    Default Trustone/Buffalo horn Shavemac

    I just wrapped up this brush and set the knot before lunch. A handle and shape I've done before with the same material. This one has a Shavemac DO1 2 band 24mm set at 47mm. Love working with true stone, especially this specific colour. This "Dragon Skin" turns, sands, and polishes so nicely. Other types of Trustone in the past have been very, very difficult to work with. Very hard stuff.

    A little too stubby for my taste but still Magnific! (and I wouldn't expect less than that from Andrew)

    Great looking brush... and a Shavemac knot to boot!
    Love the look of torquoise with the horn accent.

    I've been tempted to get some of that dragon stone for pen turning Andrew. Just made up my mind, thanks buddy.

    Oh, looks frikkin awesome as well. Great match of the horn and stone.
    Cheers.

    Nice job. I love the look of it but it is a bit stubby. Guess I like a longer handle. And with my favorite knot. Your tempting me. Still a beauty!

    Well done, Andrew. A beautiful brush with quite a backbone!

    Grabbed this brush this morning after letting the glue dry for the knot. These D01 2 bands have some crazy backbone. It's unreal how firm these hairs stay. Such a quality knot.
