unless side by side.

    How do secure the ferrule to the handle?

    Screw down finger tight.

    A standard ferrule in 24mm with an option to go to one up to 26mm sounds great.

    Cerakote -- I have it on a set of previously-grungy Gillette adjustables and it both spruced them up wonderfully and also made the mechanisms smoother. It would be a way to get a choice of colours into the mix and the finish itself is certainly durable enough. I would prefer plain polished metal myself, but I could see Cerakote being popular.

    It is threaded so just screw it on or off.

    Collective noun for a bunch of shaving brushes anyone? How about a bristling of brushes? Or a lathering of brushes?

    Here is a bristling of 24mm silver tips. Looking sharp or what?

    It spells out the word "Alpha" but in Greek.

    Like the dog pound. This is the brush pound. LOL

    By the way, what knots did you put in those handles? They look mouth wateringly delicious.
