The Ghost has arrived perfectly packed in a very nice acrylic transparent cage. I have already make the first lather to remove the faint scent of wet, dead dog of the fur, and after another one it may be ready for a night shave. It is more beautiful than it looks on pictures (like most brushes), so even better, as it already looks cute. Now I have to do some research regarding high mountain hair, that already, has flourish after first odor-cleaning lathering :)

Thanks Tony!

Thanks Fer, Enjoy !! (y)
There is still another 4 TF Custom Shaving Brushes left at this special deal price, and I am really surprised there is no takers on the Australian Burl and tinted resin brushes :rolleyes:
Cheers

Probably as they're only 24/26mm my friend :(

G'day Tony

Where have you've been you magnificent bastard? What loft height do you set this 30mm Whipped Dog Boar knot?

I am still around haha, still keep my eye on things every now and then. Now to answer your question, This one was set at 52mm as per the customers request ;-)
Cheers
Tony.
52mm sounds quite deep for a 30mm Whipped Dog boar knot, I would prefer around 55mm loft to give a gentle good splayness and flow for a 30mm boar knot

I just love the look of this Australian Beauty of a timber. Not the easiest to work with as it is pretty hard and the medullary rays are very brittle.
So something different for a change.
This one is turned from a lovely piece of "Allocasuarina inophloia" with one of its common names being Hairy Oak. Its a very hard wood and has incredible depth and colour. The medullary rays are incredible on each and every piece. The knot is a 28mm synthetic and the colour suits the Hairy Oak very well and is oh so soft to the touch ;-)
The timber has been sealed and finished in Cyanoacrylate so water will not be an issue.
This one may make it to my brush collection if not sold prior :p
Cheers
Tony

Just like to say, Tony is a very patient and talented man how took the ramblings of an idiot and come up with the antique golden boar you see now. @SpeedyPC I went with a 52 loft as I have a very coarse beard and really love a lot of scrub in a brush.
You should’ve chosen the Omega boar knot, because, it’s a bit stiffer than the Whipped Dog boar knot, which is very similar to Semogue and Zenith.
