    Default 2 brushes in Acrylic/Kirinite

    I had free go nuts on these 2 brushes, but after hearing the story for who they were for, I wanted to use the kirinite in there for sure, as well as keeping them very similar but also different from each other. I'll let John fill you in on who they are for.

    I decided on a basic, yet classic shape and also used the Acrylic for maximum durability. The knots are 24mm 2 bands set at 48mm loft. I also took video of the entire process of me making these brushes, but wont have that edited and posted for another couple days.

    Thanks for looking Gentleman!

    One of the things around here that boggles my mind is everyone is very productive and making really nice stuff, and this thread is yet another perfect example. Here is the part that makes me go wow, everyone has a day job. All the skill and production while working a day job and having families. Plus we get beautiful brush pictures.

    I'm not sure if I have ever commented on your brushes (I just can't seem to recall) but you really do make incredible brushes.

    These brushes will be given at Christmas to some employees at Bass Pro, who I convinced this past year to give up their disposables for vintage Gillette's. They are using boar brushes now.

    Thank you Andrew, they will both be happy to use a quality brush.

    I talk a bit about this in my vid. Evenings seem to disappear in a snap these days. Come home from work after being there for 10 hrs. Play with my girls, melt into the sofa, and it's time to go to bed. I hate how fast the days disappear.

    Thanks so much. I try really hard to make sure each and every one is shaped perfectly. I have some big plans coming up with some natural material and a Shave Mac knot as well as finally making my 27mm Simpson/Walrus ivory brush.
