I made this Cholula brush from a large Cholula cap and a Maggard 22mm black synthetic knot. I made this Jayaruh #284 from bocote wood and set with a Maggard 24mm blonde synthetic knot. I have made about 4 other brushes of this style, and I really like it. I am using #144 this week. It has a finest badger knot. It inspired me to make a new one.
