Horn Beehive - dark Horse

Title says it, faux horn beehive with dark horse knot. 24mm knot in 1” socket which I use on most I make. Not glued yet and not washed/bloomed. Set pretty low since it is horse but not 100% on loft yet. Loft advice welcome.

Have a 24mm white horse knot I think I’ll make a twin handle in tortoise and have the horse twins. I have to admit I really have not spent any time using horse knots in the past so this is for fun and experimenting.

Big time stunner. Used my high lofted horse just yesterday. Champion face painter, but still managed to face lather the soap stick I had applied. I guess it’s just preference, but a good painter is always fun.
 
If you're not sure on the loft I would suggest setting it with a dab of silicone for testing. That way you can easily remove and reset till you find the loft you like.
That's a great looking handle BTW.
 
Thanks guys. Was super fast like maybe 20 minutes or so on the lathe. I only use silicone, so all can come out if needed. Certainly good advice Mr GAW
