Custom Brushes for Sale.....
Something new on a limited basis,
I will be offering Handmade Custom Deer, & Elk Antler brushes for sale, I have Elk Antler in stock now and I build the brushes to order.. I can use almost any color as a base, with or without a Silver or Brass liner, the brushes can be left more natural with the base simply sealed with Epoxy...
 The brushes are all made with 22 - 30 mm Silvertip Overstuffed Knots ... The Antler is sealed and the knots are secured with Marine Grade 2 ton epoxy, so they should last a lifetime..
These are of course Natural Antler and no two are the same  Cool  The picture is brush with a Brass lined Amber Base....
Prices start at $60 and go up from there depending on the base and the size of the Knot
I am now Turning my own brushes, and after working on the finish now for over a year and I think I have the solution I was wanting for the wood handles...
Instead of just putting finish "On" the wood, I am using a Vacuum Chamber to completely seal the wood inside and out.. Each completed wood handle is placed under Vacuum for 48 -72 hours, I am using Daly's Seafin Marine wood sealer on the tight grain woods, and Polyurethane on the others.. After the wood has become completly impregnated with the finish, the handle is dried for 3 weeks or longer... They are then coated with Renaissance Wax and machine buffed 3 times..

The Knots are either 22mm or 24mm Overstuffed SilverTips I normally set them slightly low (about 52mm) so they have a tiny bit more body.. All knots are set with 3500 lb Marine Grade Epoxy..
The Flash Acrylics are the same blanks as I have been using on scales for several years, these and the Wood brushes can be made to match a set of Custom scales.. The knots and how they are mounted are the same as above..   




Gemstar Shipping Charges
