The Last of It

Discussion in 'Brush Making and Restorations' started by stone and strop, Feb 28, 2019.

    Well, this is the last of my Big Leaf Maple Burl and Acrylic.
    Hand sanded after leaving the lathe, primary sanding to 2k on the lathe.
    There is no finish on these to speak of, the first just a high grit sand to 12k.
    This one I waxed after the final sand then buffed.
    This and the other are my finest quality and never will another of the same be made. That billet is gone and can't be repeated given the nature of its parts.

  3. Undoubtedly one of a kind.
     
  4. Nice work. I like the shape of that handle and the material is very interesting.
     
  5. Thank you guys.
    I'm really happy that things worked out as they did.
    I was lucky enough to have the best knots I have ever seen come available to me (thanks Jim) when I bought this blank.
    These are truly unique and one of a kind, amazing stuff.
     
  6. I am thrilled that you are impressed with the knots Paul. Knowing the quality of knots you have and have used. Like I said before I liked my badgers before, but this quality of knots takes Badger to another level. I might start making some of these knots available to other members on the forum. Beautiful brush, beautiful work my friend. Enjoy!

  11. Thanks.
    It is a 23mm knot from JB1963.
    He has a friend in Germany that has access to them. They are the finest Badger knots I've seen, very high quality.
