    That is very nice.


    I wonder if there's a reason that we don't really see many wood brushes with lots of small carved nooks and crannies in them. The design certainly looks impressive...

    That's a good question. I can't say I have a definitive answer for you. I can say that the question I get from other wood turners more than anything else is "How did you do that?"

    I've soaked and used some of these handles in testing and I can't see any material issues why you would not want nooks or crannies. They are not that deep that stuff gets in and can't get out. They are a little more difficult to seal and finish though I've found - not insurmountable by any means - just have to take care when doing so to get down in there :)

    I'd buy one in the price range you mentioned. It might take a couple of months, but I think that's quite reasonable.

    I'm pretty sure I would buy one in the range you're suggesting, if only because I suspect the price might go up down the road, and I would feel even better about my acquisition (at least from a justification perspective). Plus, I like the idea of being an early adopter. So where do I place my order?

    For a handmade product, I'd say that your price range should enable even more of us.

    The goal is for each person to find what serves them best in the art of shaving.

    Thank you all very much for your very kind words - it's really making me feel pretty good and eager to spread some of these things around.

    I will be sure to post in advance of listing these anywhere here for you guys. I'm experimenting with a few different finishes to vary the look and feel and when I have a few to send out the door I'll let you know.

    On a related note, I shaved with this baby for the first time today. The 22mm short loft knot is absolutely perfect for me. Any of you looking for a decent smaller size knot should check them out. Just fantastic!

    Cheers all - thanks again
