    Man am I off the bench and not even in the locker room.
    Mike that is going to be SWEET if you pull it out. Love those scales. I'm sure you will. Believe in you buddy.
    Shaun, you are the MAN. That's bone I guess? Carving really impresses me. What's going in those?
    Aaron that's a really nice package. Nice to see a project ready for the stones.
    Gotta get my arse in gear.

    The scales are for someone else. Generally I don’t do work for hire, but if you have something to trade. . .
    I believe they are going to carry a 6/8 Wosty. I do pretty much just bone and horn, and at some point I will venture into some MOP

    In the interest of not being a stranger, and sharing a little something from my current rabbit hole with all of you, here is what I'm currently working on. Strictly speaking, I'm only making the knots for these. The handles have been turned by Tony Forsyth here in Australia, and they are Honduran rosewood burl.

    Hand tied knots sounds like an interesting rabbit hole. The knots are looking really nice. The tips are looking nice and even and the bases look dense. The guy turning the handles is doing a good job too. This is most intriguing. I have seen supplies advertised for making knots but have avoided looking too close for fear of falling in.

    Nice work, yours and his. I too have not ventured into brushes, making or collecting, as of yet. I have enough to keep me broke already.. My hat's off to you both. :

    That looks mighty fine !

    Still waiting on my part for the golden nib to have some master badger silvertip in stores...
    I have this wonderful sterling silver travel badger which used to be the property of a Spanish Marquess (Marques del Muni) and would love to fit it with a top of the shelf knot.


    And I can't wait for my workshop to be functional again, I've been trying to work on a CVH MK 10 yesterday on the kitchen table and the thing begged to be handled in proper conditions.

    * sigh *
    Beautiful is important, but when all is said and done, you will always be faithful to a good shaver while a bad one may detter you from ever trying again. Judge with your skin, not your eyes.

    You might want to consider a Maggard's SHD badger knot for your needs if they make one small enough. I recently got one in 28mm and it is a very nice 2 band badger. Their overseas shipping seems very reasonable also.

    Well that's the issue with travel badgers, they need a very small knot, 16mm for this one, and very few are made.
    I asked Plisson if they could do it as a special order with high mountain white and they won't. And on the golden nib, only the master badger carry the diameter for a silvertip. They should have some soon, they told me.

    Maggard does not seem to sell 16mm knots, at least at the time

    Yes, I was afraid none of their SHD badger knots would be in that small a size. Seems small knots are really out of favour these days.
