Looking at B16 and B2. That's the aluminum 24 and 26mm handled boar. Anyone own one?

I have these metal handled Zenith boars and several that have other handles or knots. They're all good.
Better than good. Very, very good. I love my Zenith boars.

The Mondial is probably my favorite boar, but the Zeniths are very very close.
There are some great brushes out there.

Never heard anything bad about a Zenith boar. I'd like to have the 24 mm aluminum boar one day, but I have plenty for the foreseeable future. My favorite brush of all is my Zenith Manchurian. They make great brushes.

The aluminum handle is not light weight but it is much lighter than their other metal handle whether it's chrome plated or naked brass like the two above.
I am not a fan of copper or aluminum handles. Otherwise great

I like all sorts of handles including (I suspect) some handle shapes I don't yet own, but what do you not like about aluminum and copper handles? What about other metals?

These are both Omegas. Connaught offers both.
Not saying you should like anything particular. It doesn't matter to me and is none of my business but I'm curious.
