Those are handsome brushes, John. I especially find the plexi handle appealing.

Thanks, Murray. I think the Plexi is going to be a favorite.

Very nice brushes, John. I've got a similar Plexi, but with a 28mm knot, and it's a wonderful brush. Handle is very similar to Plisson's Plexi.

That's an amazing and beautiful array of brushes, John.

How do these compare to other two-banded lofts that you have tried?
