I finished my first brush last night. Had a great woodworking experience with help from a talented lathe artist. I used Koa wood and a 28mm silvertip knot. Inlaid into the bottom of the handle is a ring of brass shavings.
This thing is pretty simple, hand carved and I love it. Replaces my grandpa's old "century pure badger" brush which I've been using for the last 15 years.
