Saturday night I ordered the same two Omega brushes on the left. I will use the small one for a travel brush.

Any comments on the quality of the badger hair? The site I purchased from lists as pure badger while the second from the left appears to be the same as one listed on Em's Place as silvertip.

Does the Milk Churn have the "eavestrough" around the top like the Tulips?

"eavestrough" - a much nicer and more descriptive word than "gutter"

........and yes it does.

Yes, Milk Churn includes the eavestrough.

Nice. I am awaiting my T4. Would you say the Milk Churn is similar to the Tulips from the eavestrough up?

Richard, The Tulips are Super Badger, sometimes even true Whites, of late. The Milk Churns are Best Badger.

Very nice additions Steve - I'm digging that Milk Churn - how big would the knot be on it?

That's interesting, since to my eye, the Milk Churn appears to have a wider knot. Em's place lists the knot size of the MC at 21mm.

Em's measurement is incorrect, at least as far as my MC is concerned. Actual measurement is just a hairsbreath under 23mm.

edit: Make that right at 23mm for the MC while the T3 is just a hairsbreath under 23mm. Essentially the same knot size for both.

Steve's Milk Churn looks like it will fill those Harris soap bowls just right. It's been confirmed the T3 works well I think even with those smaller bowls. Great to see the conversation turn towards the handles once again. The Simpson handles are quite unique in shape and form.
