    Thanks very much Rudy! Absolutely thrilled with my very own RV Custom. The pictures don't do it justice, it is even more stunning in person!
    Wow that brush looks amazing! I think the logo looks great too.

    Can we send our Brushes back to get the logo on them?

    I see the term 'stabilized' in some of the brush descriptions. What does that mean when talking about a brush?

    "Wood Stabilization is pressure impregnation process with a heat curable polymer resin, and has many potential benefits:

    # Brings out the beauty of the wood by adding contrast to the grain and figuring.
    # Reduce end grain tear out
    # Hardens soft or spalted woods
    # Significantly reduces effects of humidity changes
    # Reduces finishing time (varies with species)
    # Greatly improved dimensional stability for burls and highly figured woods
    # Please note that stabilizing will not repair cracks and holes"

    No worries, I had a good idea, but to be honest I was curious too.

    It think we have all fallen pray to that a time or too. I would love a "glass jar" I just dont know what knot to have put in it.

    We are working on a solution to hold the finished brush while engraving. The handles are just set on their top, but the hair would not allow this, even stiff boar hair...
    As soon as we have a way, I let you guys know.

    Thanks for posting this explanation, I am a bit limited right now with internet access as I am out of the country on business (in my real job...)

    Anytime, its the least I could do after you have fed me invaluable info on multiple occasions.

    Here is my second Kent BK4 "surgery". Bradley sent me the Kent brush and I performed the same operation I did before on another Kent BK4: removal of the knot and then installing it at a decent ( say "usable") loft so the brush can be used for face lathering. The loft of the "new" Kent/RV BK4 is 48 mm.
    The new handle is made from a piece of exceptional gorgeous piece of natural gold colored stabilized Boxelder Burl in the Tulip shape.

    Rudy: Thanks for doing such a beautiful job improving my BK4! I liked the brush before, but know that I will love the Kent/RV. Lucky me. Regards, Bradley
