    Default 'Le Tuft' Chubby 1.5 Beejay Custom, in Lignum Vitae

    Well before we get to the brush and spec, I would like to say a very big thank you to Bill for making me this custom take on a Chubby 1.5.
    The whole process of having a bespoke brush made by Bill was an absolute pleasure, from the early e-mails, telephone calls and the little details that you would expect from someone who puts so such pride and craftmanship into making this unique and surperbly crafted brush.

    And now for the spec's and photo's.
    26mm two band finest knot.
    Loft 48.5mm
    Lignum Vitae body inlaid Sterling Silver name plate

    He's rather talented that Beejay, nice piece of work.

    I've not had success with a finish yet on a brush handle, not that my turning is a patch on Bill's.

    Cheers Nic, as you say Bills a very talented individual, I like him a lot and really enjoyed speaking with him, I will certainly have another brush made by Bill in the future.

    Regards Jamie.

    Ah so you're the other Welshman beejay mentioned... I rang Bill yesterday to place an order, he mentioned he had just done a brush for a man from the Valleys... I suppose Merthyr counts
    Nice brush mate, looks cracking.

    Have you taken her out for a spin? Are those pre or post bloom pics?

    Well hello there Swansea Jack, I suppose Merthyr counts, you Jack's have always been comedians . You couldn't have picked someone better than Bill to make you a brush, he's a great bloke and true craftsman, i'm very pleased with all the comments, the photo's look good, but the brush is even better in the flesh so to speak.

    Regards Jamie
