Oh wow, a custom ordered brush here in the form of "nature's plastic" (buffalo horn).
Harder and denser than anything I've turned on the wood lathe before (stinks to hell too when working it) but boy it turned out just beautiful. All natural character grain included under the natural shine by sanding and polishing only.
Look for it soon in the monthly acquisitions thread I'm sure.
Topped with a 28mm 2 band fan.
Very comfortable this shape, in various positions for the various functions, lathering knot down in a bowl the shape is comfortable for the time needed there, lathering on face the grip is different of course, but very nice still, the fingers just fit nicely wherever you need them for the various grips needed for the task at hand at the time. Very versatile shape that I really like.
