    Default Show Your Custom Brushes!

    I don't know if there is a thread like this already.. but here we go! I received a brush from Mastershake several months ago from a trade we did, it has to be one of the best brushes I have ever used! I have a $100 Caswell-Massey silver tip and it doesn't even come close to my custom brush. So, in celebration to the awesomeness of my everyday brush... Show of your favorite custom brush! Mine has a stand with my school the University of Houston.. pretty sweet I know ;D Lets see what you gentleman have!
    attached is a picture of the brush with its stand and a picture with it compared to my Caswell-Massey brush.

    Ok here goes, I make these. The first two pics are of my personal brush, Bull horn and African Pear wood.

    And the second handle below it is one I'm making out of Bull Horn and Brazilian Teak for a customer.

    I don't know if these are customs per se, because they are not unique, but they aren't mass-produced, either.

    PC Woodcraft Snakewood


    Bryce C Ironwood


    King1976 Bocote handle set with a TGN Black Badger (though I'm replacing that knot with a finest as soon as it arrives).

    Thanks. It really is a nice-looking brush, but I just find the black badger hair too prickly. Hopefully, I can re-knot it without ruining the handle.

    Those are beautiful. I'm interested. Can you give me some more info on prices and choices. I love the bull horn and exotic wood! I'm a noob to this site, so I don't know if e-mailing me would be better, but my e-mail is mskennedyrn@live.com
    Thanks,
    Mike

    You can just PM him, just so you don't put your private info out there like that.
