#24 found its way to the door today. (Shavemac)
Looks great, cant wait to use it. Also, have wanted to try the Arco stick. Smells like a soap I will enjoy
Thanks Rudy for the craftmanship and wonderful looking brush.
#12/100 Safe and Sound, and ready to go for the morning. What a great feel in the hand. I wasn't so sure of the shape when I first saw it a few months ago, but I couldn't be happier. Great craftsmanship, and thanks, Rudy, for the little extra.

19/100 in hand and it looks truly lovely. I will give it a go tomorrow. Thanks to Rudy for the excellent service, the brush has just the right feel in hand. Extremely well done!

08/100 was used this morning. For the occasion, I paired it with Mike's Natural Soaps Orange/Cedarwood/Black Pepper.
The brush has great backbone & feels soft on the face. It reminds me of my Simpsons PJ1 but better. Denser. And the lather flow-through was 1st rate. It lost 4 hairs but hopefully that'll be it for awhile.
Great job, Rudy!

A few shots of #7 before it goes through the paces.
#15 arrived safe and sound, along with a funny-smelling red cylinder with foil on the ends ...thanks, Rudy. Brush feels solid in the hand and looks fantastic. If whoever gets #41 also ordered the Shavemac and would like to trade, I'm up for it. Mine's going to have to wait for June 1 to get used thanks to Minimalist May, anyhow.
Just beautiful work.
#69 made it here safe. I can't wait to give this a try later on or tomorrow morning. You did a great job Rudy, it looks fantastic.
Used the # 24 this am. Face lathered with Proraso soap. This brush performed with soft soap like a champ. Loaded very quickly, tons of lather for 3 passes. Going to use it with MWF tomorrow. Has plenty of backbone, so should load up well with the Fat. Has a little scritchiness with face lathering, but I like this in a brush with soaps. So far very pleased.

I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.

Face lathered QED. Lost 9 hairs, no biggie. Flow through is crazy for the first run. I'm liking D01 hair and what I originally thought was a humdrum handle is quite comfy and nice!
Hmm... wondering if I was the first to use the new RV.
Mine arrived yesterday and I shave before bed.

There is nothing like a Jinhou.
#57 arrived today, safe and sound and beautiful! The Arko is a nice bonus.

#55 arrived today. The handle fits well in my big hands and the brush whipped up a lather with MWF with ease.
The stick of Arko was a nice surprise.
Thanks for all your hard work Rudy and to everybody else who made this group buy possible!
#36 (D01) arrived today. Wow! Nice work Mr. Vey! The knot has the backbone and density and presumed scritchiness I crave. Handle-wise, I love it. Initiation in the morning. Move over Chubby 2 2-band.
