    No, thank you for being so generous. You show the true spirit of B&B. :a14:

    24AD6BB7-B329-4330-A290-EF61E05CC679.jpeg I used her on my B&M Tuesday and though more of a croap I had no issues...enjoy the Precious! But send her home!
     
  3. I'm sending her in the opposite direction though, all the way to Burnaby. Giddyup!
     
  4. Great pictures @T.Orso, I can't wait to give it a try. Take your time with the goodies though.

    @Somnos, don't worry the horsie will come home to you :)

    Thanks again to @Graydog and @rockviper for the awesome brushes and generosity passing them along!

    Hey @T.Orso try the Shannon’s Soaps Barbershop...you will love it!
     
  7. A new day, and a new Graydog brush to try.

    This little boar in a stout handle is scrubby! I put it on the attack on one of the samples that are part of the snowballing bundle that Graydog started when he sent too many brushes to Rockviper. Thanks Somnos for the Eleven sample, which was Cedar/Sweetgrass/Vetiver.

    Nice stuff. I like the combination of these scents and found that their intensity was set just right, enough to enjoy but not to overpower.

    A small scrubby boar was just the thing to work some soap out of the sample container. It delivered on the handsome face end of things too (poetic license available for inspection on request). This is just a great no-nonsense brush with a perfectly comfortable handle that also happens (thanks to Graydog and his reclaimed maple) to be a beautiful object.

    Same Aristocrat Junior and Lab Blue blade. Awesome combination.

    The company rebranded as “eleven” but was known previously as
    Sapone di Paolo and I own a few. Great stuff they make!

    I was REALLY impressed with how that simple handle design is so ergonomic.
     
  11. I like the simple elegance of that brush, They are all amazing looking brushes.
     
  12. IMG_20190411_163713648.jpg On top of the two custom boars he had already made for me, he now, knowing that I appreciate vintage, boars, and a particular style of handle, sends me the Old Spice brush to match my mug. Making me have to divide my attention more amongst my farrow. They will probably go feral and become a sounder from the lack of individual attention.

    Those are beautiful @Clay S ! Love the Old Spice brush but that Black Palm Boar...holy cows!
     
  14. Before I scrolled down and read the next comment I was thinking the same thing. That is a beautiful group of brushes but that black palm brush handle looks amazing and I'd also like to know what knot that is.
     
  15. Here are the two beautiful brushes bestowed upon me buy the venerable @Graydog

    A horse in Black Walnut and Ash and a two band badger in Bocote.

    Holy smokes! Are you kidding me?!! Wow @Graydog that is some beautiful work!
     
  17. He is an artist, and an inspirational gentleman. I strive to make brushes a beautiful as his.
     
  18. Wow! that is all, Wow!
     
  19. That is a knot from a Stirling boar brush.
     
  20. Wow. If I didn't already have a 28mm boar knot on it's way, that would be a very tempting route to go I'll have to keep them in mind for future reference.
