    So I finished 4 last week and now I need knots
    I am going to keep one and I was thinking I would like to try a Shavemac Badger
    can You purchase just the knot only ?
    Or possibly a Maggard Silver Tip , has anyone tried one yet that they can give me a
    review ? Maybe Elite Razor ?
    That is just one Amazing Tree that keeps giving up Beautiful Grain and color . Maple7.jpg
     
  2. Those are just gorgeous
     
  3. All amazing brushes. That is truly an amazing tree and you have brought out the beauty for all of us to enjoy.
     
  4. Those are beautiful Steve.

    Beautiful handles, the grain is stunning.
     
  6. Simply beautiful. Does the one in the left corner have a different finish? It looks satin compared to the others. And may I ask what you use to achieve this glass like coat? Tons of polished CA?

  7. Wow! Great work! One of those red 'blood knots' would look awesome in one of those handles l think.
     
  8. Super nice Steve! I'd love to be the owner of the third one in the picture. It deserves a great Badger knot!

    The end one on the far left looks a different because it is turned from the end grain
    And it reflects the light a little different.
    Same finish 12 or so thin coats of CA and then buffing and polished
     
  14. The second one from left is the masterpiece in my opinion. These are very nice!

    That one is really nice in person, it reflects the light and makes the grain really pop.

    don't know how anyone can say "X" is the best one, they all look amazing. Shavemac badger knots are outstanding. Haven't tried the Maggard badgers, only have synthetic from them.
     
  18. @ everyone

    Can we gift an Shavemac knot to Graydog as an appreciation gesture ? He has blessed this community above expectations. Would someone please organise it ? I am not that good in this area.
