Here are mine:
What is yours ?
That's just not right! You said preferred "handle", singular! So which ONE is it?
Sweet looking brushes, by the way.
I like Persian Jar shaped handles myself.
I like the persian jar as well. I'm pretty fond of the basic Semogue handle too, whatever it is called.
Persian jar also or the my rubberset above that I restored it felt right first time I tried it
Claus is all inclusive in his preference!
I call the Semogue brushes the salt shaker handles.
My current favourite is my Owners Club, very comfortable to whip up lather.
I wish i could find my grandfathers brush. It was like a cream colored plastic with a clear acrylic "gem" looking handle...
I actually have to retract mine for the time being, I have a new brush en route which may very well take the number one spot for comfort. The SOC is hard to beat for comfort though. I have a hollow handled Plisson en route and may be picking up a T&H (Rooney) silvertip at the end of the month should I find the horn one I'm looking for, which should easily outweigh the lack of comfort for my CH1 handle. It's not necessarily too small for my hands but is definitely a little more unbalanced than I expected, which is a shame considering the brush price.
I have one that is long, slender & curved (made by our own Stonyloam.) It fits my hand & looks great.
This is my favorite style, it's homemade with a 23mm Shavemac knot.
The one on the left may be turning into my favorite knot of all time. It's a Muhle synthetic, 23mm.
