    Guys I want to again thank again all involved for their help in making the first P&C LE brush a reality!

    First of all @Tony Forsyth from Perfect Pens and Pencils for his wonderful work and generosity – I really think this project is a great success and the brushes look stunning!!!

    Then I would like to thank @Korbz for finding Tony, his design, help with setting the knots, driving back and forth, convincing Tony to shave...mate this would not have been possible without you – the next couple of beers are definitely on me (y)

    Of course Bob Quinn from Elite Razors for the great knots and the fantastic price on them and of course @Monsta_AU – for putting up with us (or was it the other way round?) :D :D :D

    And last but not least I want to thank all of you, who supported us with your wallet and bought one of these beauties - I really hope these brushes will bring you lots of joy!

    So here it is: The Platypus – handles Made by @Tony Forsyth from Perfect Pens and Pencils, knots supplied by Bob Quinn from Elite Razors – Limited to 25 pieces!

    These are some impressions from Tony – please add your own pictures to this thread and keep it alive for at least one year ;)

    Oh my, they look amazing!

    Seems like my choice of a 24mm Bulb is extremely rare as well, only 2 made and only one staying in the country!

    My hat is off to everyone who made this possible. The brushes look amazing and I am sure they are going to take pride of place in all our members dens. I for one cannot wait to receive mine and take it on it's first run!

    Great minds and shavers think alike - excellent choice!!! I am hoping for the brush in front, but open as they all look awesome. Hoping for quick trip across the Pacific to the US. I also wish to thank everyone involved - looks like 25 happy P&C members.

    These look amazing - its really been a privilege to have been part of the process from the ground up (if only as an observer) and have an amazing brush that is the distillation of the efforts of all the great blokes involved !! Thanks especially to @Tony Forsyth but also to @Korbz ,@alfredus and @Monsta_AU for the coordination.

    Really looking forward to owning one of these platypuses (y)(y)(y)

    That sounds good, I would rather like one in butterscotch I am thinking, 26mm bulb.

    I will send you a PM later in the week to see if anything can be done, you can never have too many high quality brushes in the stables the way I see it :)

    Ok just a quick update before I go and have a nice relaxing shave !!
    All P&C LE Brushes are now packaged and boxed and bagged oh and did I say lots of bubble wrap. I have also decided because I know I am not the only one that gets impatient waiting on a delivery to send all the Australian brushes Express post so hopefully Australia Post performs and you all receive them very soon. All will be lodged with Australia Post just after 9:00am tomorrow morning. The two going to our friends in the good old US of A will also despatch tomorrow morning and hopefully make a speedy trip over the pond.
    I will post here again later with all the tracking numbers for the Australian parcels and tomorrow I will post both Airmail parcel id #'s for both our friends in the USA.

    I would also like to thank everybody for their support and trust in me being that I am one of the new kids on the block with such a project and I hope you all like your P&C LE 2017 TF Custom Brushes. I also look forward to developing a working relationship with all at P&C and I also look forward to bringing you all some new ideas and possibly some other nice products down the track.
    Now it would be unfair of me if I did not thank Mark @Korbz he was the guy who found me and has assisted with sharing of knowledge all things shaving and has dropped around to the workshop a few times whenever I had questions or needed assistance so Thanks mate !! and stop finding me things to spend my hard earned pennies on ;) Also a very big thank you to Farzad @alfredus for all his time and prompt answers to questions and anything that needed to be done during prototyping through to the completed product very much appreciated mate. Last but not least the big Kahuna Joel @Monsta_AU for allowing it all to happen and also for his prompt input when required very much appreciated. Ok second last but not least to all of you for participating in the P&C Group buy and in turn supporting me as a new Australian Custom Brush artisan I appreciate all your support and look forward to sharing many more shaves with you all and working with you in the future as I am sorry to say it here to stay now (y)
    Cheers and have a good night all
    Tony
