Hello, thought I would introduce myself, since I will try and hang around and learn. My name is Tony, better know as Penchetta in the pen making world. I manufacture fine writing instruments. Been doing this professionally for the past 5 years. I own a B&M studio and gallery in Carefree, AZ. So I started turning shaving brush handles about 2 years ago and just now started to activly seek out information on shaving and what most consumers like in a fine shaving brush and how to use it properly and all the other good things that go with it.
